A Study With an Active Drug Alone and in Combination With Taxane Therapy in Adults With Relapsed and/or Refractory Solid Tumors

Brief summary

An open-label, dose-escalation (Part 1), dose-expansion (Part 2) study to assess the safety, pharmacokinetics (PK), and preliminary efficacy of an active drug alone and in combination with paclitaxel or docetaxel.

In Part 1 (dose escalation), subjects will receive escalating doses of an active drug monotherapy (Part 1a) or an active drug in combination with paclitaxel or docetaxel (Part 1b).

In Part 2 (dose expansion), subjects will receive an active drug monotherapy or in combination therapy. The active drug monotherapy cohort will enroll subjects with relapsed or refractory (R/R) small cell lung cancer (SCLC) (Part 2a); the active drug plus a taxane (paclitaxel or docetaxel) combination cohort will enroll subjects with R/R non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) and breast cancer (Part 2b).

Eligibility criteria

Participant attributes:
Male and Female


18 Years and older.

Inclusion Criteria:

- Has a histologic or cytologic diagnosis of a malignant solid tumor.

- Participants enrolled in Part 2a (monotherapy, dose expansion) must have small cell
lung cancer (SCLC) diagnosis; participants enrolled to Part 2b (combination therapy,
dose expansion) must have either NSCLC or HR-positive/HER2-negative breast cancer.

- Measurable disease defined by Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST)

- An Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status less than or equal to

- Failure of at least 1 prior systemic chemotherapy including all available standard
therapies for participants in the dose-escalation phase (Parts 1a and 1b) including
the safety lead-in phase (Japan only).

- All participants with breast cancer for subjects in the dose-expansion phase (Part 2b
only) must have the following:

- Locally advanced or metastatic HR-positive/HER2-negative breast cancer after
failing cyclin-dependent kinase (CDK)4/6 inhibitor-based therapy.

- HR-positivity and HER-2-negativity should be confirmed based on American Society
of Clinical Oncology (ASCO)/College of American Pathologists (CAP) criteria.

- All participants with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) for participants in the
dose-expansion phase (Part 2b only) must have R/R NSCLC after at least 1 line of
therapy. Participants with activating mutations in EGFR, ALK/ROS1, BRAF genes, or with
positive expression of PD-L1 must have been treated with the appropriate targeted

- All participants with SCLC in the dose-expansion phase (Part 2a only) must have R/R
SCLC from at least 1 line of therapy which includes a platinum-based therapy with or
without an anti-PD-1/PD-L1 therapy.

- All participants with either breast cancer or NSCLC must have the following if exposed
to prior taxane-based therapy:

- No history of taxane allergy (Part 1b and Part 2b only).

- Disease that has relapsed or progressed at least 2 months after most recent
exposure to any taxane-based therapy.

- Available tumor tissue suitable for immunohistochemistry testing.

- Adequate kidney, liver, and hematologic laboratory values as described in the

Exclusion Criteria:

- Untreated brain or meningeal metastases (participants with a history of metastases may
be eligible based on details described in the protocol).

- Grade 2 or higher peripheral neuropathy (only applies to participants who would
receive taxane therapy).

- Unresolved Grade 2 or higher toxicities related to previous anticancer therapy except

- Known active infection of hepatitis B, hepatitis C, or human immunodeficiency virus
with exceptions as described in the protocol.

- Recent history (within 6 months) of congestive heart failure (defined in the
protocol), ischemic cardiovascular event, cardiac arrhythmia requiring pharmacological
or surgical intervention, pericardial effusion, or pericarditis.

- Any history of hypersensitivity to any ingredients of ABBV-155 will be excluded. For
combination therapy only (Parts 1b and 2b), no history of serious allergic reaction to
any taxane or any ingredients used in taxane formulation (e.g., cremaphor).
