Clinical trials are an important way to improve treatment for people with cancer. While most are continuing during the COVID-19 pandemic, the period of time that clinical trials are available and recruiting may change quickly. If you would like to get involved in a clinical trial, speak to your treatment team or the health service where the clinical trial is being undertaken, to confirm it is open and appropriate for you. For cancer information and support, call Cancer Council's experienced cancer nurses on 13 11 20 Monday to Friday from 9am-5pm.

This is a systemic therapy trial.

There will be two parts to this study: a phase I, dose escalation part followed by a phase II part. Dose escalation will be conducted in people with metastatic uveal melanoma (MUM) and other melanomas with GNAQ/11 mutations. Once the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) and/or recommended doses (RD) is determined in the dose escalation part, the study may continue with a phase II part. The phase II part will be conducted in two groups of participants with MUM, a group that has received prior treatment with tebentafusp, and a group that has not received prior treatment with tebentafusp. In addition to MUM, a third group of participants with a non-uveal GNAQ/11 mutant melanomas may also be explored. This cohort may be opened based on emerging data from teh dose escalation part of the study.
