MoST-TAP: This study will explore the effect of immunotherapy in people with locally advanced, solid cancers that cannot be removed by surgery, or have spread to other parts of the bodyA Single Arm, Open-label, Phase II Signal-seeking Trial of Tiragolumab and Atezolizumab in Patients With Advanced Solid Tumours

Clinical summary


Patients who are enroleld in the MoST or CaSP cancer screening programs, or whose tumour is assessed as amenable to the immunotherapies being studied (called Tiragolumab and Atezolizumab) will be recommended for participation in the study. Eligible participants will undergo a 21-day screening period to determien study suitability. Patients will then be selected into subgroups based on their tumour characteristics.

Once eligibility is confirmed, tiragolumab alone will be administered at Cycle 1 Day 1 (day 1 of study). Commencing from Cycle 2 Day 1, tiragolumab and atezolizumab will be administered at 21-day cycles until treatment discontinuation, with or without disease progression.

Participants will undergo a biospy at Cycle 2 prior to commencement of atezolizumab treatment. Standard imaging scans will be performed throughout the trial. Participants will also undergo blood, urine and stool sample collections.

 Once participants discontinue treatment, a study visit is performed within 30 days of the end of the final treatment cycle. If treatment cessation does not coincide with disease progression, follow-up calls will be conducted every 9 weeks until disease progression. Once disease progression occurs, a study visit is performed within 30 days of disease progression and thene very 3 months until 12 months after the final participant discontinues study treatment.
