A Study of C-CAR088 in Patients With Relapsed or Refractory Multiple Myeloma

Study Purpose

This is a multicenter, open-label study to evaluate the safety and efficacy of C-CAR088 in patients with relapsed or refractory multiple myeloma. The phase Ib part of this study is to determine the recommended phase 2 dose (RP2D) of C-CAR088 in the targeted patient population.

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 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.

Additional Details

The study includes the following sequential procedures: Screening, Apheresis and C-CAR088 manufacturing, Baseline testing, Lymphodepletion, C-CAR088 infusion, and Follow-up Visit. Two dose levels of C-CAR088 will be tested during the phase Ib part to determine RP2D, which will be further evaluated during the phase II part.
