A Phase 2 Study Comparing Daratumumab in Combination with Carfilzomib and Dexamethasone compared with Carfilzomib and Dexamethasone in Participants with Multiple Myeloma Who Have Been Previously Treated with Daratumumab



The purpose of this clinical trial is to determine the safety and efficacy when an investigational medicine is given for a second time to participants with multiple myeloma. This study will also compare the safety and efficacy of the investigational medicine combined with carfilzomib and dexamethasone versus carfilzomib and dexamethasone alone.

Am I Eligible?

The following criteria is a partial list of reasons why patients may or may not be eligible to participate in this clinical trial. Further evaluation with a medical professional will be required to determine full eligibility.

The following criteria is provided for health care professionals.

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Evidence of a response (partial response or better based on investigator's determination of response by International Myeloma Working Group [IMWG] criteria) to daratumumab-containing therapy with response duration of at least 4 months
  • Participants must have progressed from or be refractory to their last line of treatment. Relapsed or refractory disease as defined as: a) Relapsed disease is defined as an initial response to previous treatment, followed by confirmed progressive disease (PD) by IMWG criteria greater than (>) 60 days after cessation of treatment. b) Refractory disease is defined as less than (<) 25 percent (%) reduction in M-protein or confirmed PD by IMWG criteria during previous treatment or >60 days after cessation of treatment
  • Received 1 to 3 prior line(s) of treatment of which one contained daratumumab, and completed daratumumab at least 3 months prior to randomization. A single line of therapy may consist of 1 or more agents, and may include induction, hematopoietic stem cell transplantation, and maintenance therapy. Radiotherapy, bisphosphonate, or a single short course of corticosteroids (no more than the equivalent of dexamethasone 40 milligram per day [mg/day] for 4 days) would not be considered prior lines of therapy
  • Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) Performance Status score of 0, 1, or 2
  • Women of childbearing potential must have a negative urine or serum pregnancy test at screening within 14 days prior to randomization

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Previous treatment with daratumumab within the last 3 months prior to randomization
  • Discontinuation of daratumumab due to a daratumumab-related adverse event (AE)
  • History of malignancy (other than multiple myeloma) unless all treatment of that malignancy was completed at least 2 years before consent and the patient has no evidence of disease. Further exceptions are squamous and basal cell carcinomas of the skin and carcinoma in situ of the cervix, or breast, or other non-invasive lesion, that in the opinion of the investigator, with concurrence with the sponsor's medical monitor, is considered cured with minimal risk of recurrence within 3 years
  • Allergies, hypersensitivity, or intolerance to daratumumab, hyaluronidase, monoclonal antibodies (mAbs), human proteins, or their excipients, or known sensitivity to mammalian-derived products. Known history of allergy to Captisol (a cyclodextrin derivative used to solubilize carfilzomib)
  • Participant is: a) Known to be seropositive for human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) with one or more of the following: not receiving highly active antiretroviral therapy (ART), had a change in ART within 6 months of the start of screening, receiving ART that may interfere with study treatment, cluster of differentiation (CD)4 count <350 (unit: cells per cubic millimeter of blood) at screening, acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS)-defining opportunistic infection within 6 months of start of screening, and not agreeing to start ART and be on ART >4 weeks plus having HIV viral load <400 copies/milliliters (mL) at end of 4-week period (to ensure ART is tolerated and HIV controlled. b) Seropositive for hepatitis B (defined by a positive test for hepatitis B surface antigen [HBsAg]). Participants with resolved infection (example: participants who are HBsAg negative but positive for antibodies to hepatitis B core antigen [anti-HBc] and/or antibodies to hepatitis B surface antigen [anti-HBs]) must be screened using real-time polymerase chain reaction (PCR) measurement of hepatitis B virus (HBV) deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) levels. Those who are PCR positive will be excluded. c) Known to be seropositive for hepatitis C (except in the setting of a sustained virologic response [SVR], defined as aviremia at least 12 weeks after completion of antiviral therapy)
