Results from the Completed Dose Escalation Portion of the Phase 1 Study of HPN217, a Half-Life Extended Tri-Specific T Cell Activating Construct (TriTAC®) Targeting B Cell Maturation Antigen (BCMA) for Relapsed/Refractory Multiple Myeloma (MM)

December 11, 2023

Dose escalation has been completed. 97 pts were enrolled across 15 dose escalation cohorts and expansion of 3 regimens with the highest target dose levels from dose escalation (12mg weekly; 24mg every 2 weeks; 24mg weekly for 1 cycle followed by 24mg every 2 weeks). As of 26 June 2023, across all cohorts, 94 pts were treated and had received a median (range) of 6 (2-19) prior lines of treatment (62% penta-exposed, 17% BCMA-targeted therapy, 68% prior transplantation). Median age was 70 (38-85) years. 36 pts (38%) remain on treatment. The most common (≥25%) treatment‑emergent adverse events (TEAEs) across all cohorts and in the 12mg and 24mg cohorts are summarized in Table 1. Dose limiting toxicities (DLTs) of reversible transaminitis (Gr 3, n=1; Gr 4, n=1) in 2 pts at 2.86 mg fixed dose during dose escalation informed the choice of 2.15 mg as priming dose in the highest step dose cohorts; a maximum tolerated dose (MTD) has not been reached in step dose cohorts.

All CRS events were grade 1-2 except one event of grade 3 CRS at 24 mg. Grade 1 ICANS was reported in 2 pts. Responses were observed at doses ≥ 2.15 mg. Among the 12mg and 24mg cohorts, 55% (22/40) of efficacy-evaluable pts currently have had a confirmed response (PR or better) including 2 pts with prior BCMA directed CAR-T cell therapy; disease assessments for recently enrolled patients are pending. Among pts with a response, 73% (16/22) have had a confirmed response of VGPR or better. Across all dose levels, the median time on treatment for pts with a confirmed response was 40 weeks (range 8.3-114 weeks), including 9 patients on treatment for over 12 months, with data maturing to include longer follow-up on patients recently enrolled. HPN217 exhibited linear and dose proportional PK across all dose groups with a median half-life of 68 hours (range 26-197 hours). Transient cytokine increases were higher with the initial/priming dose compared to subsequent/target doses.
