This is a Phase 1, Open-Label Study of ABSK043 to Assess Safety, Tolerability, and Pharmacokinetics in Patients with Advanced Solid Tumor.

Preliminary antitumor activity will also be assessed. Investigate the pharmacodynamics (PD) effects and Investigate the metabolites of oral ABSK043


The study will start with a dose escalation part of single-agent ABSK043 administered in repeated 28-day cycles in patients with advanced solid for safety and tolerability. The expansion part of oral ABSK043 at recommended dose of expansion (RDE) will be followed for further evaluating safety and tolerability among selected tumor types. Preliminary antitumor activity will also be assessed.

Exclusion Criteria

Known allergy or hypersensitivity to any component of the investigational product
For expansion part MSI-H or dMMR cohort only: previously treated with PD-(L)1 pathway inhibitors (including monoclonal antibody and small molecular agents)

For expansion part only: Has a known additional malignancy that is progressing or required active treatment. Exceptions include basal cell carcinoma of the skin, squamous cell carcinoma of the skin that has undergone potentially curative therapy, or other in situ cancers
Inability to take oral medication or significant nausea and vomiting, malabsorption, external biliary shunt, or significant bowel resection that would preclude adequate absorption of oral medication
Previous anti-cancer therapy, including chemotherapy (chemotherapy with nitrosourea or mitomycin should be 6 weeks prior to initiation of study treatment), radiotherapy, molecular targeted therapy or other investigational drugs received in previous clinical trial ≤4 weeks; endocrine therapy ≤2 weeks or ≤5-half-life (whichever is shorter) prior to initiation of study treatment
Major surgery within 4 weeks of the first dose of study drug and all surgical wounds must be healed and free of infection or dehiscence
Vaccination with a live, attenuated vaccine within 4 weeks of the first dose of study treatment and while on trial is prohibited except for administration of inactivate vaccines (e.g., COVID-19 vaccines, inactivated influenza vaccines)
Prior toxicities from chemotherapy, radiotherapy, and other anti-cancer therapies, including immunotherapy that have not regressed to Grade ≤1 severity (CTCAE v5.0) with the exception of alopecia, vitiligo or event(s) that is considered non-clinical meaningful by the Investigator
History of Grade ≥3 immune-related adverse event(s) occurred in previous treatment

For expansion part only: last treatment with therapeutic oral or intravenous antibiotics within 2 weeks prior to first dose of study treatment
Concomitant use of the drugs/remedies that may cause pharmacokinetic drug-drug interactions; Consumption of grapefruit juice, grapefruit hybrids, pomegranates, starfruit, pomelos, Seville oranges or juice or products within 7 days prior to the first dose of study medication (for Escalation Part only)
Active central nervous system (CNS) metastases including cerebral edema, system hormone treatment, disease progression due to intracranial lesions, leptomeningeal metastasis, and other clinical symptoms related to CNS metastases (if stable disease>8 weeks after treatment and free from glucocorticoids can be enrolled)
Impaired cardiac function or clinically significant cardiac disease, including any one of the following
New York Heart Association class III or IV heart disease, active ischemia or any other uncontrolled cardiac condition such as angina pectoris, clinically significant cardiacarrhythmia requiring therapy, uncontrolled hypertension or congestive heart failure
Baseline prolongation of the rate-corrected QT interval based on repeated demonstration of QTcF >480 ms or history of long QT interval corrected (QTc) syndrome (Note: QTc interval corrected by Fridericia's formula). Left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) <50% or below the lower limit of normal(whichever is higher)

with positive hepatitis B surface antibody are allowed)
Patients with refractory/uncontrolled ascites or pleural effusion. Patients with indwelling catheters are allowed
Pregnant or nursing (lactating) women, where pregnancy is defined as the state of a female after conception and until the termination of gestation, confirmed by a positive human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) laboratory test within 7 days prior to the start of study drug
Non-surgically sterilized male or female patients of childbearing potential must agree to use effective methods of birth control during the study and for up to 6 months after the last dose of study drug
Sexually active males unless they use a condom during intercourse while taking drug and for 5 compound half-lives plus 60 days after stopping study drug and should not father a child in this period. A condom is required to be used also by vasectomized men in order to prevent delivery of the drug via seminal fluid
Any other clinically significant comorbidities, such as uncontrolled pulmonary disease, active infection, or any other condition, which in the judgment of the Investigator, could compromise compliance with the protocol, interfere with the interpretation of study results, or predispose the patient to safety risks
