This study is seeking to determine how safe, tolerable, and what the recommended doses are of a new cancer drug (called BMS-986340) when given alone, and in combination with immunotherapy or chemotherapy, in people with advanced solid cancersA Phase 1/2 Study of BMS-986340 as Monotherapy and in Combination With Nivolumab or Docetaxel in Participants With Advanced Solid Tumors

Clinical summary


This study has two stages: dose escalation and dose expansion. In the dose escalation phase, there are three cohorts. In Cohort 1A, participants will receive the investigational drug (called BMS-986340) in escalating doses. In Cohort 1B, participants will receive BMS-986340 in escalating doses plus immunotherapy (called nivolumab). In Cohort 1C, participants will receive BMS-986340 in escalating doses plus chemotherapy (called docetaxel). In the dose expansion phase, there are two cohorts. In Cohort 2A, participants will receive BMS-986340 alone. In Cohort 2B, participants will receive BMS-986340 plus nivolumab. All treatments will be administered via intravenous infusion (IV).


This trial is treating patients with advanced solid cancers, including: cervical cancer, stomach cancer, cancer of the gastro-oesophageal junction, bowel cancer, non-small cell lung cancer, squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck, renal cell carcinoma, urothelial carcinoma, pancreatic cancer, melanoma, ovarian cancer, and triple negative breast cancer
