Selinexor in Combination With Thalidomide and Dexamethasone in RRMM

Study Purpose

Multiple myeloma (MM) is an incurable plasma cell cancer that almost all patients eventually relapse despite advancement in treatment strategies. B-cell maturation antigen (BCMA) is a cell surface receptor that expressed primarily by malignant and normal plasma cells. This is a single-arm that includes escalation phase and expansion phase ,Selinexor in Combination withThalidomide and Dexamethasone to Treat Relapsed/Refractory Multiple Myeloma Patients.To evaluate efficacy and safety of Selinexor in combination with Thalidomide and Dexamethasone in RRMM patients received at least one prior lines of therapy

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.

Additional Details

This is a single-arm and open-label phase Ib/IIa study of Relapsed/Refractory Multiple Myeloma patients who have received at least one prior lines of treatment therapy; Approximately 3-48 patients will be enrolled in the study. In dose escalation phase, patients with RRMM will be treated with thalidomide 100mg/d, dexamethasone 20mg biweekly, and escalating doses of oral ATG-010 weekly in a 3+3 design. ATG-010 dose level (DL) 1, 2 and 3 are 60, 80 and 100mg respectively. Then a phase 2 expansion at the recommended dose level based on phase 1b trial will be conducted to evaluate the efficacy, safety and tolerability. This arm is 4 weeks per cycle and include a total of 12 cycles.Selinexor RP2D,Thalidomide will be given at 100mg/d d1-28, and Dexamethasone 20 mg/d will be given on day 1, 2,8,9,15,16,22,23. If a patient develops partial intolerance to glucocorticoids (as determined by the Investigator) during the study, a dose reduction of dexamethasone maximum to 10 mg is permitted. If patients do not tolerate this dose, a potential discontinuation or further dose reduction would be allowed.

Arms & Interventions


Experimental: Selinexor in combination with thalidomide and Dexamethasone

Selinexor in combination with thalidomide and Dexamethasone. Thalidomide will be given at 100mg/d d1-28,and Dexamethasone 20 mg/d will be given on day 1, 2,8,9,15,16,22,23. Treatment will be administered in 28-day cycles,include a total of 12 cycles. Selinexor dose escalation: 60, 80, 100mg respectively on day 1,8,15,22 for 4-week cycles. Then Selinexor will be given at the recommended dose level on phase II.


Drug: - Selinexor

Selinexor (ATG-010# is a first-in-class, oral selective exportin 1 (XPO1) inhibitor (1,2). Selinexor functions by binding with and inhibiting the nuclear export protein XPO1 (also called CRM1), leading to the accumulation of tumor suppressor proteins in the cell nucleus along with inhibition of translation of oncoprotein mRNAs.

Drug: - Thalidomide

100mg/d, Po. on day1-28

Drug: - Dexamethasone

20 mg/d Po. on day 1, 2,8,9,15,16,22,23
