Summary

The main aim of this study is to check if people with advanced solid tumors have side effects from TAK-676, and to check how much TAK-676 they can receive without getting significant side effects from it when given alone and in combination with pembrolizumab. The study will be conducted in two phases including a dose escalation phase and a dose expansion phase. In the dose escalation phase, escalating doses of TAK-676 are being tested alone and in combination with pembrolizumab to treat participants who have advanced or metastatic solid tumors. In the dose expansion phase, TAK-676 will be studied with pembrolizumab with or without chemotherapy in participants with untreated metastatic or recurrent, unresectable squamous cell carcinoma of head and neck (SCCHN) and in combination with pembrolizumab in third-line or later recurrent locally advanced or metastatic microsatellite instability-high /mismatch repair deficient (MSI-H/dMMR) and third-line recurrent locally advanced or metastatic microsatellite stable/mismatch repair proficient (MSS/pMMR) colorectal cancer (CRC).

Description

The drug being tested in this study is called TAK-676. TAK-676 is being tested to treat people who have advanced or metastatic solid tumors.

The study will enroll approximately 288 participants. Part 1 consists of an initial Safety Lead-in to Dose Escalation Phase; Part 2 and Part 3 compose the Expansion Phase in 2 specific indications namely, previously untreated metastatic or recurrent, unresectable SCCHN (Part 2) and third-line or later recurrent locally advanced or metastatic MSI-H/dMMR and third-line recurrent locally advanced or metastatic MSS/pMMR CRC (Part 3). Participants will be assigned to the following treatment groups in the respective Phases of the study:

  • Part 1 (Dose Escalation Phase): Safety Lead-in + TAK-676 SA [Part 1A] TAK-676 0.1 milligram (mg) in the Safety Lead-in followed by TAK-676 as escalating doses (0.2 mg and above) in Part 1A.
  • Part 1B (Combination Dose Escalation Phase): TAK-676 as escalating doses (0.2 mg and above) + Pembrolizumab

Once a safe and effective dose is recommended from Part 1, participants of select advanced or metastatic solid tumors will receive TAK-676 in below defined cohorts in the expansion phase:

  • Part 2A (SCCHN Dose Expansion Phase): TAK-676 + Pembrolizumab
  • Part 2B (SCCHN Dose Expansion Phase): TAK-676 + Pembrolizumab + Chemotherapy
  • Part 3A (Expansion Phase in CRC): TAK-676 + Pembrolizumab in MSI-H/dMMR CRC
  • Part 3B (Expansion Phase in CRC): TAK-676 + Pembrolizumab in MSS/pMMR CRC

This multi-center trial will be conducted worldwide. The overall time to participate in this study is 54 months. Participants will make multiple visits to the clinic, including 30 days after last dose of study drug for a follow-up assessment. Patients in Parts 2 and 3 will be followed for survival for up to 12 months after the last dose of study drug.

Participants with histologically confirmed (cytological diagnosis is acceptable) metastatic or recurrent, unresectable SCCHN that is considered incurable by local therapies. Participants should not have had prior systemic therapy administered in the recurrent or metastatic setting. Systemic therapy which was completed more than 6 months before signing consent if given as part of multimodal treatment of locally advanced disease is allowed
Clinically significant toxic effects of previous therapy have recovered to Grade 1 (per NCI CTCAE Version 5.0) or baseline, except for alopecia, Grade 2 peripheral neuropathy, and/or autoimmune endocrinopathies with stable endocrine replacement therapy
Anatomic subsites to be included are oral cavity, oropharynx, hypopharynx, larynx, nasal cavity, and paranasal sinuses (maxillary, ethmoid, sphenoid, and frontal). The exception to this is nasopharyngeal cancer and salivary gland tumors, which will not be included
Participants with oropharyngeal cancer or tumors arising in the paranasal sinuses (maxillary, ethmoid, sphenoid, and frontal) must agree to provide archival tissue for human papilloma virus (HPV) testing or if known, HPV testing results using CINtec® p16 Histology assay and a 70% cutoff point must be provided. If HPV status was previously tested using this method, no additional testing is required
For Part 2A, tumors must have a combined positive score (CPS) ≥1. For Part 2B, any CPS is eligible
Have at least 1 lesion amenable for biopsy
For Part 2B, participants must be eligible to receive treatment with either cisplatin or carboplatin in combination with 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) per the treating physician
Agree to have 2 tumor biopsies: 1 during the screening period and 1 while on TAK-676 treatment
