Iberdomide, Daratumumab, Bortezomib, and Dexamethasone for the Treatment of Newly Diagnosed Multiple Myeloma, IDEAL Study IDEAL

What's the purpose of this trial?

This phase I/II trial studies the side effects and best dose of iberdomide and how well it works in combination with daratumumab, bortezomib, and dexamethasone in treating patients with newly diagnosed multiple myeloma. Immunotherapy with iberdomide, may induce changes in body's immune system and may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Daratumumab is a monoclonal antibody that may interfere with the ability of cancer cells to grow and spread. Bortezomib may stop the growth of cancer cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Chemotherapy drugs, such as dexamethasone, work in different ways to stop the growth of cancer cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Giving iberdomide in combination with daratumumab, bortezomib, and dexamethasone may kill more cancer cells in patients with newly diagnosed multiple myeloma.

This trial is currently open and accepting patients.
