Description of intervention(s) / exposure
Up to 30 subjects with locally advanced or metastatic lung cancer will be enrolled in this study in up to 4 cohorts. Subjects within each cohort will receive a single dose of EARLI-001 given by intravenous administration. The doses will be administered in the clinic to ensure adherence.
The doses to be administered are noted below:
Cohort 1 - 0.003 mg/kg
Cohort 2 - 0.013 mg/kg
Cohort 3 - 0.054 mg/kg
Cohort 4 (Expansion Cohort) - The cohort 4 dose is to be determined and will be the highest tolerable dose or a lower alternate dose as selected by the Principal Investigators and Sponsor

Outcomes
Primary outcome [1] 324664 0
To evaluate the safety of EARLI-001 in subjects with lung cancer through the assessment of treatment-emergent adverse events assessed through regular solicitation of subjects and review of physical examination data, vital sign data (including temperature taken orally, blood pressure determined using a digital blood pressure monitor, pulse rate and respiration rate), ECG data and clinical laboratory assessments of blood and urine: hematology (standard panel), chemistry (standard panel). Example of adverse events that might occur include transient increases in liver function tests, and transient decreases in white blood cells, granulocytes and red blood cells.
Timepoint [1] 324664 0
- Treatment-emergent adverse events will be collected from the time of dosing on Day 1 through the Day 60 final follow-up visit - Physical examinations will be conducted at screening, on Day 1, Day 3, Day 5, Day 8, Day 15, Day 30 and Day 60 - Clinical laboratory assessments of blood and urine will be collected at screening, pre-dose on Day 1, Day 3, Day 5, Day 8, Day 15, Day 30 and Day 60 - ECGs will be collected at screening, pre-dose on Day 1, 15, 30, 45 and 60 minutes and 2, and 4 hours after the start of dosing on Day 1, Day 3, Day 5, and Day 15 - Vital signs will be collected at screening, pre-dose on Day 1, 15, 30, 45 and 60 minutes and 2, and 4 hours after the start of dosing on Day 1, Day 3, Day 5, Day 8, Day 15, Day 30 and Day 60
Secondary outcome [1] 385360 0
To characterise the pharmacokinetic profile of EARLI-001 in subjects with lung cancer.

Maximum age
No limit
Sex
Both males and females
Can healthy volunteers participate?
No
Key exclusion criteria
1. Females of child-bearing potential or who are breastfeeding or who have a positive pregnancy test
2. Has a known severe hypersensitivity to any of the excipients in the formulation of EARLI-001.
3. Has a clinically significant history or presence of ECG findings as judged by the PI or designee at screening
4. Has received treatment within 30 days or 5 half-lives (whichever is greater) before dosing for their current diagnosis of histologically or cytologically confirmed locally advanced or metastatic lung cancer or their current diagnosis with metastases in the lung or liver of a primary cancer origin other than lung cancer. Subjects will be permitted to start on an approved treatment after the Day 8 assessments have been completed.
5. Has received treatment with another investigational drug, or investigational device, within 30 days or 5 half-lives (whichever is longer) before dosing.
6. Is currently taking heparin, or a heparin analog.
7. Has signs or symptoms of organ failure, major chronic illnesses other than cancer, or any concomitant medical or social conditions which, in the opinion of the investigator, make it undesirable for the patient to participate in the study, or which could jeopardize compliance with the protocol.
8. Is unable to cooperate fully with the requirements of the study protocol, including the schedule of assessments, or likely to be non-compliant with any study requirements
9. Other unspecified reasons that, in the opinion of the PI or Sponsor, make the patient unsuitable for enrollment.

Statistical methods / analysis
This is an early development study, and therefore no statistical considerations were involved in the sample size determination. The sample size was chosen based on clinical experience. It is expected that the sample size of 9 to 30 subjects in up to 4 cohorts should be adequate for evaluation of safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics in this single ascending dose study.

Summary
Brief summary
This project is testing the safety, pharmacokinetics (PK, the amount of study drug in your blood), and pharmacodynamics of single intravenous doses of a new drug called EARLI-001. EARLI-001 is a method for the detection of cancers.

Who is it for?
You may be eligible for this study if you are an adult man or woman over the age of 18 who has been newly diagnosed with locally advanced or metastatic lung cancer.

Study details
Participants will receive a single dose of EARLI-001 at one of 4 different dose levels. EARLI-001 will be given to you intravenously.

Total participation will last up to 60 days which includes 8 visits to the clinic for assessments and to collect blood and urine samples.

It is hoped that this research will help determine the safety of EARLI-001 when given to patients with lung cancer.
