Brief Summary:

This is a multicentre, open label, two-part study to determine whether the focal adhesion kinase (FAK) inhibitor AMP945, when given prior to dosing with gemcitabine and nab-paclitaxel, improves response to therapy in first-line patients with unresectable or metastatic pancreatic cancer.

Part A is a phase 1b dose-escalation design that will enrol at least 3 participants in each of 4 dose-level cohorts, to determine the RP2D of AMP945 to be explored in Part B.

Part B will determine the efficacy of the AMP945 regimen at the RP2D, and will be run as a Simon Two-stage design; Stage 1 will enrol 26 participants. If ≤5 of the 26 participants show an objective response, then recruitment will be paused and a detailed analysis of futility will be performed. If the study is deemed futile, recruitment will cease. If the study is determined to be not futile or >5 of the 26 participants show an objective response, recruitment will continue, and an additional 24 participants will be enrolled in Stage 2.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: AMP945
Part A: AMP945 administered in dose escalating cohorts Part B: AMP945 recommended phase 2 dose
Drug: AMP945 ascending doses
Part A is a phase 1b dose-escalation design that will enrol at least 3 participants in each of 4 dose-level cohorts, to determine the RP2D of AMP945 to be explored in Part B. Dose escalation decisions will be made using a standard 3+3 dose-escalation phase 1 oncology study design.

Drug: AMP945 RP2D
Part B will determine the efficacy of the AMP945 priming regimen at the recommended phase 2 dose (RP2D) determined in Part A.

    Time to progression, defined as time from first dosing to date of first observed progression, based on RECIST
