Clinical Trial Protocol Description:

This is an open-label, randomized, multi-site, phase II, interventional trial designed to evaluate the efficacy, tolerability and safety of BNT111 + cemiplimab in patients with advanced melanoma (skin cancer).

Clinical Trial Eligibility Criteria:

In order to participate you must meet the following criteria:

  • Patients should have received pembrolizumab or nivolumab (with/without ipilimumab).
  • Patients should have received at least 1 but no more than 5 lines of prior therapy for advanced disease.
  • Patients must be able to tolerate additional anti-PD1 therapy (i.e., did not permanently discontinue anti-PD1 therapy due to toxicity).
  • Patients must have known BRAF mutation status.

You will be excluded from the study if any of the following criteria apply to you:

  • Patients must not be pregnant or breastfeeding.
  • Patients must not have history of uveal, acral, or mucosal melanoma.
  • Patients must have no ongoing or recent evidence (within the last 5 years) of significant autoimmune disease that required treatment with systemic immunosuppressive treatments which may suggest risk for immune-related adverse events (irAEs).
  • Patients must have no known primary immunodeficiencies, either cellular (e.g., DiGeorge syndrome, T cell-negative severe combined immunodeficiency [SCID]) or combined T and B cell immunodeficiencies (e.g., T and -B negative SCID, Wiskott Aldrich syndrome, ataxia telangiectasia, common variable immunodeficiency).
