Probody therapeutics are an emerging class of immuno-oncology therapies aimed at reducing the immune-related side effects associated with immune checkpoint inhibitors. A new multicohort study at the Earle A. Chiles Research Institute, a division of Providence Cancer Institute in the Robert W. Franz Cancer Center, tests the anticancer effects of an experimental probody therapeutic in patients with solid cancers:
- A Phase 2, Open-Label, Multi-Cohort Combination Study of PD-L1 Probody Therapeutic CX-072 in Combination With Other Anticancer Therapy in Adults With Solid Tumors
CX-072 is a probody therapeutic directed against the programmed cell death ligand 1 (PD-L1) in the tumor microenvironment. By targeting the tumor microenvironment, CX-072 enhances the T-cell-mediated anticancer immune response while reducing immune-related side effects in healthy, peripheral tissues.
This phase II study will evaluate the clinical activity of CX-072 in combination with other anticancer therapies in four cohorts of adults with solid tumors:
- Front-line therapy for patients with solid tumors who have received no prior therapy
- Patients with progressive or relapsed solid tumors following PD-1/PD-L1 therapy
- Patients with advanced/unresectable or metastatic disease following platinum-based therapy
- Neoadjuvant therapy for patients with solid tumors who have received no prior therapy
A prior study of CX-072 monotherapy showed anticancer activity and a favorable safety profile in patients with advanced or unresectable solid tumors.
