Updated on 18 November 2022


Primary Objective:

  • For Cohort A, Cohort B, and Cohort C Part 2: To assess the antitumor activity of tusamitamab ravtansine in metastatic breast cancer (mBC) and tusamitamab ravtansine monotherapy and in combination with gemcitabine in metastatic pancreatic adenocarcinoma (mPAC)
  • For Cohort C Part 1: Confirmation of the recommended tusamitamab ravtansine dose when administered in combination with gemcitabine

Secondary Objectives:

  • To assess the safety and tolerability of tusamitamab ravtansine administered as monotherapy and in combination with gemcitabine
  • To assess other efficacy parameters of tusamitamab ravtansine administered as monotherapy and in combination with gemcitabine
  • To assess the immunogenicity of tusamitamab ravtansine
  • To assess the pharmacokinetics (PK) of tusamitamab ravtansine and gemcitabine when given in combination


The expected duration of study intervention for participants may vary, based on progression date and the cohort; median expected duration of study per participant is estimated at 8 months for Cohort A/C and 6 months for Cohort B (up to 1 month for screening, a median of 4 or 2 months for treatment in Cohort A/C and Cohort B respectively, a median of 1 month for EOT, and follow-up visit 90 days after the last IMP administration).
