    • To assess the safety and tolerability of GRT-C903 (a ChAdV-based vaccine) and GRT-R904 (a SAM-LNP-based vaccine) in combination with immune checkpoint blockade, as assessed using Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (CTCAE v5) in patients with advanced/metastatic MSS-CRC, NSCLC, PDA, as well as in other mutation-positive solid tumors.
    • Phase 2 and Expansion Cohorts: To assess the anti-tumor activity of GRT-C903 and GRT-R904 in combination with immune checkpoint blockade in patients with advanced/metastatic MSS-CRC, NSCLC, PDA, and other mutation-positive solid tumors as assessed by objective response rate (ORR) according to the Investigators using Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST) v1.1.
    • To define (Phase 1) and confirm (Phase 2) the recommended Phase 2 dose (RP2D) of GRT-C903 and GRT-R904 administered in combination with checkpoint blockade.
