This is a multicenter, open-label, Phase 1 study of ABBV-011 given as a single agent and in combination with budigalimab (ABBV-181) in participants with relapsed or refractory small cell lung cancer (SCLC). The study consists of 4 parts: Part A is a single-agent ABBV-011 dose regimen finding cohort; followed by Part B, a single-agent ABBV-011 dose expansion cohort; and then Part C, an ABBV-011 and budigalimab (ABBV-181) combination escalation and expansion cohort; Part D, single-agent ABBV-011 dose-evaluating cohort for Japan.

Open to people ages 18 years and up

  • Histologically or cytologically confirmed small cell lung cancer (SCLC) that is relapsed or refractory following at least 1 prior platinum-containing chemotherapy, but no more than 3 total prior lines of therapy, and with no curative therapy available.
  • Measurable disease, defined as at least 1 tumor lesion greater than or equal to 10 mm in the longest diameter or a lymph node greater than or equal to 15 mm in short axis measurement assessed by computed tomography (CT) scan, according to Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST) version 1.1.
  • Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status of 0 or 1.
  • Minimum life expectancy of at least 12 weeks.
  • Recovery to at least Grade 1 of any clinically significant toxicity (excluding alopecia) prior to initiation of study drug administration.
  • Adequate hematologic, hepatic, neurologic, and renal function.
  • All participants in Part B and Part C will be required to have tumor tissue that tests positive for target expression.
  • Sponsor may elect for confirmed SCLC tumor tissue to test positive for target expression for Parts A and D participants as well.
  • Last dose of any prior anticancer therapy >= 4 weeks before the first dose of study drug.

    Additional Inclusion Criteria for Study Part B and Part C:

  • SCLC tumor tissue that tests positive for seizure-related homolog 6 (SEZ6) by immunohistochemistry (IHC).

  • Active SARS-CoV-2 infection.
  • Prior or concomitant malignancies with some exceptions, as described in the protocol.
