MC# 23-17 - A Phase I Study Evaluating the Safety, Tolerability, and Efficacy of BL-B01D1 in Subjects with Metastatic or Unresectable Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer

  • Agent(s): BL-B01D1
  • Disease Type(s): Lung-NSCLC
  • Phase(s): I
  • Drug Classification(s): Cytotoxic Therapy, Targeted Therapy, Antibody Drug Conjugate, Bispecific Antibodies
  • Molecular Target(s): EGFR, HER3

Mechanism of Action

EGFR x HER3 bispecific antibody-drug conjugate


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

  • How much of BL-B01D1 can be given with an acceptable level of side effects
  • The effects of BL-B01D1 (good and bad)
  • How much of BL-B01D1 is absorbed into the blood and how fast it is removed
Inclusion Criteria
  • Signed the informed consent voluntarily and agreed to follow the program requirements
  • Either sex
  • Age: ≥18 years
  • Has a life expectancy of ≥3 months
  • Has documented locally advanced or metastatic NSCLC, not amenable to curative surgery or radiation with documentation of radiological disease progression while on/after receiving most recent treatment regimen for locally advanced or metastatic disease.
  • Subjects without AGA: Must have documented negative test results for epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) and anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK). Must have no known genomic alterations in ROS proto-oncogene 1 (ROS1), neurotrophic tyrosine receptor kinase (NTRK), proto-oncogene Braf (BRAF), mesenchymal-epithelial transition (MET) exon 14 skipping, or rearranged during transfection (RET) and Kirsten rat sarcoma viral oncogene homolog mutations (KRAS)
    • Received and refractory to at least one platinum-based chemotherapy with α-PD-1/L1 monoclonal antibody given either concurrently or in separate lines of therapy. Includes subjects who received prior platinum-based chemotherapy with or without radiotherapy with maintenance α-PD-1/L1 monoclonal antibody for Stage 3 disease and relapsed /progressed within 6 months from the last dose of platinum-based chemotherapy. Includes subjects who received prior platinum-based chemotherapy with or without radiotherapy (with or without maintenance α-PD-1/L1 monoclonal antibody) for Stage 3 disease and subsequently received α-PD-1/L1 monoclonal antibody therapy (with or without platinum-based chemotherapy) for recurrent disease. Received platinum-based chemotherapy and α-PD-1/L1 monoclonal antibody (in either order) sequentially.
  • Subjects with AGA must have one or more documented actionable genomic alteration(s): EGFR, ALK, ROS1, NTRK, BRAF, KRAS, MET exon 14 skipping, or RET and must meet the following for advanced or metastatic NSCLC:
    • Subjects must have been treated and refractory with 1 or more prior lines of applicable targeted therapy that is locally approved for the participant's genomic alteration at the time of screening; subjects who have tumors with EGFR L858R or Exon 19 deletion mutations must have received and be considered refractory to prior Osimertinib therapy. Those who received a targeted agent as adjuvant therapy for early-stage disease must have relapsed or progressed while on the treatment or within 6 months of the last dose OR received at least one additional course of targeted therapy for the same genomic alteration (which may or may not be same agent used in the adjuvant setting) for relapsed/progressive disease. Subjects who have been treated and refractory to a prior TKI must receive additional approved targeted therapy, if locally available and clinically appropriate, for the applicable genomic alteration.
    • Subjects with ROS1, NTRK, BRAF, KRAS, MET exon 14 skipping, or RET must have received and be refractory to or ineligible for at least one platinum-based chemotherapy. For subjects with EGFR or ALK prior treatment with platinum-based chemotherapy is considered optional. Those who received a platinum-containing regimen as adjuvant therapy for early-stage disease must have relapsed or progressed while on the treatment or within 6 months of the last dose OR received at least one additional course of platinum-containing therapy (which may or may not be same as in the adjuvant setting) for relapsed/progressive disease and may have received and be refractory to one or more α-PD-1/L1 monoclonal antibody alone or in combination with a cytotoxic agent.

  • Has at least one measurable lesion based on RECIST V1.1
  • Has an Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group performance status (ECOG PS) 0 to 1
  • Toxicity of previous antitumor therapy has returned to level ≤1 as defined by NCI-CTCAE V5.0 (except for asymptomatic laboratory abnormalities such as elevated ALP, hyperuricemia, elevated serum amylase/lipase, and elevated blood glucose; except for toxicity that the investigator determined to have no safety risk, such as alopecia, grade 2 peripheral neurotoxicity, hypothyroidism stabilized by hormone replacement therapy, etc.)
