Full description

This study is an open-label first-in-human phase I clinical study to evaluate the safety and tolerability of HLX42 with escalated doses in the treatment of patients with advanced/metastatic solid tumors. In this study, a 3 + 3 dose escalation method will be adopted, and the patients will be administered with HLX42 at different doses via intravenous infusion. The DLT observation period lasts for 3 weeks after the first administration of HLX42.
