A Study to Evaluate the Safety, Tolerance and Anti-tumor Activity of SAR442257 in Patients with Relapsed/Refractory Multiple Myeloma and Relapsed/Refractory Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma


About this study

The primary purpose of this study is to determine the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) of SAR442257 administered as a single agent in patients with relapsed and refractory multiple myeloma (RRMM) and refractory non-Hodgkin lymphoma (RR-NHL), and determine the recommended Phase 2 dose (RP2D). 

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.

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Participant must be at least 18 years of age or of the country's legal age of majority if the legal age is > 18 years old, at the time of signing the informed consent.
  • Life expectancy of at least 12 weeks.
  • Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status ≤ 2.

RRMM Patients:

  • Must have received at least 3 prior lines of therapy including proteasome inhibitor (PI), immunomodulatory agent (IMiD), and anti-CD38 mAb;
  • Must have received their last dose of prior anti-CD38 therapy within 12 months prior to the first dose of SAR442257;
  • Must be refractory to anti-CD38 antibody (e.g., daratumumab or isatuximab), characterized by progression within 60 days of the last dose of anti-CD38, regardless of which line it was given;
  • Must be either relapsed or refractory to all established therapies with known clinical benefit in RRMM where approved and available, or are intolerant to those established therapies, based upon investigator’s clinical judgement;
  • Must not be candidates for regimens known to provide clinical benefit based upon investigator’s clinical judgement.
  • Patients with RRMM must have measurable disease as per the following:
    • Serum M protein ≥ 0.5 g/dL (≥ 5 g/L); or
    • Urine M protein ≥ 200 mg/24 hours; or
    • Serum free light chain (FLC) assay: involved FLC assay ≥ 10 mg/dL and an abnormal serum FLC ratio (< 0.26 or > 1.65).
  • Patients with RR-NHL must be relapsed or refractory to all established therapies with known clinical benefit where approved and available, or are intolerant to those established therapies.
  • Patients with RR-NHL must have measurable disease of at least one lesion ≥ 1.5 cm as documented by computed tomography (CT) scan, including the following subtype of disease:
    • Diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL);
    • Transformed follicular lymphoma (tFL);
    • Follicular lymphoma (FL);
    • Mantle cell lymphoma (MCL);
    • Marginal zone lymphoma (MZL);
    • Lymphoplasmacytic lymphoma;
    • Small lymphocytic lymphoma (SLL).

  • Patients with lymphoma must have availability of lymphoma tissue for biomarker testing: either archived tissue or a fresh biopsy as a part of screening. On-treatment biopsy (Cycle 2 or beyond) is also expected if disease location is in a superficial lymph node. Excisional biopsy or resected tissue is required if clinically feasible; otherwise, core needle biopsy is acceptable. Fine needle aspirates are not acceptable.
  • Patients with lymphoma must have a ≥ 50% left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) and no pericardial effusion, as measured by echocardiogram (ECHO).
  • Contraceptive use by men or women should be consistent with local regulations regarding the methods of contraception for those participating in clinical studies.
  • Male participants are eligible to participate if they agree to the following starting from the time of informed consent, during the treatment period, and for at least 180 days after the last dose of study intervention:
    • Refrain from donating sperm.  Plus either: Be abstinent from heterosexual intercourse (abstinent on a long term and persistent basis) and agree to remain abstinent; OR
    • Must agree to use contraception/barrier;
    • Agree to use a male condom when having sexual intercourse with a woman of childbearing potential who is not currently pregnant;
    • Female participants A female participant is eligible to participate if she is not pregnant or breastfeeding, and at least one of the following conditions applies:
    • Is not a woman of childbearing potential; OR
    • Is a woman of childbearing potential and agrees to use two highly effective contraceptive methods with a failure rate of < 1% per year starting from the time of informed consent, during the treatment period, and for at least 180 days after the last dose of study intervention;
    • A woman of childbearing potential must have a negative highly sensitive pregnancy test (serum) within 7 days before the first dose of study intervention.
  • The investigator is responsible for review of medical history, menstrual history, and recent sexual activity to decrease the risk for inclusion of a woman with an early undetected pregnancy.
  • Capable of giving signed informed consent of the protocol which includes compliance with the requirements and restrictions listed in the informed consent form (ICF) and in this protocol.
