Study type
Description of intervention(s) / exposure
The study will consist of 3 dosing cohorts. In each cohort, 3 participants will be treated with once weekly subcutaneous injections of INB03 at a dose of 0.3 (no more than 30 mg), 1.0 (no more than 100 mg) or 3.0 mg/kg (no more than 220 mg or 2 vials of INB03), respectively. INB03 will be administered weekly for 9 months or until disease progression as determined by the PI and/or participant intolerance as determined by the Principal Investigator (PI). However, participants may continue INB03 therapy at any time, including after study end at Month 9, on a compassionate use basis if the attending physician believes the subject is benefiting from the therapy in any way.
INB03 will be administered by a study nurse at clinical investigation site from Day 1 till Day 85 visits. At the discretion of the investigator patients may be allowed to self-administer INB03 at home from Month 4 visit onwards. Subjects who undergo home-administration of INB03 will be asked to bring all used, partially used, or unused contains to study staff at each study visit for completion of drug accountability and monitor adherence.
All subjects will receive their assigned INB03 dose through Month 3. After all subjects have
completed 3 months of therapy, an interim analysis will be conducted and an optimal dose for the Phase 2 trial will be determined by the Data Safety Monitoring Board (DSMB). Further dosing of INB03 after Month 3 may be adjusted to the selected dosage for Phase 2.

Control group
Dose comparison

Primary outcome [1] 305165 0
Safety and tolerability of INB03 given by sub-cutaneous injection once a week. This outcome is incidence of grade 3 or greater AEs and SAEs as graded by NCI CTCAE criteria v 5.0.
Timepoint [1] 305165 0
Day 1, 3, 5, 8, 15, 22, 29, 36, 43, 50, 57, 64, 71, 78 & 85
Primary outcome [2] 305166 0
Evaluate the pharmacokinetics (PK) of single dose and multiple doses of INB03. Due to the cross-reactivity of INB03 and serum soluble TNF in assay systems, the FDA recommended the Sponsor use serum soluble TNF levels as a measure of drug level during the clinical trials. An abbreviated PK study format will be used.
Timepoint [2] 305166 0
Four time points will be studied for the first dose PK and trough levels will be monitored for the multi-dose PK. Specifically measurements of human TNF-Alpha levels will be tested in blood samples collected at time 0, 1, 4 and 8 hours after the first INB03 dosing on Day 1. Trough levels will continue to be collected on Day 3 and prior to successive doses on Day 8, 15, 22, 29, 43, 57, 85, and Month 4-9.

Brief summary
The purpose of this study is to determine the safety and tolerability of INB03 in patients with metastatic cancer.

Who is it for?
You may be eligible for this study if you have epithelial cancer of the lung, breast, upper or lower gastrointestinal tract, kidney, or skin (melanoma only).

Study details.
All participants will receive INB03 subcutaneously once a week for up to 9 months. There will be three groups who each receive a different dose. As a part of the clinical research study patients will have regular blood tests, physical examinations, will have to complete short questionnaires on their depression, sleep and fatigue.

This is first in the human clinical research study and its results will help to determine if INB03 is safe and is tolerated well. Dose of INB03 selected in this study will be used in future study intended for patients with metastatic cancer.

Data sharing statement
Will individual participant data (IPD) for this trial be available (including data dictionaries)?
No/undecided IPD sharing reason/comment
The data will be analyzed in aggregate and reported as such to the PI, participants if interested, clinical community (via public disclosure in presentations, publications, investigator brochure and other public forums), to regulatory authorities by regulatory filings on this trial and related future trials, and to the investor community at private and public meetings.
There will be no patient identifier data attached to any of the aggregate data. The only place the patient name can be associated with the data is at the CRO where the original enrollment occurs. After enrollment, all data entry is based on an anonymized patient identifier.
