Brief Title: GEN-001 (Live Biotherapeutic Product) and Avelumab Combination Study for Patients With Solid Tumors Who Have Progressed on Anti-PD-(L)1 Therapy

A Phase I/Ib Study to Evaluate the Safety, Tolerability, Biological and Clinical Activities of GEN-001 in Combination With Avelumab in Patients With Advanced Solid Tumors Who Have Progressed During or After Treatment With Anti-PD-(L)1 Therapy


  • Org Study ID: [GNC] GEN001-101
  • Secondary ID: N/A
  • NCT ID: NCT04601402
  • Sponsor: Genome & Company


This is a phase I/Ib, first-in-human (FIH), open-label, dose escalation and dose expansion study to evaluate the safety and tolerability, biological and clinical activities of GEN-001 in patients with locally advanced or metastatic solid tumors who have progressed on at least two lines of approved therapy for their histological subtypes which includes an anti-PD-1 or anti-PD-L1 based therapy (as mono or combination), when administered as combined with avelumab.
