Brief Summary

This study evaluates ADCT-301 in patients with Selected Advanced Solid Tumors. Patients will participate in a Treatment Period with 3-week cycles and a Follow-up Period every 12 weeks for up to 1 year after treatment discontinuation.

Detailed Description

This is a Phase 1b, multi-center, open-label study with a dose-escalation part and a dose
expansion part.

The duration of the study participation for each patient is defined as the time from the date
of signed written informed consent to the completion of the follow-up period, withdrawal of
consent, loss to follow-up, or death, whichever occurs first.

The study will include a Screening Period (of up to 21 days), a Treatment Period (with cycles
of 3 weeks for a Q3W dosing regimen), and a Follow-up Period (approximately every 12 week
visits) for up to 1 year after treatment discontinuation

glutamyl transferase (GGT) ≤2.5 × the upper limit of normal (ULN) if there is no
liver involvement; ALT or AST ≤5 × ULN if there is liver involvement.

total bilirubin up to ≤3 × ULN with direct bilirubin ≤1.5 × ULN).

6. Blood creatinine ≤1.5 × ULN or calculated creatinine clearance ≥60 mL/min by the
Cockcroft-Gault equation.

9. Negative beta-human chorionic gonadotropin (β-HCG) pregnancy test within 7 days prior
to start of study drug for women of childbearing potential.

10. Women of childbearing potential must agree to use a highly effective method of
contraception from the time of giving informed consent until at least 16 weeks after
the last dose of camidanlumab tesirine. Men with female partners who are of
childbearing potential must agree to use a condom when sexually active or practice
total abstinence from the time of giving informed consent until at least 16 weeks

Exclusion Criteria:

1. Participation in another investigational interventional study.

2. Prior therapy with a CD25 (IL-2R) antibody within the last 4 months.

3. Known history of ≥Grade 3 hypersensitivity to a therapeutic antibody.

hypertensive medication), unstable angina, congestive heart failure (greater than New
York Heart Association class II), electrocardiographic evidence of acute ischemia,
coronary angioplasty or myocardial infarction within 6 months prior to screening,

diabetes, active ulceration of the upper gastrointestinal (GI) tract or GI bleeding,
or severe chronic pulmonary disease.

18. Major surgery, radiotherapy, chemotherapy or other anti-neoplastic therapy within 14

For cytotoxic agents that have major delayed toxicity, e.g., mitomycin C and
nitrosoureas, 4 weeks is indicated as washout period. For patients receiving systemic
anticancer immunotherapies (as opposed to intralesional) that lead to activation of
Teffs and/or increase the Teff/Treg ratio, such as anti-PD-1 antibodies, 4 weeks are
indicated as the washout period.

19. Use of any other experimental medication within 14 days prior to start of study drug

20. Patients requiring concomitant immunosuppressive agents or chronic treatment with
corticosteroids except:

- replacement dose steroids in the setting of adrenal insufficiency

- topical, inhaled, nasal, and ophthalmic steroids are allowed

21. Planned live vaccine administration after starting study drug (C1D1).

22. Congenital long QT syndrome, or a corrected QTcF interval of ≥ 480 ms, at screening
(unless secondary to pacemaker or bundle branch block).

23. Active second primary malignancy other than non-melanoma skin cancers, non-metastatic
prostate cancer, in situ cervical cancer, ductal or lobular carcinoma in situ of the
breast, or other malignancy that the Sponsor's medical monitor and Investigator agree
and document should not be exclusionary.

24. Any other significant medical illness, abnormality, or condition that would, in the
