Study Summary

This trial is testing a new cancer drug, fruquintinib, to see if it is safe and effective when used with tislelizumab to treat patients with locally advanced or metastatic solid tumors. The trial will be conducted in two parts; a Safety Lead-in Phase (Part 1) and a Dose Expansion Phase (Part 2). Part 1 will be open to any-comer solid tumors and will determine the Recommended Phase 2 Dose (RP2D). The RP2D will be administered to four cohorts of patients in Part 2.

Who is the study for?
This trial is for adults with certain advanced solid tumors, including triple negative breast cancer, endometrial carcinoma, and colorectal cancer. Participants must have a performance status indicating they are relatively active and able to care for themselves. They should not have autoimmune diseases or serious lung conditions, nor should they have received certain prior treatments targeting immune checkpoints or blood vessel growth.Check my eligibility
What is being tested?
The study tests the combination of Fruquintinib, a drug that targets blood vessel growth in tumors, with Tislelizumab, an immunotherapy drug. It's conducted in two parts: first to find the right dose (Safety Lead-in Phase) and then to see how well it works at that dose in different groups of patients (Dose Expansion Phase).See study design
What are the potential side effects?
Potential side effects may include typical reactions from immunotherapies like fatigue, skin reactions or inflammation within organs as well as those related to drugs affecting blood vessels such as high blood pressure or bleeding.
