Brief Summary

IMCnyeso is a new biological therapy designed for the treatment of cancers which express NY-ESO-1 and/or LAGE-1A. This is a first-in-human trial designed to evaluate the safety and efficacy of IMCnyeso in adult patients who have the appropriate HLA-A2 tissue marker and whose cancer is positive for NY-ESO-1 and/or LAGE-A1.

Detailed Description

This is a multi-center, open label, dose finding Phase 1/2 study of single agent IMCnyeso
administered in patients with NY-ESO-1 and/or LAGE-A1 positive tumors. The study consists of
2 Arms. In the first Arm (the dose escalation phase), IMCnyeso will be evaluated in 4
diseases (advanced non-small cell cancer (NSCLC), melanoma, urothelial carcinoma, and
synovial sarcoma). The primary objective of this Arm is to determine the maximum tolerated
dose (MTD) and/or recommended Phase II dose (RP2D) of IMCnyeso. The second Arm is an
expansion phase in which the dose determined in Arm 1 will be tested in 3 diseases (advanced
NSCLC, urothelial carcinoma and synovial sarcoma) to further evaluate the safety and assess
the anti-tumor activity of IMCnyeso

medication. Local steroid therapies are acceptable 10. Systemic anti-cancer therapy within
2 weeks of the first dose of study drug.

11. Major surgery within 2 weeks of the first dose of study drug 12. Radiotherapy within 2
weeks of the first dose of study drug, with the exception of palliative radiotherapy to a
limited field 13. Use of hematopoietic colony-stimulating growth factors (eg, G-CSF,
GM-CSF, M-CSF) ≤ 2 weeks prior to start of study drug 14. Pregnant, likely to become
pregnant, or lactating women
