HER2 gene amplification or overexpression is common in breast cancer and gastric cancer but has also been seen in other solid tumors, including colorectal cancer, non-small cell lung cancer, gallbladder cancer, renal pelvis cancer, pancreatic cancer, etc. Anti-HER2-targeted therapy combined with chemotherapy improves survival outcomes in metastatic HER2-positive malignancies, while the reports of immunotherapy combined with HER2-targeted therapy are still very limited.

KN026-203 is an open-label, phase II, multi-center clinical study to evaluate the efficacy and safety of KN026 combined with KN046 in the treatment of HER2-positive solid tumors, the primary endpoint is the objective response rate (ORR) assessed by the investigator according to RECIST 1.1.
