Single Patient Expanded Access to Ganitumab for Metastatic Ewing Sarcoma (NCT03029481)

NantCell, Inc.
Despite improvements in outcomes for patients with localized Ewing sarcoma, patients with relapsed metastatic Ewing sarcoma continue to have poor outcomes with current chemotherapy options. A large body of preclinical data supports a role for IGF-1R inhibition in the treatment of Ewing sarcoma. More recently, clinical trials of IGF-1R monoclonal antibodies have demonstrated single- agent activity in patients with relapsed Ewing sarcoma. Ganitumab (AMG 479) is a fully human monoclonal antibody directed against IGF-1R. We are proposing this single-agent expanded access IND to provide our patient the opportunity to benefit from this treatment after having developed progressive disease after multiple lines of prior therapy.
  • Drug: Ganitumab
    The patient will receive ganitumab, 18 mg/kg/dose intravenously every 2 weeks until clinical progression or decision to move to an alternate therapy.
