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 LYNX

What's the purpose of this trial?

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.

This trial is currently open and accepting patients.

What's being studied?

  • Carfilzomib is a proteasome inhibitor that interferes with the growth and spread of cancer cells in the body.
  • Daratumumab is a type of cancer drug called a monoclonal antibody. Daratumumab attaches to a protein called CD38, which is present in high numbers on the surface of multiple myeloma cells, as well as on certain other types of cells, such as red blood cells.
  • Dexamethasone is a steroid given in conjunction with some cancer treatments.

What will happen during the trial?

This study will enroll approximately 230 participants, and last for up to five years. This trial is divided into two different treatment groups (arms). Patients will be separated into the different arms randomly. Both Arm A and Arm B will receive treatment in 28 day cycles.


Patients participating in Arm A will receive:

  • Carfilzomib intravenously on days 1, 8, 15 of each 28 day cycle.
  • Dexamethasone either as a pill or intravenously on days 1, 8, 15, 22 of cycles 1-9, and days 1, 8, 15 of cycles 10+.


Patients participating in Arm B will receive:

  • Carfilzomib intravenously on days 1, 8, 15 of each 28 day cycle.
  • Dexamethasone either as a pill or intravenously on days 1, 8, 15, 22 of cycles 1-9, and days 1, 8, 15 of cycles 10 onward.
  • Daratumumab by subcutaneous injection, on days 1, 8, 15, 22 of cycles 1-2, days 1, 15 of cycles 3-6, and day 1 for cycles 7 onward.
