Abstract Text Purpose Navicixizumab (OMP-305B83) is a bispecific antibody that inhibits delta-like ligand 4 and vascular endothelial growth factor. This Phase 1a trial assessed escalating doses of navicixizumab in refractory solid tumors patients. Design A 3 + 3 dose escalation design was used followed by the treatment of additional patients in an expansion cohort. Study objectives were determination of the maximum tolerated dose, safety, pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics, immunogenicity and efficacy. Results Sixty-six patients were treated once every 3 weeks in 8 dose-escalation cohorts (0.5, 1, 2.5, 3.5, 5, 7.5, 10, and 12.5 mg/kg) and an expansion cohort (7.5 mg/kg). The median age was 60 years and 68% of the patients were female. The most commonly enrolled tumor types were ovarian (12), colorectal (11) and breast, pancreatic, uterine and endometrial (4 each) cancers. As only 1 dose limiting toxicity occurred, the maximum tolerated dose was not reached, but 7.5 mg/kg was chosen as the dose for the expansion cohort. The treatment related adverse events (≥15% of patients) were hypertension (57.6%), headache (28.8%), fatigue (25.8%), and pulmonary hypertension (18.2%). Pulmonary hypertension was mostly asymptomatic at doses ≤5 mg/kg (6 Gr1, 1 Gr2), but was more severe at higher doses (4 Gr2, 1 Gr3). Navicixizumab's half-life was 11.4 days and there was a moderate (29%) incidence of anti-drug antibody formation. Four patients (3 ovarian cancer, 1 uterine carcinosarcoma) had a partial response and 17 patients had stable disease. Nineteen patients had a reduction in the size of their target lesions including 7/11 patients with ovarian cancer. Four patients remained on study for >300 days and 2 of these patients were on study for >500 days. Conclusions Navicixizumab can be safely administered with manageable toxicities and these data showed preliminary signs of antitumor activity in multiple tumor types, but was most promising in ovarian cancer. As a result these data justify its continued development in combination Phase 1b clinical trials.


  • Case insensitive filtering will display rows where any text in any cell matches the filter term
  • Simple literal full or partial string matches
  • Separate multiple filter terms with a spaces, order doesn't matter (a b c and c b a are equivalent )
  • Filtering will only apply to rows that are already loaded on the page, filtering has no impact on query parameters
  • Use quotes to match a longer phrase which contains spaces "mtor c1483f"


  • Generally, the default sort order for tables is set to be first column ascending, however, specific tables may set a different default sort order.
  • Click on any column header arrows to sort by that column
  • Hold down the Shift key and click multiple columns to sort by more than one column, be sure to set ascending or descending order for a given column, before moving on to the next column.
