Brief Summary:
This study is being done to find out if zanidatamab when given with evorpacept (ALX148) is safe and can treat patients with advanced (locally advanced [inoperable] and/or metastatic) human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2)-expressing cancer.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
HER2-expressing Cancers Drug: Zanidatamab Drug: Evorpacept Phase 1 Phase 2

Expanded Access : An investigational treatment associated with this study is available outside the clinical trial.   More info ...

Detailed Description:
Part 1 of the study will first evaluate the safety and tolerability and establish the recommended doses (RDs) of zanidatamab in combination with evorpacept (ALX148). Part 2 of the study will evaluate the anti-tumor activity of the combination of zanidatamab plus evorpacept (ALX148) at the RD levels in indication-specific expansion cohorts.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Disease control rate (DCR)(Part 2) [ Time Frame: Up to 2 years ]

  2. Clinical benefit rate (CBR)(Part 2) [ Time Frame: Up to 2 years ]
    Number of patients who achieved a SD for ≥ 24 weeks or a confirmed BOR of CR or PR during treatment per RECIST 1.1

  3. Duration of response (DOR)(Part 2) [ Time Frame: Up to 2 years ]
    The time from the first objective response (CR or PR) to documented progressive disease per RECIST 1.1, clinical progression, or death within 30 days of last dose of study drug (zanidatamab and/or evorpacept [ALX148]) from any cause

  4. Progression-free survival (PFS)(Part 2) [ Time Frame: Up to 2 years ]
    The time from the first dose of study treatment to the date of documented disease progression (per RECIST 1.1), clinical progression, or death from any cause

  5. Progression-free survival 6 (PFS6)(Part 2) [ Time Frame: Up to 6 months ]
    Number of patients with a PFS time ≥ 24 weeks

  6. Overall survival (OS)(Part 2) [ Time Frame: Up to 2 years ]
    The time from first dose of study treatment until death from any cause

  7. Incidence of AEs (Part 2) [ Time Frame: Up to 7 months ]
    Number of patients who experienced AEs, SAEs, or AESIs

  8. Incidence of clinical laboratory abnormalities (Part 2) [ Time Frame: Up to 7 months ]
    Number of patients who experienced a maximum severity of Grade 3 or higher post-baseline laboratory abnormality, including either hematology or chemistry. Grades are defined using NCI-CTCAE, version 5.0

  9. Maximum serum concentration of zanidatamab and evorpacept (ALX148) (Part 2) [ Time Frame: Up to 7 months ]
  10. Trough concentration of zanidatamab and evorpacept (ALX148) (Part 2) [ Time Frame: Up to 7 months ]
    Minimum observed serum concentration (trough)

  11. Incidence of anti-drug antibodies (ADAs)(Part 2) [ Time Frame: Up to 7 months ]
    Number of patients who develop ADAs
