      Trial Summary

      The purpose of this study is to assess the efficacy, safety, pharmacokinetics (PK), and pharmacodynamics of two dose levels of RO7247669 in participants with unresectable or metastatic melanoma to select the recommended dose for further development.

      Why is the BP43963 clinical trial needed?

      Melanoma is a type of skin cancer that can be difficult to treat if it cannot be removed by surgery (unresectable melanoma) or if it spreads to other organs in the body (metastatic melanoma). However, new medicines, such as cancer immunotherapies, have shown encouraging results in the treatment of melanoma. Cancer immunotherapies use the body’s immune system to destroy cancerous cells.

      Researchers hope that an experimental cancer immunotherapy drug called RO7247669 will provide better health outcomes for people with unresectable or metastatic melanoma. 

       

      How does the BP43963 clinical trial work?

      This clinical trial is recruiting people who have a type of skin cancer called melanoma. People can take part if they have been diagnosed with unresectable or metastatic melanoma and have not received previous treatment.

      The purpose of this clinical trial is to test the effectiveness and safety of RO7247669 at different doses and to understand the way the body processes RO7247669.

      Participants will be given the clinical trial treatment RO7247669 for a maximum of 2 years or until cancer symptoms get worse or unacceptable side effects are experienced. RO7247669 will be given in a hospital as an infusion (into a vein) every 3 weeks (also known as treatment “cycles”). Participants will be seen by the clinical trial doctor: 

      • Every week for the first treatment cycle (Cycle 1)
      • On Day 1 and Day 5 of Cycle 2
      • On Day 1 of Cycles 3 and 4
      • On Days 1, 8 and 15 of Cycle 5
      • On Day 1 of each following treatment cycle

      These hospital visits will include checks to see how the participant is responding to the treatment and any side effects they may be having. Participants’ total time in the clinical trial will be roughly 2 years and 1 month. Participants are free to stop trial treatment and leave the clinical trial at any time.

       

      What are the main endpoints of the BP43963 clinical trial?

      The main clinical trial endpoint (the main result that is measured in the trial to see if the medicine has worked) is how long participants live without their cancer worsening (known as ‘progression-free survival’).

      The other clinical trial endpoints include the number and seriousness of any side effects, how many participants have a reduction in the size of their tumour (known as ‘objective response rate’), and how the body processes and responds to RO7247669. 

       

      Who can take part in this clinical trial?

      People can take part in this trial if they are at least 18 years old and have been diagnosed with either unresectable or metastatic melanoma.

      People may not be able to take part in this trial if they have certain other medical conditions, have previously received certain treatments, are pregnant or breastfeeding, or are planning to become pregnant.

       

      What treatment will participants be given in this clinical trial?

      Everyone who joins this clinical trial will receive RO7247669. Participants will be split into two groups randomly (like flipping a coin) and given either:

      • RO7247669, given as an infusion into a vein at a low dose once every 3 weeks
      • OR, RO7247669, given as an infusion into a vein at a high dose once every 3 weeks

      Participants will have an equal chance of being placed in either group.

      Neither participants nor the clinical trial doctor can choose the group participants are in. However, this is an open-label trial, which means everyone involved, including the participants and the doctors, know which clinical trial treatment participants have been given.

      Are there any risks or benefits in taking part in this clinical trial?

      The safety or effectiveness of the experimental treatment or use may not be fully known at the time of the trial. Most trials involve some risks to the participant, although it may not be greater than the risks related to routine medical care or the natural progression of the health condition. Potential participants will be told about any risks and benefits of taking part in the clinical trial, as well as any additional procedures, tests, or assessments they will be asked to undergo. These will all be described in an informed consent document (a document that provides people with the information they need to make a decision to volunteer for a clinical trial). A potential participant should also discuss these with members of the research team and with their usual healthcare provider. Anyone interested in taking part in a clinical trial should know as much as possible about the trial and feel comfortable asking the research team any questions about the trial.

      Risks associated with the clinical trial

      Participants may have side effects (an unwanted effect of a drug or medical treatment) from the drug used in this clinical trial. Side effects can be mild to severe and even life-threatening, and can vary from person to person.

      RO7247669

      Potential participants will be told about the known side effects of RO7247669, and where relevant, also potential side effects based on human and laboratory studies or knowledge of similar drugs.

      RO7247669 will be given as an intravenous (into a vein) infusion. Participants will be told about any known side effects of intravenous infusion.

       

      Potential benefits associated with the clinical trial

      Participants' health may or may not improve from participation in the clinical trial, but the information that is collected may help other people who have a similar medical condition in the future.
