Safety and Efficacy of Daratumumab in Combination With Ixazomib and Dexamethasone in Patients With Relapsed or Refractory Multiple Myeloma

Study Purpose

This study will assess the efficacy of daratumumab in combination with ixazomib and dexamethasone as second line treatment for relapsed Multiple Myeloma patients.

Recruitment Criteria

Accepts Healthy Volunteers

Healthy volunteers are participants who do not have a disease or condition, or related conditions or symptoms

Study Type

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.

Patient has received anti-myeloma treatment within 2 weeks or 5 pharmacokinetic half-lives of the treatment, whichever is longer, prior to C1D1. The only exception is emergency use of a short course of corticosteroids (equivalent of dexamethasone 40 mg/day for a maximum of 4 days) for palliative treatment before C1D1. 4. Previous allogenic stem cell transplant; or autologous stem cell transplantation (ASCT) within 12 weeks before C1D1. 5. Patient has received radiotherapy within 14 days of C1D1. Urgent localized radiotherapy for Spinal Cord Compression is allowed. 6. History of malignancy (other than MM) within 3 years before C1D1 (exceptions are squamous and basal cell carcinomas of the skin, carcinoma in situ of the cervix or breast, or other noninvasive lesion that in the opinion of the investigator, with concurrence with the Sponsor's medical monitor, is considered cured with minimal risk of recurrence within 3 years). 7. Clinical signs of meningeal involvement of MM. 8. Patient has clinically significant cardiac disease, including: unstable angina or myocardial infarction within 6 months to C1D1, NYHA Class III or IV heart failure, uncontrolled angina, history of severe coronary artery disease, severe uncontrolled ventricular arrhythmias, sick sinus syndrome, or electrocardiographic evidence of acute ischemia or Grade 3 conduction system abnormalities unless patient has a pacemaker, or ECG showing a baseline QT interval as corrected by Fridericia's formula (QTcF) > 470 msec. 9. Known active hepatitis A, B, or C. 10. Known HIV infection. 11. Patient has a history of significant neurological, endocrine, gastrointestinal, respiratory, or inflammatory illness or stroke; or COPD requiring > 2 hospitalizations in the preceding 12 months from C1D1. 12.

Patient has uncontrolled hypertension or hypertension requiring >2 medications for adequate control within 14 days to C1D1. 14. Patient has uncontrolled diabetes within 14 days to C1D1 or diabetes mellitus with > 2 episodes of ketoacidosis in the preceding 12 months from C1D1. 15. Patient has ongoing ≥ Grade 2 peripheral neuropathy. 16. Patient had ≥ Grade 3 rash during prior therapy. 17.

Additional Details

This is a Phase 2, single-arm study of daratumumab in combination with ixazomib and dexamethasone as second line treatment for relapsed Multiple Myeloma patients initially treated with lenalidomide-based regimens. Daratumumab is a human IgG1ĸ monoclonal antibody that binds with high affinity to a unique epitope on CD38, a transmembrane glycoprotein. It is a targeted immunotherapy that attacks tumor cells that overexpress CD38, in a variety of hematological malignancies including multiple myeloma. Ixazomib is an orally administered proteasome inhibitor with anti-myeloma activity.
