A Study to Estimate the Clinical Benefit of REGN2810 for Patients with Advanced Squamous Cell Skin Cancer


About this study

The purpose of this study is to estimate the clinical benefit of REGN2810  for patients who have metastatic (in lymph nodes or distant) squamous cell skin cancer or locally advanced squamous cell skin cancer that cannot be removed with surgery.

Participation eligibility

Participant eligibility includes age, gender, type and stage of disease, and previous treatments or health concerns. Guidelines differ from study to study, and identify who can or cannot participate. There is no guarantee that every individual who qualifies and wants to participate in a trial will be enrolled. Contact the study team to discuss study eligibility and potential participation.

Key Inclusion Criteria:

  • At least 1 measurable lesion
  • Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status ≤1
  • Adequate bone marrow function
  • Adequate renal function
  • Adequate hepatic function
  • Archived or newly obtained tumor material
  • Patients must consent to undergo biopsies of externally visible CSCC lesions (Group 2 only)
  • Surgical or radiological treatment of lesions contraindicated

Key Exclusion Criteria:

  • Ongoing or recent (within 5 years) evidence of significant autoimmune disease that required treatment with systemic immunosuppressive treatments, which may suggest risk for immune-related adverse events
  • Prior treatment with an agent that blocks the PD-1/PD-L1pathway
  • Prior treatment with a BRAF inhibitor
  • Prior treatment with other immune-modulating agents within fewer than 4 weeks prior to the first dose of REGN2810, or associated with immune-mediated adverse events that were ≥ grade 1 within 90 days prior to the first dose of REGN2810, or associated with toxicity that resulted in discontinuation of the immune-modulating agent. Examples of immune-modulating agents include therapeutic vaccines, cytokine treatments, or agents that target cytotoxic T-lymphocyte antigen 4 (CTLA-4), 4-1BB (CD137), or OX-40.
  • Untreated brain metastasis(es) that may be considered active
  • Immunosuppressive corticosteroid doses (>10 mg prednisone daily or equivalent) within 4 weeks prior to the first dose of REGN2810
  • Infection with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and/or chronic/active infection with hepatitis B virus or hepatitis C virus
  • History of pneumonitis within the last 5 years
  • Allergic reactions or acute hypersensitivity reaction attributed to antibody treatments
  • Known allergy to doxycycline or tetracycline
  • Patients with a history of solid organ transplant
  • Any medical co-morbidity, physical examination finding, or metabolic dysfunction, or clinical laboratory abnormality that renders the patient unsuitable
  • Prior treatment with idelalisib
