Primary Objective:

Part 1:

  • To characterize the safety and tolerability of SAR442720 in combination with pembrolizumab in patients with advanced solid tumors including NSCLC who progressed on anti-PD-1/PD L1 containing therapy and advanced colorectal cancer (CRC) after progression to all standard of care (SOC) therapy.
  • To define the MTD and RP2D for the combination of SAR442720 and pembrolizumab in patients with solid tumors

Part 2:

  • To determine the antitumor activity of SAR442720 in combination with pembrolizumab

Secondary Objective:

Part 1:

  • To document the pharmacokinetic (PK) of SAR442720 in combination with pembrolizumab and to document the PK of pembrolizumab in combination with SAR442720
  • To estimate the anti-tumor effects of SAR442720 in combination with pembrolizumab in all participants

Part 2:

  • To assess the safety profile of SAR442720 in combination with pembrolizumab
  • To assess other indicators of antitumor activity.
  • To assess the pharmacokinetic (PK) of SAR442720 in combination with pembrolizumab, and to assess the PK of pembrolizumab in combination with SAR442720


This open label Phase 1 multicenter study is designed to evaluate the safety and maximum tolerated dose (MTD) and recommended phase 2 dose (RP2D) of SAR442720 in combination with pembrolizumab in participants with solid tumors in Part 1.

In Part 2, in the expansion cohort (Cohort A) we will assess the antitumor activity and safety of SAR442720 combined with pembrolizumab in participants with metastatic 1L lung cancer.

The expected duration of study intervention for participants may vary, based on progression date; median expected duration of study per participant is estimated to be about 10 months in Part 1 (up to 1 month for screening, a median of 6 months for treatment, and a median of 3 months for long term follow-up) and in Part 2 16 months (up to 1 month for screening, a median of 12 months for treatment and a median of 3 months for long term follow up.)
