This is a Phase 2, multicenter, two-stage, open-label, parallel-group study designed to evaluate the efficacy and safety of vudalimab (XmAb20717) in patients with selected advanced gynecologic and genitourinary malignancies.

Official Title

A Phase 2 Study of XmAb20717 in Patients With Selected Gynecological Malignancies and High-Risk Metastatic Castration-Resistant Prostate Cancer


This is a Phase 2, multicenter, two-stage, open-label, parallel-group study designed to evaluate the efficacy and safety of vudalimab in patients with selected advanced gynecologic and genitourinary malignancies and to identify tumor types for further evaluation.

In Stage 1, subjects will be enrolled into 1 of 5 tumor-specific, parallel cohorts (n = 10 each):

Within each tumor-specific cohort in Stage 1, a primary endpoint of ORR at 12 weeks, based on investigator review, will be used to determine cohort expansion into Stage 2. Each Stage 1 cohort that achieves an ORR of ≥ 20% (at least 2 out of 10 subjects with an objective response) will enroll up to an additional 20 subjects in Stage 2. Cohorts with an ORR of less than 20% will discontinue enrollment. However, additional factors will be considered in determining an expansion into Stage 2 (eg, enrollment rate, complete versus partial response, and DOR).

  • Histologically confirmed diagnosis of one of the following tumor types, along with clinical/pathologic confirmation of the additional requirements for each indication, as appropriate:
    1. Persistent or recurrent clear cell carcinoma of the ovary, peritoneum, or endometrium after treatment with platinum-based systemic chemotherapy

Advanced endometrial carcinoma that is not microsatellite instability-high (MSI-H) or deficient mismatch repair (dMMR) in patients who are not candidates for curative surgery or radiation, and that has progressed following treatment with no more than one prior line of systemic therapy and prior treatment with FDA-approved combination therapy consisting of a checkpoint inhibitor and a targeted agent
    5. High-risk metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer:
      • Castration resistance defined as progressive disease after surgical castration, or progression in the setting of medical androgen ablation with a castrate level of testosterone (< 50 ng/dL)
      • High-risk disease is any visceral, soft tissue, or lymph node metastasis(es) with/without bone metastases

  • Female subjects of childbearing potential must agree to use a highly effective method of birth control during and for 4 weeks after completion of study. Women are considered to be of childbearing potential unless it is documented that they are over the age of 60 OR postmenopausal by history with no menses for 1 year and confirmed by follicle-stimulating hormone (using local reference ranges) OR have a history of hysterectomy and/or bilateral oophorectomy OR have a history of bilateral tubal ligation. Highly effective methods of birth control include hormonal birth control (oral, intravaginal, or transdermal), or progestogen-only hormonal contraception associated with inhibition of ovulation (oral, injectable, or intrauterine), intrauterine devices (IUDs), intrauterine hormone-releasing system, bilateral tubal occlusion, vasectomized partner (provided partner is the sole sexual partner and there has been a medical assessment of surgical success), or sexual abstinence
  • Fertile male subjects must be willing to practice a highly effective method of birth control during and for 4 weeks after completion of study
  • Male subjects must agree not to donate sperm from screening through 4 weeks after completion of study
  • Able and willing to complete the entire study according to the study schedule
