A Phase 1, First-in-Human, Open-Label, Dose Escalation Study of MGD013, A Bispecific DART® Protein Binding PD-1 and LAG-3 in Patients With Unresectable or Metastatic Neoplasms

Trial ID # NCT03219268
Phase I
Drug Class Immunotherapy: Bispecifics/PD-1, LAG-3
Drug Name Tebotelimab
Alternate Drug Names MGD013, dual-affinity retargeting protein MGD013, anti-PD-1/anti-LAG-3 DART protein MGD013
Drugs in Trial Margetuximab, Tebotelimab
Eligible Participant

Advanced solid tumors

Patients Enrolled

Teb expansion: 23 ovarian; Teb+Marg: 41 HER2+; median 2 prior therapies (5 ovarian)

Therapy Setting


Study Design

Open-Label, Non-randomized


ORR, DCR, evaluated per RECIST


ORR: 8.7% (2PR)
DCR: 52.2% (2PR, 10SD)

Tebotelimab (MGD013)+Margituximab: 41 HER2+ patients, median 2 prior therapies, 5 ovarian
ORR: 28.6% (1CR - cholangiocarcinoma, 5PR, 2uPR - 1 ovarian); DCR: 50% (1CR, 5PR, 2uPR, 6SD) - responses in PD-L1 low patients


Tebotelimab has an acceptable safety profile and shows encouraging early evidence of anti-tumor activity
