Trial of Sequential Treatment of Multiple Myeloma with Antibody Therapy


About this study

The purpose of this study is to determine the overall response rate (ORR) of utilizing elotuzumab, pomalidomide and dexamethasone in patients with multiple myeloma resistant to daratumumab.

Participation eligibility

Participant eligibility includes age, gender, type and stage of disease, and previous treatments or health concerns. Guidelines differ from study to study, and identify who can or cannot participate. There is no guarantee that every individual who qualifies and wants to participate in a trial will be enrolled. Contact the study team to discuss study eligibility and potential participation.

    • Absolute neutrophil count (ANC) ≥ 1,000 cell/mm^3 without growth factor support;
    • Platelet ≥ 50,000 cells/mm^3 for patients who have bone marrow plasmacytosis < 50% or ≥ 30,000 cells/mm3 for patients who have bone marrow plasmacytosis of ≥ 50%;
    • Total bilirubin ≤ 1.5 x ULN unless due to Gilbert’s syndrome, in which case the direct bilirubin must be ≤ 1.5 X ULN;
    • Alanine aminotransferase (ALT) and Aspartate transaminase (AST) 3 x ULN;
    • PT/INR/aPTT ≤ 1.5 x ULN OR if patient is receiving anticoagulant therapy and PT/INR or aPTT is within target range of therapy;
    • Calculated or measured creatinine clearance ≥ 30 ml/min. 
  • Negative urine or serum pregnancy test done ≤ 14 days prior to registration, for persons of childbearing potential only.
    • NOTE: If the urine test is positive or cannot be confirmed as negative, a serum pregnancy test will be required.
  • Provide written informed consent.
  • Willing to return to enrolling institution for follow-up (during the Active Monitoring Phase of the study).
  • Willing to follow the requirements of the {Revlimid®/Pomalyst®} REMS program.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Non-secretory MM or known AL amyloidosis.
  • Clinically significant active infection requiring intravenous antibiotics (≤ 14 days prior to registration).
  •  ≥ Grade 3 neuropathy and/or POEMS syndrome (plasma cell dyscrasia with polyneuropathy, organomegaly, endocrinopathy, monoclonal protein, and skin changes).
  • Immunocompromised patients and patients known to be HIV positive and currently receiving antiretroviral therapy.
    • NOTE: Patients known to be HIV positive, but without clinical evidence of an immuno-compromised state, are eligible for this trial.
  • Concurrent therapy considered investigational.
    • NOTE: Patients must not be planning to receive any radiation therapy (except localized radiation for palliative care that must be completed prior to starting Cycle 1, Day 1).
  • Any of the following because this study involves an investigational agent whose genotoxic, mutagenic and teratogenic effects on the developing fetus and newborn are unknown:
    • Pregnant women;
    • Nursing women (lactating females are eligible provided that they agree not to breast feed while taking lenalidomide);
    • Men or women of childbearing potential who are unwilling to employ adequate contraception.
  • Other active malignancy ≤ 3 years prior to registration.
    • Adequately treated basal cell or squamous cell skin cancer;
    • Any in situ cancer;
    • Adequately treated Stage I or II cancer from which the patient is currently in complete remission; or
    • NOTE: If there is a history of prior malignancy, they must not be receiving other specific treatment for their cancer.
  • Major surgery ≤ 4 weeks prior to registration.
  • History of stroke/intracranial hemorrhage ≤6 months prior to registration.
  • Clinically significant cardiac illness including New York Heart Association (NYHA) Class III or Class IV heart failure (Appendix III), unstable angina pectoris, myocardial infarction within the past 6 months, or ≥ Grade 3 cardiac arrhythmias noted ≤ 14 days prior to registration.
  • Currently active, clinically significant hepatic impairment Child-Pugh class B or C according to the Child Pugh classification (see Appendix VI).
  • Exhibiting clinical signs of meningeal involvement of multiple myeloma.
  • Known severe chronic obstructive pulmonary disease or asthma defined as forced expiratory volume (FEV1) in 1 second < 60% of expected.
  • Prior exposure to elotuzumanb.
  • Prior history of disease refractory to pomalidomide.
  • Co-morbid systemic illnesses or other severe concurrent disease which, in the judgment of the investigator, would make the patient inappropriate for entry into this study or interfere significantly with the proper assessment of safety and toxicity of the prescribed regimens.
  • Uncontrolled intercurrent illness including, but not limited to:ongoing or active infection symptomatic congestive heart failure unstable angina pectoris cardiac arrhythmia or psychiatric illness/social situations that would limit compliance with study requirements.
