About the FRONTIER Trial
The FAPi Radioligand OpeN-label, phase 1 study to evaluate safety, Tolerability, and dosImetry of [Lu-177]-PNT6555; a dose Escalation study for tReatment of patients with select solid tumors (FRONTIER) trial is an open-label, phase 1 trial to evaluate safety, tolerability, and dosimetry of [Lu-177]-PNT6555 and [Ga-68]-PNT6555, the lead assets of the PNT2004 program. The trial commenced in summer 2022 in Canada and uses a [Ga-68]-based PNT6555 molecular imaging agent to select participants to receive a no-carrier-added (n.c.a.) [Lu-177]-based PNT6555 therapeutic agent. FRONTIER is designed to enroll up to 30 participants across seven FAP-avid cancer indications: colorectal cancer, adenocarcinoma of the pancreas, esophageal cancer, melanoma skin cancer, soft tissue sarcoma, cholangiocarcinoma, and head and neck cancer. Dose level cohorts 1 and 2 have been completed without dose-limiting toxicity. Enrollment to dose level cohort 3 (12 GBq) began in May 2023. We anticipate data from the full FRONTIER study to be available in the first half of 2024.
