OVERVIEW – in layman’s terms (150 words max)
CRESTONE is an open label, multicenter ph 2 trial of seribantumab in adult patients with NRG1 fusion-positive locally advanced or metastatic solid tumors who have progressed on or are nonresponsive to treatment. The trial will enroll previously treated patients across three cohorts no matter what prior treatments have been received.
Study Start Date
Estimated Completion Date
6/30/2023 (active, no longer recruiting as of 2/14/23)
Purpose of the Study – in Layman’s Terms (use the “+” to add more list items)
  • The primary objective of this study is to determine the overall objective response rate (ORR) by independent review to single agent seribantumab in patients with NRG1 gene fusion positive advanced cancer according to RECIST 1.1
Inclusion Criteria – Patients Must:
  • NRG1 gene fusion from biomarker test: Locally-advanced or metastatic solid tumor with an NRG1 gene fusion identified through molecular assays, such as PCR, NGS (RNA or DNA) or FISH, by a CLIA-certified or similarly accredited laboratory
  • Patients should have received a minimum of one prior standard therapy appropriate for their tumor type and stage of disease, progressed or been nonresponsive to these available therapies, with no further available curative therapy options
  • Patients must have at least one measurable extra-cranial lesion as defined by RECIST v1.1
Exclusion Criteria – Patients Must NOT:
  • Known, actionable oncogenic driver mutation other than NRG1 fusion where available standard therapy is indicated
  • Symptomatic or untreated brain metastases (Note: Patients with asymptomatic brain metastases treated with radiation or surgery and without evidence of progression by imaging at screening are eligible to participate in the study. Patients requiring ongoing corticosteroids to treat brain metastases will not be eligible).
  • Biomarker testing from a CLIA approved lab that identifies the tumor has a NRG1 gene fusion
POTENTIAL SIDE-EFFECTS – in layman’s terms
  • Fatigue, Nausea, Diarrhea, Rash
