This is a nonrandomized, uncontrolled, open-label, multicenter Phase 2 study to evaluate the efficacy, safety, and tolerability of futibatinib in combination with PD-1 antibody-based SoC therapy in adult patients with solid tumors.

Official Title

A Phase 2 Study of Futibatinib in Combination With PD-1 Antibody-based Standard of Care Therapy in Patients With Solid Tumors.


Patients with locally advanced, unresectable or metastatic esophageal cancer (EC) or pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) will receive futibatinib in combination with pembrolizumab plus standard of care (SOC) chemotherapy. Patients with EC will receive Investigator choice of chemotherapy (FP or mFOLFOX6), patients with PDAC will receive mFOLFIRINOX. The study will begin with a safety lead-in period (Part 1), in which up to 18 patients (Cohort A = up to12, Cohort B = 6 ) will be enrolled. In Part 2, up to 54 patients (Cohort A = up to 20, Cohort B = 34) will be enrolled and treated with the same treatment regimens.
