Abstract Text LMB-100 is a recombinant immunotoxin (iTox) consisting of a mesothelin-binding Fab for targeting and a modified Pseudomonas exotoxin A payload. Preclinical studies showed that combining taxanes with iTox results in synergistic antitumor activity. The objectives of this phase I/II study were to determine the MTD of LMB-100 when administered with nanoalbumin bound (nab)-paclitaxel to patients with previously treated advanced pancreatic adenocarcinoma and to assess the objective response rate.Patients (n = 20) received fixed-dose nab-paclitaxel (125 mg/m2 on days 1 and 8) with LMB-100 (65 or 100 μg/kg on days 1, 3, and 5) in 21-day cycles for 1-3 cycles.Fourteen patients were treated on the dose escalation and an additional six in the phase II expansion. MTD of 65 μg/kg was established for the combination. Dose-limiting toxicity resulting from capillary leak syndrome (CLS) was seen in two of five patients treated at 100 μg/kg and one of six evaluable phase I patients receiving the MTD. Severity of CLS was associated with increases in apoptotic circulating endothelial cells. LMB-100 exposure was unaffected by anti-LMB-100 antibody formation in five of 13 patients during cycle 2. Seven of 17 evaluable patients experienced >50% decrease in CA 19-9, including three with previous exposure to nab-paclitaxel. One patient developed an objective partial response. Patients with biomarker responses had higher tumor mesothelin expression.Although clinical activity was observed, the combination was not well tolerated and alternative drug combinations with LMB-100 will be pursued.


  • 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.

Unknown unknown pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma not applicable LMB-100 + Nab-paclitaxel Phase Ib/II Actionable In a Phase I/II trial, the combination of LMB-100 and Abraxane (nab-paclitaxel) led to a greater than 50% decrease in CA19-9 in 41% (7/17) of patients with pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma, and one patient experienced an objective partial response, however, the combination therapy was not well tolerated (PMID: 31792036; NCT02810418). 31792036
