A Phase II Study of Domvanalimab and Zimberelimab Immunotherapy with or without FOLFOX Chemotherapy in People with Esophageal, Gastroesophageal Junction, or Stomach Cancer


Full Title

A Phase 2 Trial to Evaluate the Safety and Efficacy of Combination Therapies in Patients with Advanced Upper Gastrointestinal Tract Malignancies (EDGE-Gastric)


The purpose of this study is to assess the safety and effectiveness of the investigational drugs domvanalimab and zimberelimab given together with or without FOLFOX chemotherapy in people with inoperable or metastatic upper digestive cancers. Both domvanalimab and zimberelimab take the brakes off the immune response by blocking certain proteins, enabling the immune system to find and destroy cancer cells. FOLFOX is a combination of chemotherapy drugs which is commonly used to treat digestive cancers.

Participants in this study who have not received any prior treatment for their cancer will receive domvanalimab, zimberelimab, and FOLFOX. Those who did receive previous therapy will receive domvanalimab and zimberelimab without FOLFOX. The medications used in this study are given intravenously (by vein).
