Anti-BCMA CAR-T Cell Therapy for the R/R Multiple Myeloma

Study Purpose

Although the anti-CD19 CAR-T cell therapies have gained significant results in patients with relapsed and refractory B-cell hematologic malignancies. There are few effective treatments for MM(multiple myeloma). BCMA (B cell maturation antigen) is a promising target for malignant plasma cells. Therefore, we designed a clinical trial using anti-BCMA CAR-T cell therapy for patients with relapsed and refractory multiple myeloma.

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.

Trial Details

Trial ID:

This trial id was obtained from, 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.

Arms & Interventions


Experimental: BCMA CAR-T

The study will employ dose level cohorts of three patients that will be treated at each level described below, based on the number of T cells to be infused using the "3 + 3" dose-escalation strategy to find MTD followed by a dose-expansion phase at determined optimal dosage.


Biological: - anti-BCMA CAR-T

5×10^7 /KG 15×10^7 /KG 45×10^7/KG Treatment follows a lymphodepletion, chemotherapy regimen that consists of Fludarabine (30 mg/m2 per day) and Cyclophosphamide (300mg/m2 per day) for 3 days prior to cell infusion.
