Description

Summary

Avelumab in combination with talazoparib will be investigated in patients with locally advanced or metastatic solid tumors with a BRCA or ATM defect.

Official Title

A PHASE 2 STUDY TO EVALUATE SAFETY AND ANTI-TUMOR ACTIVITY OF AVELUMAB IN COMBINATION WITH TALAZOPARIB IN PATIENTS WITH BRCA OR ATM MUTANT TUMORS

Details

Avelumab is a human immunoglobulin (Ig)G1 monoclonal antibody (mAb) directed against programmed death ligand 1 (PD-L1). Avelumab selectively binds to PD-L1 and competitively blocks its interaction with programmed death receptor 1 (PD-1), thereby interfering with this key immune checkpoint inhibition pathway. Avelumab is currently being investigated as single agent and in combination with other anti cancer therapies in patients with locally advanced or metastatic solid tumors and various hematological malignancies.

Talazoparib is a potent, orally bioavailable poly (adenosine diphosphate [ADP] ribose) polymerase (PARP) inhibitor, which is cytotoxic to human cancer cell lines harboring gene mutations that compromise deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) repair, an effect referred to as synthetic lethality, and by trapping PARP protein on DNA thereby preventing DNA repair, replication, and transcription.

Avelumab in combination with talazoparib will be investigated in patients with locally advanced (primary or recurrent) or metastatic solid tumors with a BReast CAncer susceptibility gene (BRCA)1, or BRCA2, or ataxia telangiectasia mutated (ATM) gene defect.
