OVERVIEW – in layman’s terms (150 words max)
This is a study to determine the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) for CDX-1140 and to further evaluate its safety, tolerability, and efficacy in expansion cohorts once the MTD is determined.

Estimated Completion Date
Inclusion Criteria – Patients Must:
  • Have histologically confirmed diagnosis of one of the following cancers: melanoma (including mucosal and/or ocular), bladder/urothelial, non-small cell lung cancer, pancreatic adenocarcinoma, breast, colorectal, gastric, esophageal, renal cell, hepatic, ovarian, head and neck, and cholangiocarcinoma
  • Have received all standard therapies for the tumor type: 1. Must have had all standard approved and unapproved therapies as deemed appropriate by the treating physician. 2. Patients are not required to have all approved therapies in a drug class (e.g., patients with kidney cancer do not need all tyrosine kinase inhibitors, patients with melanoma do not need all approved checkpoint blockade inhibitors) 3. Patients who refuse standard therapy are excluded from the study
  • Have measurable disease.
  • Life expectancy ≥ 12 weeks.
  • If of childbearing potential (male or female), agrees to practice an effective form of contraception during study treatment and for at least 6 months following last treatment.
  • Be willing to undergo a tumor biopsy prior to treatment.
  • Be willing to undergo a tumor biopsy while on study treatment.
Exclusion Criteria – Patients Must NOT:
  • Have a history of severe hypersensitivity reactions to other monoclonal antibodies.
  • Have previous treatment with any anti-CD40 antibody.
  • Have received any antibody targeting T-cell check point or co-stimulation pathways within 4 weeks, received any other monoclonal antibody within 4 weeks, and all other immunotherapy (tumor vaccine, cytokine, or growth factor) within 2 weeks prior to study treatment.
  • Have chemotherapy within 21 days (6 weeks for nitrosoureas) or at least 5 half-lives (whichever is longer) prior to study treatment.
  • Receive any kinase inhibitors within 2 weeks prior to study treatment.
  • Systemic radiation therapy within 4 weeks, prior focal radiotherapy within 2 weeks, or radiopharmaceuticals (strontium, samarium) within 8 weeksprior to study treatment.
  • Have major surgery within 4 weeks prior to study treatment.
  • Use immunosuppressive medications within 4 weeks or systemic corticosteroids within 2 weeks prior to study treatment.
  • Have other prior malignancy, except for adequately treated basal or squamous cell skin cancer or in situ cancers. For all other cancers, the patient must be disease-free for at least 3 years to be allowed to enroll.
  • Have active, untreated central nervous system metastases.
  • Have active autoimmune disease or documented history of autoimmune disease.
  • Have active infection requiring systemic therapy, known infection of HIV, Hepatitis B, or Hepatitis C.
  • Have significant cardiovascular disease including Congestive Heart Failure or poorly controlled hypertension
  • Pre-treatment biopsy, agree to on-treatment biopsy, and routine labs
