This clinical trial is studying advanced or metastatic solid tumors. Once a solid tumor has grown very large in one spot or has spread to other places in the body, it is called advanced or metastatic cancer. Participants in this study must have head and neck squamous cell cancer, non-small cell lung cancer, endometrial cancer, or ovarian cancer. Participants must have tumors that have a marker called HER2.

This clinical trial uses an experimental drug called disitamab vedotin (DV). DV is a type of antibody-drug conjugate or ADC. ADCs are designed to stick to cancer cells and kill them. In this study, all participants will get DV once every 2 weeks.

This study is being done to see if DV works to treat different types of solid tumors that express HER2. It will also test how safe the drug is for participants. This trial will also study what side effects happen when participants get the drug. A side effect is anything a drug does to your body besides treating the disease.

    • Prior therapies
      • Must have platinum resistant disease (6 months or less between the completion of platinum-based treatment and identification of recurrence)
      • Must not have received more than 4 lines of prior cytotoxic chemotherapies for advanced disease
      • May have received prior anti-PD(L)1 therapy
  • Cohort 4: Endometrial Cancer
    • Must have pathologically documented adenocarcinoma of the endometrium

      • Must not have received more than 3 lines of prior cytotoxic chemotherapies for advanced disease
      • May have received prior anti-PD(L)1 therapy
  • HER2 expression of 1+, 2+, or 3+, as determined by local IHC testing on a fresh or archival tumor tissue. Note: Participants with HER2 mutations are eligible.
  • Measurable disease per RECIST v1.1 criteria as assessed by the investigator
  • Able to provide formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded (FFPE) tumor tissue blocks (or freshly sectioned slides)

You CAN'T join if...

  • Prior treatment with an MMAE-containing agent.
  • Known hypersensitivity to any excipient contained in the drug formulation of disitamab vedotin.
  • History of another invasive malignancy within 2 years before the first dose of study intervention, or any evidence of residual disease from a previously diagnosed malignancy.
  • Active untreated CNS or leptomeningeal metastasis
