This is an open-label, Phase 1, first-in-human, dose escalation and expansion study designed to assess the safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics and tumor response profile of the anti-Carcinoembryonic-antigen-related-cell-adhesion-molecule-6 (CEACAM6) antibody BAY1834942 in patients with advanced solid tumors known to have a prevalence for CEACAM6 expression. The study consists of dose escalation and tumor type-specific expansion in which BAY1834942 will be administered either alone (monotherapy) or in combination with pembrolizumab (combination therapy).

Official Title

An Open-label, Phase 1, First-in-human, Dose Escalation and Expansion Study to Evaluate the Safety, Tolerability, Pharmacokinetics, Pharmacodynamics and Tumor Response Profile of the Anti-CEACAM6 Antibody BAY1834942 in Patients With Advanced Solid Tumors


The primary objectives of the study are to evaluate and characterize the tolerability and safety profile of repeated doses of BAY1834942 alone or in combination with pembrolizumab, and to characterize the pharmacokinetics of BAY1834942 alone or in combination with pembrolizumab after single dose.

Secondary objectives are to evaluate the tumor response profile, pharmacodynamics and pharmacokinetics after multiple doses of the drug.
