Precirix begins subject dosing in Phase I/II cancer therapy trial

The trial will analyse CAM-H2’s safety, tumour uptake, retention, and antitumour activity in HER2-positive cancer patients.

Precirix has dosed the first subjects in the Phase I/II clinical trial of its lead therapeutic asset, CAM-H2, to treat human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2)-positive metastatic cancer.

Direct-to-Patient Trials: How IRT Plays an Important Role in Bellerophon's Direct-to-Patient Trials

As the industry strengthens its focus on patient centricity, Direct-to-Patient clinical trials have emerged as a popular trial design that have the potential to increase patient recruitment and retention. IRT plays a crucial role in the success of a Direct-to-Patient trial. Because drug supplies are being managed and shipped from distribution facilities directly to patients’ homes, a sponsor must have a high-quality system in place to accurately track the chain of custody, ensure patient-blinding and handle other logistical challenges.

CAM-H2 includes a single-domain antibody that acts on HER2, covalently linked to iodine-131.

The company noted that single-domain antibodies are well fitted for targeted radiation delivery to tumours based on the size, specificity and pharmacokinetic properties.

The trial will assess the safety, tumour uptake, tumour retention as well as initial signs of antitumour activity of CAM-H2 in patients with HER2-positive metastatic breast and gastric/gastro-oesophageal cancer.

These subjects should have relapsed or are refractory to existing anti-HER2 treatments.

The continuous trial will have two segments.

Phase I dose-escalation trial will identify the recommended dose of the treatment for Phase II trial in 3+3 dose-ascending groups of subjects while Phase II will be a dose-expansion trial.

Precirix noted that the Phase I/II trial will also enrol brain metastases patients and have a total of nearly 70 subjects.

Precirix NV CEO Ruth Devenyns said: “We are very excited to have dosed the first patients in this clinical study, the result of years of thorough scientific research, collaboration, and operational excellence of our entire team and partners.

“We look forward to recruiting additional patients and generating efficacy data to confirm the strong results from our preclinical and first-in-human studies, with the goal of bringing new treatment options to cancer patients.”

HER2 is a validated treatment target and several agent, which act on HER2 are approved.

However, these therapies are not effective against metastatic disease and brain metastases have few therapy options.

No HER2 targeting radiopharmaceuticals are currently authorised for usage and CAM-H2 is the lead asset being developed which uses a single-domain antibody to offer targeted radiation to cancer.

This product also offers a novel mechanism of action in the existing HER2 therapy landscape to address key unmet medical needs, including brain metastases and reduced HER2 expression.

Precirix has a wide pipeline with one asset in a Phase I/II trial while two others are currently in the preclinical stage of development.
