      Trial Summary

      This is an open-label, multi-center, Phase Ib clinical study of cergutuzumab amunaleukin, in combination with atezolizumab, to investigate the safety, pharmacokinetics, and therapeutic activity in participants with locally advanced and/or metastatic carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA)-positive solid tumors, whose disease has progressed on or who are intolerant to the standard of care therapy. Enrolled participants who continue treatment will be treated until loss of clinical benefit, unacceptable toxicities, or withdrawal of consent. The study will include 2 parts: a dose-escalation Part I and a dose expansion Part II. The anticipated treatment period is 24 months for both cergutuzumab amunaleukin and atezolizumab and may be modified if emerging data suggest a benefit.

      • Leptomeningeal disease
      • Participants with an active second malignancy (other than non-melanoma skin cancer or cervical carcinoma in situ). Participants who have a history of malignancy are not considered to have an active malignancy if they have completed therapy and are considered by their treating physician to be at <= 30 percent (%) risk for relapse
      • Evidence of significant, uncontrolled concomitant diseases which could affect compliance with the protocol or interpretation of results, including diabetes mellitus, history of relevant pulmonary disorders, and known autoimmune diseases
