Brief Summary:
An open-label, first-in-human, Phase 1 study in adult patients with relapsed advanced malignancies will be done to assess AUR107 safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics, and optimal biological dose.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Relapsed Malignant Solid Neoplasm Drug: AUR107 Phase 1

Detailed Description:
This is a Phase I, Open Label, Dose-Escalation, First-in-Human study in adult patients with select relapsed advanced malignancies. The safety and tolerability of oral AUR107 will be evaluated in patients with selected advanced solid tumors (Non-small cell lung cancer, Gastric cancer, Urothelial cancer, Kidney cancer, Colon cancer, and Esophageal cancer) who do not have any available curative or life-prolonging treatment options and have exhausted all effective locally available therapies. The traditional 3+3 design for dose escalation will be used to evaluate the safety, pharmacokinetics/pharmacodynamics, and determine the Optimal Biological Dose of AUR107 as a single agent. The Optimal Biological Dose will be selected using a totality of safety, PK, and PD data.
