MTL-CEBPA in combination with KEYTRUDA® (Pembrolizumab)
Advanced Solid Tumours
This Phase I/Ib TIMEPOINT study will undertake a dose-escalation followed by a dose expansion investigation. MTL‑CEBPA will be administered as an intravenous infusion once weekly in cycles of three weeks of treatment followed by one week of no treatment. Investigators at the European Society for Medical Oncology (ESMO) 2019 Congress reported that MTL-CEBPA in 39 patients with advanced liver cancer, was found to be well tolerated, showing pharmacodynamic target engagement and a reduction of suppressive immune cells in the tumour microenvironment.
TIMEPOINT is a global Phase I/Ib clinical trial being conducted in patients with solid tumour malignancies. This clinical study will evaluate the safety and tolerability of MTL-CEBPA in combination with KEYTRUDA® (Pembrolizumab) in patients who are ineligible or resistant to standard therapies. In pre-clinical investigations, MTL-CEBPA demonstrated enhanced anti-tumour activity of anti-PD1 checkpoint inhibition by decreasing immune suppression from dysregulated myeloid cells in the tumour microenvironment.
