A Study of RC118 in Patients With Locally Advanced Unresectable or Metastatic Malignant Solid Tumors


About the study

In Phase I, This study will explore the tolerability and safety of RC118 in patients with locally advanced unresectable or metastatic malignant solid tumors with positive Claudin 18.2 expression, and determine the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) and the recommended dose in phase II clinical trials (RP2D); In Phase IIa, to explore the clinical effectiveness and safety of long-term use of RC118 at RP2D doses for patients with different tumor types。

  6. People with allergies, or allergic to known research drug ingredients or excipients
  7. Combined use of vitamin K antagonist anticoagulant drugs; combined use of therapeutic doses of heparin (subjects using preventive doses of heparin can be included in the study)
  8. Received anti-tumor therapy (surgery, chemotherapy, radiotherapy, biological therapy) within 4 weeks before the first administration, and received palliative radiotherapy for bone metastases within 2 weeks
  9. The toxicity of previous anti-tumor treatments has not returned to the level 0 or 1 of NCI-CTCAE v5.0 (except for hair loss)
