This is a Phase 1, multiple dose, ascending dose escalation study to define a MTD/RD and regimen of XmAb20717, to describe safety and tolerability, to assess PK and immunogenicity, and to preliminarily assess anti-tumor activity of XmAb20717 in subjects with selected advanced solid tumors.

PART B (Dose Expansion Cohorts):

1. Melanoma

2. Renal cell carcinoma (clear cell predominant type)

3. Non-small cell lung carcinoma

4. Castrate-resistant adenocarcinoma of the prostate, defined as progressive disease after surgical castration, or progression in the setting of medical androgen ablation with a castrate level of testosterone (< 50 ng/dL)

5. Nasopharyngeal carcinoma

6. Cholangiocarcinoma

7. Basal cell carcinoma

8. Squamous cell carcinoma of the anus

9. Mesothelioma

10. Ovarian or fallopian tube carcinoma

11. Malignant adnexal neoplasms (including, but not limited to, sebaceous carcinoma, trichilemmal carcinoma, pilomatrix carcinoma, eccrine carcinoma, hidradenocarcinoma, adnexal carcinoma with divergent differentiation, papillary digital eccrine adenocarcinoma, microcystic adnexal carcinoma, and clear cell eccrine carcinoma)

12. Thymoma

13. Thymic carcinoma

14. Squamous cell carcinoma of the penis

15. Neuroendocrine carcinoma

16. Vulvar cancer

17. Non-squamous cell salivary gland carcinoma (except adenoid cystic carcinoma)

18. Subjects with other solid tumors for which there is published evidence of anti-tumor activity with anti-PD1/PDL1 and/or anti-CTLA4-directed therapy but for which there is no FDA-approved anti-PD1/PDL1 or CTLA4-directed checkpoint inhibitor treatment may be eligible for Part B after approval by the Medical Monitor.

- All subjects' cancer must have progressed after treatment with all standard therapies or have no appropriate available therapies.

- Subjects, except those with adenocarcinoma of the prostate, must have measurable disease by RECIST 1.1.

- Have available adequate archival formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded block(s)/slides containing tumor or adequate pre-dose fresh tumor biopsy tissue

- ECOG performance status of 0 - 1

- Subjects with adenocarcinoma of the prostate must have evaluable disease (measurable or nonmeasurable lesions) by PCWG3.

Exclusion Criteria

  • Subjects currently receiving other anticancer therapies, with the exception of subjects with adenocarcinoma of the prostate, who may continue luteinizing hormone-releasing hormone (LHRH) analogue therapy.
  • Treatment with any CTLA4 antibody within 6 weeks of the start of study drug.
  • Treatment with nivolumab or any PDL1 or PDL2-directed antibody within 4 weeks of the start of study drug.
  • Treatment with pembrolizumab within 4 - 12 weeks of the start of study drug (cohort dependent).
  • Treatment with any other anticancer therapy within 2 weeks of the start of study drug (i.e., other immunotherapy, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, etc.). Subjects with prostate cancer may continue LHRH analogue therapy.
  • A life-threatening (Grade 4) immune-mediated AE related to prior immunotherapy.
  • Failure to recover from any immune-related toxicity from prior cancer therapy to ≤ Grade 1, except if previous immune-related endocrinopathy is medically managed with hormone replacement therapy only.
  • Failure to recover from any other toxicity (other than immune-related toxicity) related to previous anticancer treatment to ≤ Grade 2.
  • Have known active CNS metastases and/or carcinomatous meningitis. Participants with previously treated brain metastases may participate provided they are radiologically stable, ie, are without evidence of progression for at least 4 weeks by repeat imaging, are clinically stable, and without requirement of steroid treatment for at least 14 days prior to first dose of study treatment.
  • Active known or suspected autoimmune disease (except that subjects are permitted to enroll if they have vitiligo; type 1 diabetes mellitus or residual hypothyroidism due to an autoimmune condition that is treatable with hormone replacement therapy only; psoriasis, atopic dermatitis, or another autoimmune skin condition that is managed without systemic therapy; or arthritis that is managed without systemic therapy beyond oral acetaminophen and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs).
  • Has any condition requiring systemic treatment with corticosteroids, prednisone equivalents, or other immunosuppressive medications within 14 days prior to first dose of study drug (except that inhaled or topical corticosteroids or brief courses of corticosteroids given for prophylaxis of contrast dye allergic response are permitted).
  • Receipt of an organ allograft.
  • Prior treatment with any checkpoint inhibitor therapy regimen that targets both PD1/L1 and CTLA-4.
