MC# 20-15 - A Phase I First-Time-in-Human, Open-Label Study of GSK6097608 Administered as Monotherapy and in Combination with Anticancer Agents in Participants with Advanced Solid Tumors

  • Agent(s): GSK6097608 & Dostarlimab
  • Disease Type(s): Lung-NSCLC, Squamous Cell Carcinoma of Head and Neck
  • Phase(s): I
  • Drug Classification(s): Monoclonal Antibody
  • Molecular Target(s): PD-1, CD96

Mechanism of Action

  • Dostarlimab, an anti-PD-1 monoclonal antibody, binds to and inhibits PD-1 and its downstream signaling pathways.
  • GSK6097608 is a monoclonal antibody that inhibits CD96.


In this study, the sponsor and investigators want to learn:

  • About the safety and tolerability of GSK6097608 alone and in combination with dostarlimab
  • How proteins that indicate the status of your disease are affected with use of GSK6097608 alone and in combination with dostarlimab
  • If GSK6097608 alone or in combination with dostarlimab prevents or delays tumor growth or shrinks existing tumors
  • How quickly GSK6097608 and dostarlimab are removed from your bloodstream
  • If research tests can be used in the future to predict who will benefit from GSK6097608 and dostarlimab
Inclusion Criteria
  1. Provide signed informed consent.  Participant must be capable of providing informed consent, which includes compliance with the requirements and restrictions listed in the informed consent form (ICF) and in this protocol.
  2. Male or female participants ≥18 years of age at the time of signing the ICF
    • A female participant is eligible to participate if she is not pregnant or breastfeeding, and at least 1 of the following conditions applies:
      • Is not a woman of childbearing potential (WOCBP) OR
      • Is a WOCBP and using a contraceptive method that is highly effective with a failure rate of <1% per year during the intervention period and for at least 15 weeks after the last dose of GSK6097608 or 150 days after the last dose of dostarlimab, corresponding to time needed to eliminate study interventions (ie, at least 5 terminal half-lives).  The investigator should evaluate the effectiveness of the contraceptive method in relationship to the first dose of study intervention.
      • A WOCBP must have a negative serum pregnancy test within 7 days before the first dose of study intervention
    • The investigator is responsible for review of medical history, menstrual history, and recent sexual activity to decrease the risk for inclusion of a woman with an early undetected pregnancy
  3. Histological or cytological documentation of locally advanced, recurrent, or metastatic solid malignancy
    • Participants in PK/PD cohorts must have histologically or cytologically confirmed diagnosis of one of the following: NSCLC, HNSCC, or an alternative immunogenic tumor type with medical monitor approval
  4. Disease that has progressed after standard therapy for the specific tumor type, or for which standard therapy has proven to be ineffective, intolerable, or is considered inappropriate, or if no further standard therapy exists
    • Participants whose cancers harbor molecular alterations for which targeted therapy is standard of care should have received local health authority-approved appropriate targeted therapy for their tumor type(s) prior to enrollment
    • Participants in the PK/PD cohorts with NSCLC must have received a platinum- containing chemotherapy regimen and an anti-PD(L)1 mAb-containing regimen
  5. Excepting cases in which biopsy requirements are waived by the medical monitor due to safety considerations, participants must provide a tumor biopsy during the Screening period from a tumor lesion not previously irradiated and agree to an additional on-treatment biopsy approximately 6 weeks after first dose of study intervention.  (Note: The biopsy must be collected from a tumor lesion not previously irradiated and tumor lesions planned for biopsy must not be followed as target lesions for disease assessment.  Participants with only 1 target lesion that is also the only lesion available for biopsy are not eligible unless biopsy requirements are waived by the medical monitor.)
  6. Measurable disease per RECIST 1.1
  7. Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status (PS) 0-1
