You may be able to join this trial if you:

The following criteria is a partial list of reasons why patients may be eligible to participate in this clinical trial. Further evaluation with a medical professional is required.

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status of 0 to 2
  • A confirmed diagnosis of multiple myeloma (must have an M-component in serum and/or urine)

  • Participant has documented relapsed or progressive MM on or after any regimen or who are refractory to the most recent line of therapy.
    • Relapsed MM is defined as previously treated MM that progresses and requires initiation of salvage therapy but does not meet the criteria for refractory MM.

      • Note: A line of therapy consists of greater ≥ 1 complete cycle of a single agent, a regimen consisting of combination of several drugs, or a planned sequential therapy of various regimens. Induction therapy with consolidation and maintenance following stem cell transplant is considered a single line of therapy.
      • Prior treatment with carfilzomib is allowed but the patient must not be considered carfilzomib refractory and not have had carfilzomib within the past 6 months
  • Positivity for t(11;14) by validated fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) testing assay in a pre-defined laboratory
    • Fresh bone marrow aspirate sample must be collected at screening and sent to central laboratory for t(11;14) FISH testing.
  • Adequate organ function defined as:
    • Hemoglobin ≥ 8.0 g/dL, within 7 days before first dose of study treatment, independent of growth factor support and transfusions
    • Platelet count ≥ 75,000/μL, within 7 days before first dose of study treatment, independent of growth factor support and transfusions
    • Absolute neutrophil count (ANC) ≥ 1000/mm3 [ANC = (% of segmented neutrophils + % of segmented bands) x total WBC count within 7 days before first dose of study treatment
    • ALT and AST ≤ 3 x upper limit of normal (ULN) and total bilirubin ≤ 2.0 x ULN Serum creatinine ≤ 1.5 x ULN or creatinine clearance ≥ 45 mL/min/1.73 m2 calculated by the MDRD-6 formula.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Participant has any of the following conditions:
    • Non secretory MM (Serum free light chains < 10 mg/dL)
    • Solitary plasmacytoma
    • Active plasma cell leukemia (ie, either 20% of peripheral white blood cells or > 2.0 x 109/L circulating plasma cells by standard differential)
    • Waldenström macroglobulinemia
    • Amyloidosis.
    • Polyneuropathy, organomegaly, endocrinopathy, monoclonal protein, skin changes (POEMS) syndrome
    • Uncontrolled diabetes (HbA1c > 7% or 53 mmol/mol or requiring insulin at study entry
    • Chronic respiratory disease that requires continuous oxygen
  • Significant cardiovascular disease, including but not limited to:
    • Myocardial infarction ≤ 6 months before screening
    • Ejection fraction ≤ 50%
    • Unstable angina≤ 3 months before screening
    • New York Heart Association Class III or IV congestive heart failure
    • History of clinically significant arrhythmias (eg, sustained ventricular tachycardia, ventricular fibrillation, or torsades de pointes)
    • Heart rate-corrected QT interval > 480 milliseconds based on Fridericia's formula
    • History of Mobitz II second-degree or third-degree heart block without a permanent pacemaker in place
    • Uncontrolled hypertension at screening, defined as systolic blood pressure > 170 mmHg and diastolic blood pressure > 105 mmHg by ≥ 2 consecutive measurements
  • Known infection with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)
  • Serologic status reflecting active viral hepatitis B (HBV) or viral hepatitis C (HCV) infection as follows:
    • Presence of hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg) or hepatitis B core antibody (HBcAb). Participants with presence of HBcAb, but absence of HBsAg, are eligible if HBV DNA is undetectable (limitation of sensitivity < 20 IU/mL) ,), and if they are willing to undergo monthly monitoring for HBV reactivation.
    • Presence of HCV antibody. Participants with presence of HCV antibody are eligible if HCV RNA is undetectable (limitation of sensitivity < 15 IU/mL).
  • Note: Other protocol defined Inclusion/Exclusion criteria may apply.

Sonrotoclax (BGB-11417) in Combination with Dexamethasone for the Treatment of Relapsed/Refractory Multiple Myeloma with t(11;14): Safety, Efficacy, and Determination of Recommended Phase 2 Dose

December 11, 2023

As of May 26, 2023, 19 patients have been enrolled in the 80-, 160-, and 320-mg (n=3 each) and 640-mg (n=10 patients) dose-escalation cohorts. The median age was 68 years (range, 52-81 years). The median prior lines of therapy was 4 (range, 1-12) and 11 patients (58%) failed on a prior anti-CD38 antibody. The most common AEs (>20% of all patients) were insomnia (n=9; 47%), fatigue (n=6; 32%), nausea (n=5; 26%), and arthralgia (n=4; 21%); none of which were severity grade ≥3. Three patients (16%) experienced grade ≥3 treatment-emergent AEs (TEAEs). One patient (33%) in the 160-mg cohort had grade 3 increases in liver enzymes and diarrhea; one patient (10%) in the 640-mg cohort had a grade 3 decrease lymphocyte count and hypokalemia; and one patient (10%) in the 640-mg cohort had grade 3 cataracts and retinal detachment. Three patients experienced COVID-19 (grade 1-2, n=2; grade ≥3, n=1). Three patients experienced TEAEs that led to treatment discontinuation (COVID-19, cancer pain, hematuria; n=1 each). No patient, across all dose levels tested, experienced a DLTs; thus, sonrotoclax 640 mg daily was the determined to be the MAD and the RP2D in combination with dexamethasone.

Four patients (21%) died while on study; however, no deaths were determined by the investigators to be associated with study treatment. One patient died from COVID-19 while receiving study therapy; three additional patients died ≥50 days after treatment discontinuation (COVID, progressive disease, and unknown causes, n=1 each).

With a median treatment duration of 120 days (range, 30-526), ORR was 58%; 11 patients had a PR or better (n=6, PR; n=2, very good PR; n=2, CR; n=1, stringent CR [sCR]; Figure). The ORR for the 640-mg cohort was 70% (n=3, PR; n=2 VGPR; n=1, CR; n=1, sCR). Nine patients remained on treatment; the longest duration of response was 483 days (20 cycles) which, at data cutoff, was still ongoing.
