This study is evaluating how safe, tolerable and effective a new targeted therapy (called ES009) is in people with advanced solid cancersAn Open-Label, Multicenter, First-in-Human, Phase 1 Study of ES009 in Subjects With Locally Advanced or Metastatic Solid Tumors

Clinical summary


Eligible participants will be assigned to receive the study drug (ES009) as monotherapy in escalating doses, with the aim of determining the maximum tolerated dose (MTD), maximum administered dose (MAD), optimal biological dose (OBD), and recommended phase 2 dose (RP2D). ES009 will be administered via intravenous infusion once every 21 days.
