KEYNOTE-D78: This study is testing whether a targeted therapy (called disitamab vedotin) alone, or when given with immunotherapy, works to treat HER2 expressing urothelial cancerA Phase 2 Multi-Cohort, Open-Label, Multi-Center Clinical Study Evaluating the Efficacy and Safety of Disitamab Vedotin (RC48-ADC) Alone or in Combination With Pembrolizumab in Subjects With Locally-Advanced Unresectable or Metastatic Urothelial Carcinoma That Expresses HER2

Clinical summary

Summary

This study is being done to see if a drug called disitamab vedotin, alone or with immunotherapy (called pembrolizumab), works to treat HER2 expressing urothelial cancer. It will also test how safe the drug is for participants.

Participants will have cancer that has spread in the body near where it started (locally advanced) and cannot be removed (unresectable) or has spread through the body (metastatic).

It will also study what side effects happen when participants get the drug. A side effect is anything a drug does to your body besides treating the disease.

Cohort C

  • Histopathologically-confirmed LA/mUC, including UC originating from the renal pelvis, ureters, bladder, or urethra
  • No prior systemic therapy for LA/mUC

    • Neoadjuvant or adjuvant therapy, including PD-(L)1 inhibitors, is acceptable, if disease recurrence/progression occurred more than 12 months after the last dose of systemic therapy
  • At least one measurable lesion by investigator assessment based on RECIST v1.1.
  • Participant is eligible to receive cisplatin- or carboplatin- containing chemotherapy per investigator evaluation
  • HER2-expression status determined by the central laboratory to be IHC 1+, 2+ or 3+, on the provided tumor tissue sample

    • a. One prior line of platinum-containing chemotherapy.
    • b. Prior therapy with PD-(L)1 inhibitors as (neo)adjuvant therapy, first-line maintenance therapy or as second line treatment.
    • c. Prior enfortumab vedotin therapy.
  • At least one measurable lesion by investigator assessment based on RECIST v1.1.

Cohort E

  • Histopathologically-confirmed LA/mUC, including UC originating from the renal pelvis, ureters, bladder, or urethra
  • No prior systemic therapy for LA/mUC

    • Neoadjuvant or adjuvant therapy, including PD-(L)1 inhibitors, is acceptable, if disease recurrence/progression occurred more than 12 months after the last dose of systemic therapy.
  • At least one measurable lesion by investigator assessment based on RECIST v1.1.
  • Participant is eligible to receive cisplatin- or carboplatin- containing chemotherapy per investigator evaluation
