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 for all subjects:

  • Written informed consent and HIPAA authorization for release of personal health information signed by the subject or his/her legally authorized representative. NOTE: HIPAA authorization may be included in the informed consent or obtained separately.
  • Age greater than or equal to 18 years at the time of consent. Because no dosing or adverse event data are currently available on the use of belantamab mafodotin as a single agent or in combination with KRd in subjects less than 18 years of age, children are excluded from this study.
  • ECOG Performance Status of less than or equal to 2
  • Demonstrate adequate organ function
  • Adequate cardiac function as defined by a greater than 40% left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) by ECHO, cardiac MRI or MUGA
    • Note for subjects in phase II: if a cycle of pre-study induction therapy containing a PI or anthracycline was administered, assessment of the LVEF must be repeated.
  • For those with symptomatic pulmonary disease with Grade 2 or higher symptoms (e.g. COPD, asthma) or other signs / symptoms of pulmonary disease, adequate pulmonary function as defined by a FEV1 greater than or equal to 50% of predicted and DLCO/VA greater than or equal to 50% of predicted
  • Females of childbearing potential (FCBP) must have two negative serum pregnancy tests during screening: the first within 10-14 days prior to first dose of study treatment and the second within 24 hours prior to first dose of study treatment. NOTE: Females are considered of childbearing potential unless they are surgically sterile (have undergone a hysterectomy, bilateral tubal ligation, or bilateral oophorectomy), are amenorrhoeic for less than 2 years without history of a hysterectomy and oophorectomy must have a follicle stimulating hormone value in the postmenopausal range upon screening evaluation; or are postmenopausal (at least 12 consecutive months with no menses without an alternative medical cause).
  • FCBP must be willing to use 2 effective contraceptive methods (at least one that is highly effective) or abstinence starting from the time of informed consent, while on belantamab mafodotin and lenalidomide. If either drug is discontinued, 2 effective forms of contraception should be continued until at least 4 weeks after the last dose of lenalidomide, and 1 form of effective contraception should be continued until 4 months post last dose of belantamab mafodotin. FCBP should use effective contraception or abstinence from consent until 30 days after last treatment with carfilzomib, and males with a partner of childbearing potential must use effective contraception or abstinence for at least 90 days post last dose of carfilzomib.
  • Male subjects must agree to the following from the first dose of study treatment until 6 months after the last dose of belantamab mafodotin, to allow for clearance of altered sperm:

    • Must agree to use effective contraception/barrier as detailed below:
  • Agree to use a male condom, even if they have undergone a successful vasectomy, and female partner of reproductive potential to use an additional highly effective contraceptive method with a failure rate of less than 1% per year 10. FCBP must agree not to donate eggs (ova, oocytes) for the purpose of reproduction during the intervention period and for at least 4 months after the last dose of study intervention belantamab mafodotin, at least 30 days after the last dose of carfilzomib, and at least 4 weeks after the last dose of lenalidomide.
