MC# 16-31 - Study Title: A Phase 1 Multicenter, Open-label, Dose-escalation and Dose-expansion Study to Evaluate the Safety, Tolerability, Pharmacokinetics, Immunogenicity, and Antitumor Activity of MEDI9447 Alone and in Combination with MEDI4736 in Adult Subjects with Select Advanced Solid Tumors

  • Agent(s): MEDI9447, MEDI4736 (Durvalumab)
  • Disease Type(s): Lung-NSCLC
  • Phase(s): I
  • Drug Classification(s): Immunotherapy, Monoclonal Antibody, Targeted Therapy
  • Molecular Target(s): PD-L1 (CD274), CD73

Mechanism of Action

  • Durvalumab (MEDI4736) is a humanized monoclonal antibody targeting PD-L1, which is a transmembrane protein on dendritic cells that when engaged with the PD-1 receptor on T-cells delivers an inhibitory signal that promotes T-cell anergy/apoptosis.  
  • MEDI9447 is a human immunoglobulin G1 lambda (IgG1λ) monoclonal antibody that selectively binds to CD73 (expressed on the surface of various immune and tumor cells) and inhibits the catalysis of AMP to adenosine and organic phosphate.  Extracellular adenosine is believed to mediate cellular immunosuppressive effects.  Blocking CD73 may improve antitumor immunity.


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

  • how much MEDI9447, when given with Durvalumab, can be given with an acceptable level of side effects
  • the effects of the combination of MEDI9447 and Durvalumab
  • how much of MEDI9447 and Durvalumab are absorbed into the blood and how fast they are cleared from the body
  • if research tests can predict who will benefit from MEDI9447 when given with Durvalumab
  • if MEDI9447, when given with Durvalumab, prevents or delays tumor growth or shrinks an existing tumor
  • how proteins that indicate the status of your disease are affected with use of MEDI9447 when given with Durvalumab
  • if your body develops proteins that work against MEDI9447 and/or Durvalumab

  • Female subjects of childbearing potential who are sexually active with a non-sterilized male partner must use at least one highly effective method of contraception from the time of screening, and must agree to continue using such precautions for 90 days (or 180 days) after the final dose of investigational product.
  • Nonsterilized males who are sexually active with a female partner of childbearing potential must use condom plus spermicide from Day 1 through 90 days (or 180 days) after receipt of the last dose of investigational product
Exclusion Criteria
  • Prior treatment with tumor necrosis factor receptor superfamily agonists including OX40, CD27, CD137 (4-1BB), CD357 (GITR).
  • Subjects who have received prior therapy with regimens containing CTLA-4, PD-L1, or PD-1 antagonists are NOT permitted to enroll unless all of the following apply:
  • Dose of immunotherapy must have been administered at least 28 days or 5 half lives, whichever is shorter, prior to planned first dose of MEDI9447/MEDI4736
  • Must not have experienced a toxicity that led to permanent discontinuation of prior immunotherapy
  • All AEs while receiving prior immunotherapy must have resolved to ≤ Grade 1 or baseline prior to screening for this study
  • Must not have required the use of additional immunosuppression other than corticosteroids for the management of an AE, not have experienced recurrence of an AE if re-challenged, and not currently require maintenance doses of > 10 mg prednisone or equivalent per day
  • Known allergy or hypersensitivity to investigational product formulations
  • History of more than one event of IRR requiring permanent discontinuation of IV drug treatment
  • History of severe drug allergies or anaphylaxis to 2 or more food products or medicine (including known sensitivity to acetaminophen/paracetamol, diphenhydramine or equivalent antihistamine, and methylprednisolone or equivalent glucocorticoid)
  • Cardiac or peripheral vascular disease meeting any of the following criteria:
  • Past history of myocardial infarction in the prior 12 months
  • Past history of stroke or transient ischemic attack requiring medical therapy
  • Congestive heart failure ≥ Class 3 based on New York Heart Association Functional Classification
  • Grade 3 or greater edema (eg, peripheral, pulmonary)
  • History of Grade 3 or greater thromboembolic events in the prior 12 months or unresolved thromboembolic event of any grade
  • Subjects with active tuberculosis are ineligible. In settings where there is clinical or radiographic evidence of tuberculosis, active disease must be ruled out
  • Active or prior documented autoimmune disorders (including inflammatory bowel disease [eg, colitis, Crohn's disease], celiac disease, or other serious gastrointestinal chronic conditions associated with diarrhea, etc) within the past 3 years prior to the start of treatment. The following are exceptions to this criterion are subjects s with vitiligo or alopecia or hypothyroidism.
