Details and patient eligibility


This is a single-arm, open-label, multi-center clinical study to evaluate the efficacy and safety of PD-1/CTLA-4 bispecific cadonilimab in combination with oxaliplatin/capecitabine (CapeOX) in the first-line treatment of advanced gastric cancer or gastro-esophageal junction adenocarcinoma with a high tumor microenvironment score (TMEscore). The study plans to enroll 50 patients to receive cadonilimab 100mg/kg, iv, q3w + CapeOX (oxaliplatin 130mg/m2, vd, d1 + capecitabine 1000mg/m2, po, bid, D1-14, q3w, with 3 weeks as a cycle and a maximum of 8 cycles of treatment. Then the maintenance treatment phase with cadonilimab ± capecitabine is entered, and the specific dosage is the same as the treatment period. Effectiveness is assessed every 9 weeks (±7 days) using RECISIT 1.1 until disease recurrence, metastasis, death, or loss of follow-up. The primary endpoint of this study was PFS, and secondary endpoints were OS, ORR, and safety.

Exclusion criteria

  1. Squamous cell carcinoma, undifferentiated or other non-adenocarcinoma histologic type of gastric cancer or gastro-esophageal tumor;
  2. Subjects with known contraindications to cadonilimab, CapeOX (see package inserts for cadonilimab, oxaliplatin, and capecitabine);
  3. Known history of severe intolerance to cadonilimab, oxaliplatin, or capecitabine (i.e., grade 4 toxicity of one of the agents; grade 3-4 toxicity of other concomitant agents is not excluded);
  4. Known history of hypersensitivity or hypersensitivity to cadonilimab, oxaliplatin, other platinum compounds, or fluorouracil;
  5. Known brain or meningeal metastases:
  6. Radiotherapy or any anti-tumor therapy (chemotherapy, targeted therapy, immunotherapy, radio-frequency ablation, traditional Chinese medicine with anti-tumor indications, immunomodulators or tumor embolization, etc.) within 4 weeks prior to the first dose of study treatment;
  7. Prior exposure to any anti-PD-1, anti-PD-L1, anti-CTLA-4 antibodies, or any other antibody or drug therapy against T cell co-stimulation or checkpoint pathways;
  8. Patients have had other malignancies within the past 5 years or at the same time (except for cured basal cell carcinoma of the skin and carcinoma in situ of the cervix);
  9. There are obvious clinical bleeding symptoms or obvious bleeding tendency, hemoptysis, etc. within 3 months before treatment. or venous/venous thrombotic event treatment within the preceding 6 months, such as cerebrovascular accident (including transient ischemic attack, intracerebral hemorrhage, cerebral infarction), deep vein thrombosis, and pulmonary embolism; or requiring long-term anticoagulation with warfarin or heparin, or requiring long-term antiplatelet therapy (aspirin≥ 300 mg/day or clopidogrel ≥75 mg/day);

  12. Concomitant active or uncontrolled severe infection
  13. Any other disease, clinically significant metabolic abnormality, physical examination abnormality, or laboratory abnormality that, in the judgment of the investigator, has reason to suspect that the patient has a certain disease or state that is not suitable for the use of the study drug;
  14. Any condition that, in the opinion of the investigator, may put subjects treated with study drug at risk, interfere with the study drug, subject safety assessment, or interpretation of results.
