Abstract 152P


HBM4003 is a fully human heavy chain only monoclonal antibody targeting CTLA-4. In addition to blocking the CTLA-4 pathway, HBM4003 is also engineered to deplete Treg cells by enhanced antibody-dependent cellular cytotoxicity (ADCC) activity that was clinically validated. Here we reported updated results of a phase I study that evaluated HBM4003 plus toripalimab (anti-PD-1 antibody) in advanced melanoma.


This study includes two parts. In the dose-escalation part, patients with solid tumors received HBM4003 at 3 dose levels (0.03 mg/kg [n=1], 0.1 mg/kg [n=3], and 0.3 mg/kg [n=10]) plus toripalimab 240 mg every three weeks (Q3W). In the dose-expansion part, patients with advanced melanoma (n=26) received the recommended phase 2 dose (RP2D) of HBM4003 0.3 mg/kg plus toripalimab 240 mg Q3W.


As of 27 Jun 2022, a total of 40 patients had been dosed. Median follow-up time was 106.5 days. Treatment-related adverse events (TRAEs) were reported in 85.0% (34/40) patients, and ≥Grade 3 TRAEs were reported in 20.0% (8/40) patients. The most commonly reported TRAE was rash (30.0%). Patients with advanced melanoma treated with RP2D (including 8 patients in Part 1 and 26 patients in Part 2) were categorized as anti-PD-(L)1 naïve group (Cohort A, 17 patients) and anti-PD-(L)1 pretreated group (Cohort B, 17 patients). For cohort A, the ORR and DCR were 53.3% (95%CI: 26.6-78.7) and 73.3% (95%CI: 44.9-92.2) respectively in the 15 patients with post-treatment tumor assessment. The ORR of cutaneous, acral, mucosal and unknown subtype were 66.7% (2/3), 50% (2/4), 60.0% (3/5) and 33.3% (1/3), respectively. For Cohort B, the ORR and DCR were 11.8% (95%CI: 1.5-36.4) and 35.3% (95%CI: 14.2-61.7) respectively, including one patient achieving PR after pseudo-progression. Both of the PR cases were mucosal subtype.


HBM4003 0.3 mg/kg plus toripalimab 240mg Q3W showed promising anti-tumor activity in anti-PD-(L)1 naive patients with advanced melanoma including acral and mucosal subtypes, as well as an acceptable safety profile.
