Phase 2a Study of BAX69 and 5-FU/Leucovorin or Panitumumab Versus Standard of Care in Subjects With Metastatic Colorectal Cancer


 The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and tolerability of BAX69 in combination with 5-fluorouracil (5-FU)/leucovorin (LV) or panitumumab to determine the recommended phase II dose (RP2D) of each combination; and to compare the efficacy between BAX69 in combination with 5-FU/LV for subjects with KRDigestive System DiseasesAS or NRAS mutated tumor (mt) or panitumumab, for subjects with KRAS and NRAS wild type tumor (wt) and standard of care (SoC) per investigator choice as third or fourth treatment line in subjects with progressive measurable metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC).

Weight between 40 kg and 180 kg 6. Histologically or cytologically confirmed diagnosis of CRC 7. Metastatic CRC not amenable to surgical resection 8. Known KRAS and NRAS mutation status (if unknown status for either of these genes, and no archival tissues is available, a fresh tumor biopsy will be made) 9. At least 1 measurable lesion as defined by RECIST v1.1 10. ECOG PS of 0-2 11. Adequate hematological function, defined as: 1. Platelet count ? 100,000/?L 2. Prothrombin time and activated partial thromboplastin time (aPTT) < 1.5 times the upper limit of normal (ULN) 3. Absolute neutrophil count (ANC) ? 1,000/?L 4. Hemoglobin ? 9 g/dL, without the need for transfusion in the 2 weeks prior to screening 12. Adequate renal function, defined as serum creatinine ? 2.0 times ULN and creatinine clearance > 50 mL/min 13. Adequate liver function, defined as: 1. Aspartate aminotransferase (AST) and alanine aminotransferase (ALT) ? 2.5 times ULN for subjects without liver metastases, or ? 5 times ULN in the presence of liver metastases 2. Bilirubin ? 2.0 times ULN, unless subject has known Gilbert's syndrome 14. Adequate venous access 15. For female subjects of childbearing potential, the subject presents with a negative serum pregnancy test at screening and agrees to employ 2 forms of adequate birth control measures, including at least 1 barrier method (eg, diaphragm with spermicidal jelly or foam, or [for male partner] condom) throughout the course of the study and for at least 90 days after the last administration of BAX69. Other acceptable contraceptive measures include birth control pills/patches or intrauterine devices 16. For male subjects, the subject must agree to use adequate contraceptive measures including at least 1 barrier method (eg, condom with spermicidal jelly or foam and [for the female partner] diaphragm with spermicidal jelly or foam, birth control pills/patches, or intrauterine device) and abstain from sperm donation throughout the course of the study and for at least 90 days after the last administration of BAX69 17. Subject is willing and able to comply with the requirements of the protocol.

Exclusion Criteria

Prior malignancy(s) within the past 3 years, with the exception of curatively treated basal or squamous cell carcinoma of the skin, locally advanced prostate cancer, ductal carcinoma in situ of breast, in situ cervical carcinoma and superficial bladder cancer 3.
