A Phase I Study of AGEN1811 and Balstilimab Immunotherapy in People with Fibrolamellar Carcinoma or Another Type of Gastrointestinal Cancer


Full Title

A Phase 1 Study of AGEN1181, an Fc-Engineered Anti-CTLA-4 Monoclonal Antibody as Monotherapy and in Combination with AGEN2034 (balstilimab), an Anti-PD-1 Monoclonal Antibody, in Subjects with Advanced Cancer


The purpose of this study is to assess the safety of giving combination treatment with the investigational drug AGEN1811 and another medication called balstilimab in people with advanced fibrolamellar carcinoma (FLC) or another type of advanced digestive cancer that has come back or continued to grow despite therapy. Both drugs work by blocking proteins that cancer cells use to avoid being seen by the immune system. They boost the ability of the immune system to find and kill cancer cells. AGEN1811 and balstilimab are each given intravenously (by vein).
