Phase 1/2 Nivolumab + Plinabulin in NSCLC
* Data presented at 2018 ASCO-SITC Clinical Immuno-Oncology Symposium
The Phase 1/2 trial of Plinabulin with Nivolumab in patients with non-small lung cancer will evaluate the combination.
Animal studies provide indications of an immune MOA, which primarily acts through activation and proliferation of tumor antigen-specific CD4 T-cells, a white blood cell active in immune responses.
Study BPI-2358-201, in collaboration with UCSD: with Nivolumab (240 mg) and Plinabulin (20 and 30 mg/m2) administered on days 1 and 14 of each 28 day cycle.
Study BPI-2358-202, in collaboration with Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center: with Nivolumab (3 mg/kg on day 1 and 14) and Plinabulin (13.5, 20, 30 or 40 mg/m2) on day 1, 8 and 15) administered in 28 day cycles.
