Brief Summary:

This study is to assess the safety and tolerability, and to assess the preliminary clinical benefit of NKTR-214 when combined with pembrolizumab (KEYTRUDA®) with or without chemotherapy.

The study is comprised of two groups; dose optimization and dose expansion cohorts.

Dose Optimization included first-line and second-line advanced or metastatic solid tumors including non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC)

The dose expansion cohort will include first-line NSCLC patients.


Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer Drug: NKTR-214 Drug: Pembrolizumab Drug: Cisplatin Drug: Carboplatin Drug: Nab paclitaxel Drug: Paclitaxel Drug: Pemetrexed Phase 1 Phase 2

Detailed Description:

NKTR-214 is a cytokine (investigational agent) that is designed to target CD122, a protein which is found on certain immune cells (known as CD8+ T Cells and Natural Killer Cells) to expand these cells to promote their anti-tumor effects. Pembrolizumab is a programmed death receptor -1 (PD-1) blocking, fully humanized, engineered monoclonal antibody of IgG1 isotype that promotes anti-tumor effects.

The study will evaluate the clinical benefit, safety and tolerability of combining NKTR-214 with pembrolizumab with or without chemotherapy. Each dose expansion cohort will enroll approximately 100 new patients.

Dose Optimization evaluated an every three-week dose regimen (q3w) of NKTR-214 in combination with pembrolizumab given that the optimal dose and dosing schedule of NKTR-214 in combination with pembrolizumab remains unknown. The previously established recommended Phase 2 dose (0.006 mg/kg) of NKTR-214 was studied in combination with nivolumab.

Dose Expansion: NKTR-214 in combination with pembrolizumab will be evaluated in first-line non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). The NKTR-214 dose to be studied is 0.006 mg/kg q3w. This dose is based on the recommended phase 2 dose noted in the monotherapy trial with NKTR-214 (Study 15-214-01, NCT02869295) and an ongoing combination trial (16-214-02, NCT02983045). Pembrolizumab will be administered at a dose of 200mg q3w. Following data review for safety and efficacy, additional patients may be dosed using the findings from the dose optimization cohorts.

    Safety and Tolerability of NKTR-214 in combination with pembrolizumab (Keytruda®) as evaluated by incidence of drug-emergent Adverse Events (AEs), Serious Adverse Events (SAEs), AEs leading to drug discontinuation, and fatal AEs.

  2. Recommended Phase 2 Dose (RP2D) or Maximum Tolerated Dose (MTD) or optimal dosing schedule of NKTR-214 in combination with pembrolizumab (Keytruda®) [ Time Frame: 100 days after last dose ]
    To define the Recommended Phase 2 Dose (RP2D), or Maximum Tolerated Dose (MTD), or optimal dosing schedule of NKTR-214 in combination with pembrolizumab (Keytruda®), by evaluating the incidence of Dose Limiting Toxicities (DLTs) within the DLT window (21 days after first dose), drug-related AEs, SAEs, adverse events leading to discontinuation, deaths and overall tolerability.

  3. Objective response rate (ORR) per blinded independent central review (BICR) by RECIST 1.1 of NKTR-214 plus pembrolizumab with or without systemic chemotherapy in patients with untreated metastatic NSCLC [ Time Frame: 100 days after last dose ]
    ORR is defined as the proportion of enrolled participants who achieved a Best Overall Response (BOR) of CR or PR. CR is defined as disappearance of all target lesions. Any pathological lymph nodes (whether target or non-target) had to have reduction in short axis to < 10 mm. PR is defined as at least a 30% decrease in the sum of diameters of target lesions, taking as reference the baseline sum diameters. ORR is calculated as the sum of CR and PR.


Secondary Outcome Measures :

    Safety and Tolerability of NKTR-214 plus pembrolizumab (Keytruda®) with or without systemic chemotherapy as evaluated by incidence of drug-related Adverse Events (AEs), Serious Adverse Events (SAEs), and adverse events leading to discontinuation, deaths, and overall tolerability.

  2. Objective response rate (ORR) per RECIST 1.1 in Dose Optimization [ Time Frame: Through study completion, an expected average of 2 years ]
    ORR is defined as the proportion of enrolled participants who achieved a Best Overall Response (BOR) of CR or PR. CR is defined as disappearance of all target lesions. Any pathological lymph nodes (whether target or non-target) had to have reduction in short axis to < 10 mm. PR is defined as at least a 30% decrease in the sum of diameters of target lesions, taking as reference the baseline sum diameters. ORR is calculated as the sum of CR and PR.

  3. Duration of response (DOR) using RECIST 1.1 [ Time Frame: Through study completion, an expected average of 2 years ]
    DOR for patients who have confirmed complete response (CR) or confirmed partial response (PR) as the date from first documented CR or PR to the date of the first objectively documented disease progression per RECIST 1.1 or death due to any cause, whichever is earlier. CR is defined as disappearance of all target lesions. Any pathological lymph nodes (whether target or non-target) had to have reduction in short axis to < 10 mm. PR is defined as at least a 30% decrease in the sum of diameters of target lesions, taking as reference the baseline sum diameters.

  4. Clinical benefit rate (CBR) using RECIST 1.1 [ Time Frame: Through study completion, an expected average of 2 years ]
    CBR is defined as the number of patients with confirmed complete response, confirmed partial response, or stable disease (≥ 7 weeks).

  5. Time to Response (TTR) using RECIST 1.1 [ Time Frame: Through study completion, an expected average of 2 years ]
    TTR will be defined for patients who had confirmed CR or confirmed PR as the time from the date of first dose to date of first documented CR or PR per RECIST 1.1. CR is defined as disappearance of all target lesions. Any pathological lymph nodes (whether target or non-target) had to have reduction in short axis to < 10 mm. PR is defined as at least a 30% decrease in the sum of diameters of target lesions, taking as reference the baseline sum diameters.

  6. Progression-Free Survival (PFS) using RECIST 1.1 [ Time Frame: Through study completion, an expected average of 2 years ]
    PFS is defined as the time from date of first dose to the date of the first objectively documented tumor progression or death due to any cause

  7. Overall Survival (OS) [ Time Frame: Through study completion, an expected average of 2 years ]
    OS is defined as the time from date of first dose to the date of death.

  8. To assess the association between efficacy measures and PD L1 expression in tumors. [ Time Frame: Through study completion, an expected average of 2 years ]
    Efficacy measures are defined as ORR and changes in PD-L1 expression from on treatment biopsy in Dose Optimization.
