Accepts Healthy Volunteers
Healthy volunteers are participants who do not have a disease or condition, or related conditions or symptoms
An interventional clinical study is where participants are assigned to receive one or more interventions (or no intervention) so that researchers can evaluate the effects of the interventions on biomedical or health-related outcomes.
An observational clinical study is where participants identified as belonging to study groups are assessed for biomedical or health outcomes.
Searching Both is inclusive of interventional and observational studies.
|Eligible Ages||18 Years and Over|
This trial id was obtained from ClinicalTrials.gov, a service of the U.S. National Institutes of Health, providing information on publicly and privately supported clinical studies of human participants with locations in all 50 States and in 196 countries.
Phase 1: Studies that emphasize safety and how the drug is metabolized and excreted in humans.
Phase 2: Studies that gather preliminary data on effectiveness (whether the drug works in people who have a certain disease or condition) and additional safety data.
Phase 3: Studies that gather more information about safety and effectiveness by studying different populations and different dosages and by using the drug in combination with other drugs.
Phase 4: Studies occurring after FDA has approved a drug for marketing, efficacy, or optimal use.
The sponsor is the organization or person who oversees the clinical study and is responsible for analyzing the study data.

|Smoldering Multiple Myeloma|
This research study is a Phase I clinical trial, which tests the safety of an investigational intervention and also tries to define the appropriate dose of the investigational intervention to use for further studies. "Investigational" means that the intervention is being studied. In this research study, the investigators are studying Smoldering Multiple Myeloma. Smoldering Multiple Myeloma is an early precursor to a rare blood cancer known as Multiple Myeloma, which affects plasma cells. The study will test two different combinations of the study drugs; a combination of the vaccine (PVX-410) along with Citarinostat (CC-96241) and triple combination of the vaccine, Citarinostat, and Lenalidomide. The vaccine (PVX-410) is a multi-peptide vaccine that contains four synthetic peptides that together are intended to induce a T cell-mediated immune response against the myeloma. The FDA (the U.S. Food and Drug Administration) has not approved PVX-410 as a treatment for any disease. Citarinostat is an orally active, small-molecule Histone Deacetylase (HDAC) Inhibitor which is being combined here to further augment the immune activity of the vaccine. Citarinostat has not been approved by the FDA as a treatment for any disease. Lenalidomide is commercially available analogue of thalidomide with immunomodulatory, antiangiogenic, and antineoplastic properties that has demonstrated an increase in immune activity in previous trials. The FDA has approved Lenalidomide as a treatment option for Smoldering Multiple Myeloma. Lenalidomide is being added to the combination of the vaccine and Citarinostat because it is hypothesized that co-administration of lenalidomide along with Citarinostat would further enhance the T cell-mediated immune response induced by PVX-410.
