Brief Summary:
This is an open-label, multicenter, Phase 1, ascending dose escalation study of PSB205 in subjects with advanced solid tumors. The study will be conducted in 2 parts. Part 1 of the study will be a dose escalation evaluation to determine the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) and to establish a recommended Phase 2 dose (RP2D) of PSB205. This study purpose is to describe the safety and tolerability, to assess Pharmacokinetics (PK) and immunogenicity, and to preliminarily assess the anti-tumor activity of PSB205 in subjects with solid tumors. Part 2 of the study will further evaluate the RP2D in 3 distinct tumor cohorts of approximately 12 subjects each.

Allocation: N/A
Intervention Model: Sequential Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Phase 1, Open-Label, Dose Escalation and Expansion Study to Evaluate the Safety, Tolerability, Pharmacokinetics and Preliminary Anti-tumor Activity of PSB205 in Patients With Relapsed/Refractory Solid Tumors
Actual Study Start Date : July 5, 2019
Estimated Primary Completion Date : February 28, 2021
Estimated Study Completion Date : July 28, 2021

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Open-label Dose Escalation and Expansion Study of PSB205

Part 1 (Dose escalation): PSB205 will be administered in sequential cohorts of 3 to 6 subjects each receiving 1 of 5 doses of PSB205 on day 1 of every 21-day cycle (3 weeks) via IV infusion using a standard 3+3 dose escalation design. Dose escalation will continue until an MTD is reached.

Part 2 (Dose Expansion): The clinical anti-tumor effects of PSB205 will be tested at the recommended Phase 2 dose (RP2D) determined during the dose-escalation phase in subjects from three different solid tumor cohorts.

Biological: PSB205
PSB205 is a bi-functional product that has been engineered to contain two unique monoclonal antibodies.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Safety and tolerability [ Time Frame: 28 days ]
    Safety and tolerability, as defined by the rate of treatment-related adverse events as assessed by NCI CTCAE v5.0.
