A Study to Evaluate MIV-818 in Patients With Liver Cancer Manifestations

The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government.

Brief Summary:
This is a multicentre, open-label study to assess safety and tolerability of MIV-818 in patients with various solid tumours that have spread to the liver, or alternatively originating in the liver.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Hepatocellular Carcinoma Intrahepatic Cholangiocarcinoma Liver Metastases Drug: MIV-818 Phase 1 Phase 2

Detailed Description:
This study will be conducted in three phases. The initial phase, 1a, will enroll up to 12 subjects and include a total of one dose escalation per patient. All patients will receive an initial probe dose before entering the actual treatment cycles. Once pre-defined criteria for starting phase 1b has been met among the enrolled patients in phase 1a, the next phase of the study will be initiated. Phase 1b will enroll up to 30 patients in a 3+3 design with interpatient dose escalations. All dose escalation decisions will be made by an independent safety review committee that will meet regularly during the study conduct. As the MTD has been met, the SRC will provide a RP2D which will initiate phase 2a of the study. In phase 2a only HCC and iCCA patients will be recruited into two expansion cohorts.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number of participants with treatment related AEs as assessed by CTCAE v5.0 [ Time Frame: Participants monitored throughout treatment period and during follow-up, up to 2 years ]
    1. Clinically significant changes in laboratory paramaters
    2. Clinically significant changes in ECGs
    3. Clinically significant changes in vital signs; heart rate
    4. c. Clinically significant changes in vital signs; weight in kg
    5. c. Clinically significant changes in vital signs; height in cm

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Preliminary efficacy by means of RECIST evaluation [ Time Frame: Participants monitored throughout treatment period every 6 weeks until disease progression, up to 1 year ]
    1. ORR will be assessed by monitoring tumor response and progression using RECIST v1.1
    2. ORR will be assessed by monitoring tumor response and progression using mRECIST

  9. Must have adequate renal function with estimated creatinine clearance ≥ 60 mL/min (based on Cockcroft and Gault formula or similar) at Screening
  10. Must have platelets ≥ 75,000/mL at Screening.
  11. Must have International Normalized Ratio (INR) ≤ 1.7 at Screening.
  12. Female who is postmenopausal, OR Female who is of childbearing potential (postmenarchal) who agrees to use a highly efficient method of contraception (ie, a method with less than 1% failure rate [eg, sterilization, hormone implants, hormone injections, intrauterine devices, or vasectomized partner or combined birth control pills]) from Screening until 90 days after the final dose of MIV-818.

    Phase 1a and 1b soecific Inclusion Criteria

  14. Must have progressed on or are intolerant of standard therapy with:
