Belantamab Mafodotin, Lenalidomide, and Daratumumab for the Treatment of Relapsed, Refractory, or Previously Untreated Multiple Myeloma


This phase I/II trial studies the best dose and effect of belantamab mafodotin given together with lenalidomide and daratumumab in treating patients with multiple myeloma that has come back (relapsed), does not respond to treatment (refractory) or for which the patient has not received treatment in the past (previously untreated). Belantamab mafodotin is a monoclonal antibody, called belantamab, linked to a chemotherapy drug, called mafodotin. Belantamab is a form of targeted therapy because it attaches to specific molecules (receptors) on the surface of cancer cells, known as BCMA receptors, and delivers mafodotin to kill them. Lenalidomide is an immunomodulatory drug (altering the immune effects on the tumor cell). Daratumumab is a drug that is a monoclonal antibody that is directed towards a protein on the myeloma cell. Giving belantamab mafodotin together with lenalidomide and daratumumab may kill more cancer cells.

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:

  • Age >= 18 years
  • Phase I: Relapsed or refractory multiple myeloma with at least one prior line of therapy that includes a proteasome inhibitor and an immunomodulatory drug. Patient should be refractory or intolerant to lenalidomide
  • Phase II: Previously untreated multiple myeloma (diagnosed by International Myeloma Working Group [IMWG] criteria) or have received no more than one cycle of Standard of Care treatment regimen
  • Note: Prior radiation therapy for the treatment of solitary plasmacytoma is permitted. Prior therapy with clarithromycin, dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA), anakinra, pamidronate or zoledronic acid is permitted. Any additional agents not listed must be approved by the principal investigator

  • Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status (PS) 0, 1 or 2
  • Hemoglobin >= 9.0 g/dL (obtained =< 14 days prior to registration)
  • Absolute neutrophil count (ANC) >= 1200/mm^3 (obtained =< 14 days prior to registration)
  • Platelet count >= 100,000/mm^3 (obtained =< 14 days prior to registration)
  • Total bilirubin =< 1.5 x upper limit of normal (ULN) (obtained =< 14 days prior to registration)
  • Alanine aminotransferase (ALT) and aspartate transaminase (AST) =< 2.5 x ULN (=< 5 x ULN for patients with liver involvement) (obtained =< 14 days prior to registration)
  • Prothrombin time (PT)/International Normalized Ratio (INR)/activated partial thromboplastin time (aPTT) =< 1.5 x ULN OR if patient is receiving anticoagulant therapy and INR or aPTT is within target range of therapy (obtained =< 14 days prior to registration)
  • Calculated creatinine clearance >= 30 ml/min using the Cockcroft-Gault formula (obtained =< 14 days prior to registration)
  • Female participants: Female participant is eligible to participate if she is not pregnant or breast feeding, and at least one of the following conditions applies:
    • Is not a woman of childbearing potential (WOCBP) OR
    • Due to lenalidomide being a thalidomide analogue with risk for embryofetal toxicity and prescribed under a pregnancy prevention/controlled distribution program, and bortezomib having the potential to cause fetal harm, WOCBP participants will be eligible if they commit to either:
      • Abstain continuously from heterosexual sexual intercourse as their preferred and usual lifestyle (abstinent on a long term and persistent basis) and agree to remain abstinent OR
      • To use birth control as follows:
        • Two methods of reliable birth control (one method that is highly effective and one additional effective (barrier) method), beginning 4 weeks prior to initiating treatment with lenalidomide, during therapy, during dose interruptions and continuing for 4 weeks following discontinuation of lenalidomide treatment. Thereafter, WOCBP participants must use one method of reliable birth control that is highly effective for a further 4 months following discontinuation of belantamab mafodotin or a further 2 months after discontinuation of daratumumab. WOCBP must also agree not to donate eggs (ova, oocytes) for the purpose of reproduction during treatment, during dose interruptions and for 28-days following the last dose of lenalidomide, or 4 months following discontinuation of belantamab mafodotin treatment, whichever is longer.
          • Note: 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
  • Male participants: Male participants are eligible to participate if they agree to the following from the time of first dose of study treatment until 28-days after the last dose of lenalidomide, or 6 months after the last dose of belantamab mafodotin, whichever is longer, to allow for clearance of any altered sperm:
    • Refrain from donating sperm PLUS either
    • Be abstinent from heterosexual intercourse as their preferred and usual lifestyle (abstinent on a long term and persistent basis) and agree to remain abstinent OR
    • Must agree to use contraception/barrier as detailed below:
      • Agree to use a male condom, even if they have undergone a successful vasectomy, and female partner to use an additional highly effective contraceptive method with a failure rate of < 1% per year as when having sexual intercourse with a woman of childbearing potential (including pregnant females)
  • Ability to understand the study procedures and provide written informed consent
  • Negative hepatitis B test (defined by a negative test for hepatitis B surface antigen [HBsAg], or antibodies to hepatitis B surface and/or core antigens [antiHBs or antiHBc])
