Phase II Study of Induction PD-1 Blockade in Subjects with Locally Advanced Mismatch Repair Deficient Solid Tumors. Attached to this email is the protocol and the SIV presentation materials. Additional documents can be found in iRIS.

The purpose of this study is to find out whether the study drug, TSR-042, followed by standard chemoradiotherapy (the chemotherapy drug capecitabine + radiation therapy) and standard surgery is an effective treatment for advanced dMMR solid tumors. The study will also look at the safety of the study drug.
