Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety, dose, immunogenicity and early clinical activity of GRT-C901 and GRT-R902, a personalized neoantigen cancer vaccine, in combination with nivolumab and ipilimumab, in patients with metastatic non-small cell lung cancer, microsatellite stable colorectal cancer, gastroesophageal adenocarcinoma, and metastatic urothelial cancer.

Detailed Description:
Tumors harboring non-synonymous deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) mutations can present peptides containing these mutations as non-self antigens in the context of HLA on the tumor cell surface. A fraction of mutated peptides result in neoantigens capable of generating T-cell responses that exclusively target tumor cells. Sensitive detection of these mutations allows for the identification of neoantigens unique to each patient's tumor to be included in a personalized cancer vaccine that targets these neoantigens. This vaccine regimen uses two vaccine vectors as a heterologous prime/boost approach (GRT-C901 first followed by GRT-R902) to stimulate an immune response. This study will explore the safety and early clinical activity of this patient-specific immunotherapy intended to induce T-cell responses specific for neoantigens.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Incidence of adverse events (AEs), serious adverse events (SAEs), and dose-limiting toxicities (DLTs) [ Time Frame: Initiation of study treatment through 100 days post-last dose (up to approximately 27 months) ]
  2. Objective Response Rate (ORR) in Phase 2 using RECIST v1.1 [ Time Frame: Initiation of study treatment until disease progression (up to approximately 27 months) ]
  3. Identify the recommended Phase 2 dose (RP2D) of GRT-C901 and GRT-R902 [ Time Frame: Up to approximately 6 months ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :

  2. Objective Response Rate (ORR) in Phase 1 using RECIST v1.1 [ Time Frame: Initiation of study treatment until disease progression (up to approximately 4 years) ]
  3. Duration of response (DOR) using RECIST v1.1 [ Time Frame: Initiation of study treatment until disease progression (up to approximately 4 years) ]
  4. Clinical benefit rate (using RECIST v1.1) [ Time Frame: Initiation of study treatment until disease progression (up to approximately 4 years) ]
  5. Progression-free survival (PFS) [ Time Frame: Up to approximately 4 years ]
  6. Overall survival (OS) [ Time Frame: Up to approximately 4 years ]
  7. Percentage of patients for whom vaccine is successfully manufactured and timeframe for vaccine manufacturing [ Time Frame: Study enrollment to initiation of study treatment (up to approximately 6 months) ]
