This is a small phase I study with dose escalation and dose expansion cohorts. The former
cohort will need up to 12 subjects with advanced solid tumor to define feasibility and
recommended phase 2 dose (RP2D); the latter up to 10 subjects to further define safety. Study
subjects will be adults with advanced solid tumor (dose escalation) and advanced non-small
cell lung cancer (NSCLC) who progressed on at least one first-line systemic therapy (dose

checkpoint inhibitors (e.g. anti-PD-1, anti-PD-L1, and any other treatment targeting
T-cell) will be permitted. Subjects who have received experimental vaccines or other
immune therapies should be discussed with the Principal Investigator (PI) to confirm
