This Study Aims to Find and Test a Safe Dose of BI 905677 in Patients With Different Types of Cancer (Solid Tumours)



This study is open to adults with different types of advanced cancer (solid tumours). This study is open to people in whom previous treatments were not successful. The purpose of this study is to find out the highest dose of BI 905677 the participants can tolerate. BI 905677 is a type of an antibody that is being developed to treat cancer. One dose of BI 905677 is given to the participants every 2 or 3 weeks as infusion into a vein. In this study, BI 905677 is given to humans for the first time. The participants visit the study site at least once a week so that the doctors can check their general health. The participants are in the study for as long as they benefit from and can tolerate treatment.

The primary objective of this trial is to determine the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) of BI 905677 given as an intravenous infusion and to determine the recommended dose and dosing schedule for further trials in the development of BI 905677. The MTD will be defined based on the frequency of patients experiencing Dose Limiting Toxicity (DLT)s during the MTD evaluation period, which is defined as the first cycle of treatment. Separate MTDs will be determined for dosing Schedule A and dosing Schedule B. Recruitment into Schedule B will start after the MTD of Schedule A is reached. The secondary objective of the trial is: - To determine the pharmacokinetic profile of BI 905677

Trial Arms

BI 905677ExperimentalSchedule A: 3 week cycle (treatment every 3 weeks). Schedule B: 4 week cycle (treatment every 2 weeks). Recruitment into Schedule B will start after the MTD of Schedule A is reached.

             for Adverse Events (CTCAE) Grade 1 at start of treatment (except for alopecia and
             stable sensory neuropathy which must be ≤ CTCAE Grade 2).
