Details and patient eligibility

About

The primary objectives of the study are: (1) in the dose-escalation part: to evaluate safety and tolerability and to determine the recommended Phase 2 dose (RP2D) of farletuzumab ecteribulin (MORAb-202) in participants with selected tumor types (ovarian cancer [OC], endometrial cancer [EC], non-small cell lung carcinoma [NSCLC], triple-negative breast cancer [TNBC]), and (2) in dose-confirmation part: to evaluate preliminary efficacy measured by objective response rate (ORR) of farletuzumab ecteribulin (MORAb-202) in participants with OC and EC at selected doses and to further evaluate the safety and tolerability of farletuzumab ecteribulin (MORAb-202) and (3) dose-optimization part. (divided in two parts: Part A [OC and EC participants] and Part B [EC only]): Part A: to evaluate other farletuzumab ecteribulin (MORAb-202) treatment regimens for safety, tolerability and preliminary efficacy in participants with OC and EC; to evaluate the use of the addition of short course of oral corticosteroids following every dose of farletuzumab ecteribulin (MORAb-202) administered every 21 days, as mitigation strategy for interstitial lung disease (ILD); and to select treatment regimens with farletuzumab ecteribulin (MORAb-202) for further evaluation in Part B. Part B: to further evaluate the safety, tolerability and preliminary efficacy of 2 treatment regimens with farletuzumab ecteribulin (MORAb-202) in participants with advanced EC and to determine the recommended treatment regimen for further development of farletuzumab ecteribulin (MORAb-202).

NOTE: All females will be considered to be of childbearing potential unless they are postmenopausal (amenorrheic for at least 12 consecutive months, in the appropriate age group, and without other known or suspected cause) or have been sterilized surgically (that is, bilateral tubal ligation, total hysterectomy, or bilateral oophorectomy, all with surgery at least 1 month before dosing).

*Sexual abstinence is considered a highly effective method only if defined as refraining from heterosexual intercourse during the entire period of risk associated with the study intervention. The reliability of sexual abstinence needs to be evaluated in relation to the duration of the study and the preferred and usual lifestyle of the participant.

  • For Dose-Escalation only: Males who have not had a successful vasectomy (confirmed azoospermia) or they and their female partners do not meet the criteria above (that is, not of childbearing potential or practicing highly effective contraception throughout the study period and for 7 months (5*half-life plus 180 days) after study drug discontinuation).

  • A known history of active TB (bacillus tuberculosis).
  • Scheduled for surgery during the study, other than minor surgery which would not delay study treatment.
  • An active clinically significant (in the opinion of the Investigator) infection requiring systemic therapy within 2 weeks prior to the first dose of study drug.
  • Administration of a live, attenuated vaccine within 4 weeks prior to the first dose of study drug, or anticipation that such a live attenuated vaccine will be required during the study. Inactivated vaccines (such as hepatitis A or polio vaccines) are permitted during the study. Seasonal influenza and COVID-19 vaccines that do not contain live virus are permitted.
