IBI363 has great potential to address unmet clinical need of immunotherapy (IO) resistant and cold tumors by blocking PD-1 checkpoint and cis-activating α-bias IL-2 to rejuvenate exhausted tumor-specific T cells.


Eligible pts failed or intolerant to standard therapy were enrolled. IBI363 was intravenously administered with accelerated titration (0.2/2/10/30 μg/kg QW) and Bayesian optimal interval design (0.1/0.3/0.6/1 mg/kg QW). Further dose optimization was evaluated at 0.3/0.6/1 mg/kg Q2W and 0.6/1/1.5/2/3 mg/kg Q3W. Endpoints were safety and efficacy per RECIST v1.1. 


As of Feb 23, 2024, 326 pts were enrolled (males: 60.7%, ECOG PS 1: 63.3%) with 168 pts at 1 mg/kg, 99 pts below and 59 pts above 1 mg/kg. In dose escalation (n = 22), DLTs occurred in 1 pt at 0.1 mg/kg QW (G4 neutrophil count decreased) and 1 pt at 1 mg/kg QW (G3 arrhythmia). TRAEs occurred in 287 pts (88.0%, with 20.9% ≥G3). Most common TRAEs were arthralgia (33.4%, with 3.1% ≥G3) and anemia (22.7%, with 2.5% ≥G3). TRAEs led to IBI363 discontinuation and death in 9 (3.0%) and 2 (0.7%) pts. In total, 272 pts (≥0.1 mg/kg, 77 with non-small cell lung cancer [NSCLC], 67 with melanoma, 79 with colorectal cancer and 49 with other tumors) had at least 1 post-baseline tumor assessment. Overall ORR was 17.6% (95% CI: 13.3-22.7) and DCR was 57.0% (95% CI: 50.9-62.9). DoR was immature with 8 (16.7%) of 48 responders had events. IO treated pts (n = 185) had ORR of 17.8% (95% CI: 12.6-24.1) and DCR of 62.2% (95% CI: 54.8-69.2). In NSCLC (n = 77, prior tx ≥2L: 79.2%, with 8 had EGFR mutations), ORR was 22.1% (95% CI: 13.4-33.0) and DCR was 67.5% (95% CI: 55.9-77.8). Among them, IO treated pts (n = 72) had ORR of 22.2% (95% CI: 13.3-33.6) and DCR of 68.1% (95% CI: 56.0-78.6). In squamous NSCLC (n = 36, prior tx ≥ 2L: 69.4%, with 35 IO treated, 1 EGFR positive by IHC), ORR was 30.6% (95%CI: 16.3-48.1), DCR was 75.0% (95%CI: 57.8-87.9) and median PFS was 5.5 months (95% CI: 4.0-NC) with 14 (38.9%) pts had events. All squamous NSCLC pts at 3 mg/kg Q3W had partial response (n=4). In mucosal melanoma (n = 25), ORR was 32.0% (95% CI: 14.9-53.5) and DCR was 68.0% (95% CI: 46.5-85.1).


IBI363 was well tolerated in all pts with encouraging efficacy in advanced NSCLC and melanoma.
