Inclusion Criteria for Cohort A:

  • Disease progression following not more than one prior line of treatment for mCRC that consisted of oxaliplatin or irinotecan containing chemotherapy in combination with a biologic agent.

Inclusion Criteria for Cohort B:

  • Disease progression during or following not more that two separate lines of treatment for mCRC that consisted of oxaliplatin, and irinotecan containing chemotherapy in combination with a biologic agent.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • History of malignancy other than colorectal cancer within 2 years prior to screening, except for malignancies such as non-melanoma skin carcinoma or ductal carcinoma in situ. 
  • Active tuberculosis. 
  • Treatment with therapeutic oral or intravenous (IV) antibiotics within 2 weeks prior to initiating study treatment.
  • Severe infection within 4 weeks (28 days) prior to initiation of study treatment.

  • Evidence of inherited bleeding diathesis or significant coagulopathy at risk of  bleeding (i.e., in the absence of therapeutic anticoagulation).
  • Prior treatment with an agent targeting the adenosine pathway.
  • Active or history of autoimmune disease or immune deficiency, including, but not  limited to, myasthenia gravis, myositis, autoimmune hepatitis, systemic lupus  erythematosus, rheumatoid arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease, antiphospholipid  antibody syndrome, Wegener granulomatosis, Sjögren syndrome, Guillain Barré syndrome, or multiple sclerosis.  

Exclusion Criteria for Cohorts A and B:  

  • Prior treatment with immune checkpoint blockade therapies including anit-cytotoxic T lymphocyte-associated protein-4, anti PD-1, and anti-PD-L1 therapeutic antibodies.
  • Mutation in the BRAF oncogene.
  • Patients with unknown BRAF status will be required to  undergo testing at a local laboratory and provide results at screening.
