This is a First-in-Human, open-label, sequential dose-escalation and dose-expansion study of KD033 in adult subjects with advanced or metastatic solid tumors. The main purpose of this study is to test KD033 at different dose levels to see if it is safe and well tolerated when given once every 2 weeks. Additional purposes of the study are to find out whether the study drug has anti-cancer effects and how the study drug is processed by the body.

Official Title

A Phase 1, Open-Label, Multiple-Ascending Dose Study to Investigate the Safety, Pharmacokinetics, Pharmacodynamics, and Preliminary Efficacy of KD033 in Subjects With Metastatic or Locally Advanced Solid Tumors.


During the dose escalation phase of the study, cohorts of 3 to 6 subjects with metastatic or locally advanced solid tumors will receive KD033 at escalating dose levels. Upon completion of the dose escalation part of the study, at least 15 subjects will be enrolled in the expansion cohort to further confirm the recommended phase 2 dose.
