This is a Phase 1b, multi-center, open-label study with a dose-escalation part and a dose
The duration of the study participation for each patient is defined as the time from the date
of signed written informed consent to the completion of the follow-up period, withdrawal of
consent, loss to follow-up, or death, whichever occurs first.
The study will include a Screening Period (of up to 28 days), a Treatment Period (with cycles
of 3 weeks for a Q3W dosing regimen), and a Follow-up Period (approximately every 12 week
visits) for up to 1 year after treatment discontinuation

contraception from the time of giving informed consent until at least 16 weeks after
the last dose of camidanlumab tesirine. Men with female partners who are of
childbearing potential must agree to use a highly effective method of contraception
from the time of giving informed consent until at least 16 weeks after the patient
receives his last dose of camidanlumab tesirine
1. Participation in another investigational interventional study.
2. Prior therapy with a CD25 (IL-2R) antibody within the last 4 months.
3. Known history of ≥Grade 3 hypersensitivity to a therapeutic antibody.
4. Patients with prior solid organ or allogeneic bone marrow transplant.
5. History of symptomatic autoimmune disease (e.g., rheumatoid arthritis, systemic
progressive sclerosis [scleroderma], systemic lupus erythematosus, Sjögren's syndrome,
autoimmune vasculitis [e.g., Wegener's granulomatosis]) (subjects with vitiligo, type
I diabetes mellitus, residual hypothyroidism, hypophysitis due to autoimmune condition
only requiring hormone replacement may be enrolled).
6. History of neuropathy considered of autoimmune origin (e.g., polyradiculopathy
including Guillain-Barré syndrome and myasthenia gravis) or other central nervous
system (CNS) autoimmune disease (e.g., poliomyelitis, multiple sclerosis).
7. History of recent infection (within 4 weeks of C1D1) considered to be caused by one of
the following pathogens: herpes simplex virus 1/2 (HSV1, HSV2), varicella zoster
(VZV), Epstein-Barr virus (EBV), cytomegalovirus (CMV), measles, Influenza A, Zika
virus, Chikungunya virus, mycoplasma pneumonia, Campylobacter jejuni, or enterovirus
8. Known seropositive and requiring anti-viral therapy for human immunodeficiency (HIV)
virus, hepatitis B virus (HBV), or hepatitis C virus (HCV). Note: Testing is not
mandatory to be eligible but should be considered in patients with high risk for these
9. History of Stevens-Johnson syndrome or toxic epidermal necrolysis.
10. Failure to recover to ≤Grade 1 (Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events version
4.0 [CTCAE v4.0]) from acute nonhematologic toxicity (to ≤Grade 2 for neuropathy or
alopecia), due to previous therapy, prior to screening.
11. Symptomatic CNS metastases or evidence of leptomeningeal disease (brain MRI or
previously documented cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) cytology). Previously treated
asymptomatic CNS metastases are permitted provided that the last treatment (systemic
anticancer therapy and/or local radiotherapy) was completed ≥8 weeks prior to Day 1
except usage of low dose of steroids on a taper (i.e., up to 10 mg prednisone or
equivalent on Day 1 and consecutive days is permissible if being tapered down).
Patients with discrete dural metastases are eligible.

hypertensive medication), unstable angina, congestive heart failure (greater than New

days prior to start of study drug (C1D1), except shorter if approved by the Sponsor.
For cytotoxic agents that have major delayed toxicity, e.g., mitomycin C and
nitrosoureas, 4 weeks is indicated as washout period. For patients receiving systemic
anticancer immunotherapies (as opposed to intralesional) that lead to activation of
Teffs and/or increase the Teff/Treg ratio, such as anti-PD-1 antibodies, 5 half-lives
are indicated as the washout period.
19. Use of any other experimental medication within 14 days prior to start of study drug

breast, or other malignancy that the Sponsor's medical monitor and Investigator agree
and document should not be exclusionary.
24. Any other significant medical illness, abnormality, or condition that would, in the
Investigator's judgment, make the patient inappropriate for study participation or put
the patient at risk
