This study will evaluate the safety, tolerability and preliminary efficacy and also pharmacokinetics, immunogenicity and other pharmacodynamic effects to elucidate the mechanism of action of NG-350A, either alone or in combination with a check point inhibitor, in patients with advanced or metastatic epithelial tumours.

Official Title

A Multicentre, Open Label, Non-randomised First in Human Study of NG-350A (Monotherapy), and NG-350A With a Check Point Inhibitor in Patients With Metastatic or Advanced Epithelial Tumours


Phase Ia of this study is a dose escalation phase, investigating NG-350A administration by intravenous (IV) infusion, either alone or in combination with a check point inhibitor. Phase Ib of this study comprises of a Combination Dose Efficacy Expansion with NG-350A in combination with a check point inhibitor.

  1. Prior or planned allogeneic or autologous bone marrow or organ transplantation
  2. Splenectomy
  3. Active infections requiring antibiotics, physician monitoring or systemic therapy within 1 week of the anticipated first dose of study drug, or recurrent fevers (>38.0˚C) associated with a clinical diagnosis of active infection

  5. Patients who have active autoimmune disease that has required systemic therapy in the past 2 years, are immunocompromised in the opinion of the Investigator, or are receiving systemic immunosuppressive treatment
  6. Patients with vitiligo, type I diabetes mellitus, asthma/atopy, residual hypothyroidism due to autoimmune disease (which only requires hormone replacement therapy), or conditions not expected to recur in the absence of an external trigger are permitted to enrol providing they comply with the other eligibility criteria relating to renal function. Use of inhaled corticosteroids, local steroid injection, or steroid eye drops is allowed
  7. Treatment with any live, live attenuated or COVID-19 vaccine in the 28 days before the first dose of NG 350A

  17. . Tumour location/extent considered by the Investigator to present a significant risk if tumour flare or necrosis were to occur (e.g. an initial increase in tumour size that may lead to intestinal, airway or ureter obstruction, or penetrating tumour infiltration of major blood vessels, or other hollow organs potentially at risk of perforation)
  18. . Use of the following prior therapies/treatments:
  19. Treatment with any other anti CD40 antibody at any time

  27. . Other prior malignancy active within the previous 3 years, except for local or organ confined early-stage cancer that has been definitively treated with curative intent, does not require ongoing treatment, has no evidence of residual disease and has a negligible risk of recurrence and is therefore unlikely to interfere with the primary and secondary endpoints of the study, including response rate and safety
  28. . Symptomatic brain metastases or any leptomeningeal metastases that are symptomatic and/or require treatment. Patients with brain metastases are eligible if these have been treated (surgery, radiotherapy). Both surgery and or radiotherapy must have been completed at least 2 weeks before first dose of study treatment.
