Product: PSB202 is a novel biological entity consisting of two engineered monoclonal antibodies, an Fc-enhanced humanized type II anti-CD20 IgG1 (PSB102) and a humanized anti-CD37 IgG1 (PSB107), that target B-cells. PSB202 is manufactured to work as a single product with the two components of PSB202 enabling a distinct dual target-specific antibody directed cell killing of B-cells.

Study: Multi-center-, International Phase 1a/1b (Escalation/Expansion) study in patients with indolent-, relapsed-, B-cell malignancies. The Phase 1a (Dose Escalation) part of study follows a 3+3 design.

Study: Multi-center-, International Phase 1a/1b (Escalation/Expansion) study in patients with indolent-, relapsed-, CD20+ and CD37+ expressing B-cell malignancies. Phase 1a (Dose Escalation) portion of study follows 3+3 design. Phase 1b (Expansion) enrolls with up to 20 patients in each one of 3 disease-specific cohorts: (1) FL; (2) CLL/SLL, and (3) a mixed indolent B-cell histology cohort comprising WM, indolent phenotype MCL, and MZL.

Primary objectives for Phase 1a are Safety (DLT) and establishing a recommended Phase 1b dose. Primary objective for Phase 1b is establishing preliminary evidence of an anti-lymphoma response in each of the 3 Expansion cohorts, as determined by ORR.

Yes No Not Sure

Inclusion Criteria

Phase 1a (dose escalation)
Histologically confirmed CD20+ expressing indolent NHL (defined below), CLL or WM, failed or intolerant to standard of care therapies
Relapsed/refractory following at least 2 prior lines of standard of care treatment. Prior treatments received must be documented on the enrollment request form. For FL, prior treatment must have included at least 1 rituximab containing regimen
First three dose levels: in the opinion of the investigator, able to tolerate potentially subtherapeutic doses of PSB202 for the duration of a 28-day DLT observation window
Phase 1b - Dose Expansion
Histologically confirmed CD20+ expression. For CD37+, if unavailable from the chart at screening, CD37+ expression may be documented from a new or archived blood specimen after enrollment
Relapsed indolent NHL: histologies that may be included are CLL/SLL, MZL, MALT-lymphoma, follicular NHL, MCL or WM failed, relapsed/refractory or intolerant to at least 2 standard of care therapies. (APPENDIX B). For FL, prior treatment must have included rituximab. MCL must have received a prior alkylating agent
Patients must have documented disease progression after at least two prior standard-of-care regimens
Patients must have measurable disease
All Patients
Signed Informed Consent
Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) 0-2
Last dose of any anti-CD20 antibody therapy must have been >4 weeks before the first dose of PSB202
Patients with a medical history of Covid-19 positivity at within 6 months prior to enrollment, must be retested within 7 days of enrollment and confirm Covid-19 negativity by a PCR-test
At least 18 years of age. There is no upper age restriction
Four weeks wash-out from any other prior cancer therapy, including rituximab or BTK-inhibitors. However, some heavily pretreated patients are at risk for significant morbidity from accelerated disease progression or "flare" when treatment is discontinued prior to the initiation of subsequent effective therapy. Absent residual toxicity and with documented Medical Monitor approval, such patients may receive study drug after five drug half-lives have passed following discontinuation of the immediate pre-study therapy
Adequate hematologic and coagulation status, defined as the following on C1D1 before
Absolute neutrophil count (ANC) ≥ 0.75 billion/L; not requiring growth factors; after the DLT period, growth factor support is allowed and considered supportive care
Platelet count ≥75 billion/L not requiring transfusion support; if there is documented bone marrow involvement, platelet transfusions may be used up to 7 days prior to C1D1 to achieve this threshold
Hemoglobin (Hb) ≥9 mg/dL not requiring transfusion support or growth factors. After the DLT period, growth factor support is allowed and considered supportive care
Adequate coagulation, defined as aPTT and PT (INR) not greater than 1.5 × upper limit of normal (ULN) (patients appropriately anticoagulated for a preexisting medical condition [e.g., atrial fibrillation] may be eligible with documented Sponsor approval)
Adequate hepatic function, defined as
ALT or AST ≤2.5 X the ULN or ≤5 X ULN with documented liver involvement
Total bilirubin ≤1.5 X ULN or ≤3 X ULN with documented liver involvement and/or Gilbert's Disease
Adequate renal function, with estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) ≥50 mL/minute
Ability to comply with outpatient treatment, laboratory monitoring, and required
clinic visits for the duration of study participation
Willingness of men and women of reproductive potential to observe conventional and effective birth control for the duration of treatment and for 3 months following the last dose of study treatment; this may include barrier methods such as condom or diaphragm with spermicidal gel

Exclusion Criteria

Phase 1a (dose escalation) only
NHL with bulky disease defined as a mass ≥10 cm in longest diameter
Transformation (e.g., Richter's transformation, prolymphocytic leukemia, transformed NHL, blastoid lymphoma) prior to planned start of PSB202. In addition, no concurrent investigational therapy is permitted
All patients: Phase 1a (dose escalation) and Phase 1b (dose expansion)
Major surgery within 4 weeks prior to planned start of PSB202
Radiotherapy with a limited field of radiation for palliation within 7 days of the first dose of study treatment, except for patients receiving radiation to more than 30% of the bone marrow or receiving whole brain radiotherapy, which must be completed at least 4 weeks prior to the first dose of study treatment
Continuation of certain standard of care anticancer therapies, including hormonal therapy for breast and prostate cancer, and growth factor support after completion of the DLT-period, is allowed
Therapeutic monoclonal antibody treatment must be discontinued a minimum of 4 weeks prior to the first dose of PSB202. PSB202 may be started sooner after prior investigational agent or anticancer therapy if considered by the Investigator to be safe and within the best interest of the patient (e.g., to avoid disease flare) and with documented Sponsor approval
Any unresolved toxicities from prior therapy greater than CTCAE (version 5.0) Grade 2 or greater at the time of starting study treatment except for alopecia
History of autologous stem cell transplant (auto-SCT) or chimeric antigen receptor-modified T cell (CAR-T) therapy within the past 180 days with any of the following: cytopenias from incomplete blood cell count recovery post-transplant, need for anti-cytokine therapy, residual symptoms of neurotoxicity > Grade 1, or ongoing immunosuppressive therapy
Active graft versus host disease (GVHD, including resultant from any prior solid organ transplants, if received), or ongoing immunosuppressive therapy
History of allogeneic stem cell transplant (allo-SCT) or allogeneic CAR-T at any time in the patient's medical history
Known central nervous system (CNS) involvement by lymphoma. Patients with previous treatment for CNS involvement who are neurologically stable and without evidence of active CNS-disease may be eligible if a clinical rationale is provided by the Investigator and with documented Sponsor approval
Active auto-immune cytopenia (e.g., autoimmune hemolytic anemia [AIHA], idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura [ITP])
Cerebrovascular accident (CVA), Transient ischemic attack (TIA), myocardial infarction, unstable angina, or New York Heart Association (NYHA) class III or IV heart failure < 6 months of study screening; mean ECG QT-interval corrected according to Fridericia's formula (QTcF) > 450 milliseconds (ms) (males) or > 470 ms (females) obtained from three ECGs; uncontrolled arrhythmia < 3 months of study screening. Patients with rate-controlled arrhythmias may be eligible for study entry at discretion of the Investigator
Active uncontrolled systemic bacterial, viral, fungal or parasitic infection (except for fungal nail infection), or other clinically significant active disease process which in the opinion of the Investigator and the Sponsor makes it undesirable for the patient to participate in the trial. Screening for chronic conditions is not required
Tested positive for Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) is excluded (due to potential drug-drug interactions between anti-retroviral medications and PSB202 and risk of opportunistic infections). For patients with unknown HIV status, HIV testing will be performed at Screening
Active viral hepatitis (B or C, HBsAg, anti-HBs/HBcAb and anti-HCV Ab tests) as demonstrated by positive serology or requiring treatment. Subjects who are anti-HBs/HBcAb (+) without detectable HBV-DNA are eligible. Subjects with a history of Hepatitis C and have received successful curative treatment are eligible
Pregnancy or lactation
Active autoimmune disease or history of autoimmune disease requiring systemic therapy < 2 years prior to screening except hypothyroidism, vitiligo, Grave's disease, Hashimoto's disease, or Type I diabetes. Patients with childhood asthma or atopy that has not been active in the 2 years prior to study screening are eligible
History of drug-induced liver injury or cirrhosis
History of pneumonitis or interstitial lung disease
Patients with significant medical diseases or conditions, as assessed by the Investigator and Sponsor, that would substantially increase the risk-benefit ratio of participating in the study
