Résumé : Purpose: The purpose of this study was to evaluate safety, pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics, and preliminary antitumor efficacy of ARGX-110, a glyco-engineered monoclonal antibody, targeting CD70, in patients with CD70 expressing advanced malignancies. Experimental Design: Dose escalation with a sequential 3þ3 design was performed in five steps at the 0.1, 1, 2, 5, and 10 mg/kg dose levels (N ¼ 26). ARGX-110 was administered intravenously every 3 weeks until progression or intolerable toxicity. Dose-limiting toxicity was evaluated in the 21 days following the first ARGX-110 administration (Cycle 1). Samples for pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics were collected. Results: Dose-limiting toxicity was not observed and the maximum tolerated dose was not reached. ARGX-110 was generally well tolerated, with no dose-related increase in treatment-emergent adverse events (TEAE). The most common TEAE were fatigue and drug related infusion-related reactions (IRR). Of the 20 SAEs reported, five events, all IRRs, were considered related to ARGX-110. ARGX-110 demonstrates dose proportionality over the dose range 1 to 10 mg/kg, but not at 0.1 mg/kg and a terminal half-life of 10 to 13 days. The best overall response was stable disease (14/26) in all 26 evaluable patients with various malignancies and the mean duration of treatment was 15 weeks. No dose–response related antitumor activity was observed, but biomarker readouts provided signs of biological activity, particularly in patients with hematologic malignancies. Conclusions: This dose-escalation phase I trial provides evidence of good tolerability of ARGX-110, pharmacokinetics, and preliminary antitumor activity at all dose levels in generally heavily pretreated patients with advanced CD70-positive malignancies.
