Detailed Description

Enfortumab vedotin is an antibody-drug conjugate that delivers the microtubule-disrupting agent monomethyl auristatin E (MMAE) to cells expressing Nectin-4. Enfortumab vedotin is FDA approved for bladder cancer.

    2. Duration of Response (DOR) [approximately 2 years]

      To determine anti-tumor activity by duration of response (DOR)

    3. Disease Control Rate (DCR) [approximately 2 years]

      To determine anti-tumor activity by disease control rate (DCR)

    4. Progression Free Survival (PFS) [Every 8 weeks until disease progression or subsequent therapy assessed up to 2 years]

      To determine progression free survival (PFS)

    5. Overall Survival (OS) [Every 3 months for 12 months after End of Treatment]

      To determine overall survival (OS)

    Inclusion Criteria:
    1. Ability of participant OR Legally Authorized Representative (LAR) to understand this study, and participant or LAR willingness to sign a written informed consent

    6. Women of childbearing potential must have a negative urine or serum pregnancy test 7 days prior to initiating treatment.

    7. Adequate archival tissue from prior biopsy for biomarker evaluation or willingness to undergo tissue biopsy before treatment starts and on treatment. Patients who, in the opinion of the investigator, do not have tissue that can be safely biopsied are excepted.

    8. Absolute Neutrophil Count >1.5K/UL NOTE: Patients with established diagnosis of benign neutropenia are eligible to participate with ANC between 1000-1500 if in the opinion of treating physician the trial treatment does not pose excessive risk of infection to the patient.

    10. Hemoglobin ≥ 9 g/dL

    11. Serum creatinine ≤ 1.5 x upper limit of normal (ULN) or calculated creatinine clearance ≥ 50 mL/min using the Cockcroft-Gault equation

    12. Total bilirubin ≤ 1.5 x ULN OR direct bilirubin ≤ 1 x ULN

    13. Aspartate aminotransferase and alanine aminotransferase ≤ 2.5 x ULN unless liver metastases are present, in which case they must be ≤ 5 x ULN

    • Females: at least 2 months after the last dose of the study medication.

    • Males: at least 4 months after the last dose of the study medication.

    7. Active central nervous system (CNS) metastases. Patients with treated CNS metastases are permitted on study if all the following are true:

    8. CNS metastases have been clinically stable for at least 6 weeks prior to screening and baseline scans show no evidence of new or enlarged metastasis.

Examples of live vaccines include, but are not limited to, the following: measles, mumps, rubella, varicella/zoster (chicken pox), yellow fever, rabies, BCG, and typhoid vaccine. Seasonal influenza vaccines for injection are generally killed virus vaccines and are allowed; however, intranasal influenza vaccines (e.g., FluMist®) are live attenuated vaccines and are not allowed.
