Details and patient eligibility


This Phase1, multicenter, first-in-human, open-label, dose-escalation, and dose expansion study will evaluate the safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetics, and preliminary anti-tumor efficacy of HLX35 administered as a single-agent by IV infusion every 2 weeks to patients with locally advanced or metastatic solid malignancies, who have failed or are intolerant to standard therapy, or for whom no standard therapy is available. This study has two parts: phase 1a dose escalation and phase 1b dose expansion.

Trial design

Primary purpose




Interventional model

Sequential Assignment


None (Open label)

82 participants in 2 patient groups

Phase 1a dose-escalation stage
Experimental group
Phase 1a uses the "3+3" design, to investigate the safety and determine the MTD of HLX35. Seven dose levels of 0.015 mg/kg, 0.05 mg/kg, 0.1 mg/kg, 0.3 mg/kg, 1 mg/kg, 3 mg/kg, and 10 mg/kg are planned for dose finding. Enrollment will continue until a maximum of 42 patients are enrolled
Drug: HLX35
Phase 1b dose-expansion stage
Experimental group
Patients with sqNSCLC (EGFR H score≥200) will be enrolled in two expansion cohorts, at doses equal to or lower than the MTD, to better characterize the safety, tolerability, PK variability, and preliminary efficacy of single-agent HLX35. Phase 1b dose expansion will include 15-20 per-protocol treated patients, as defined above, in each of the two expansion cohorts.
Drug: HLX35
