A Study of Belantamab Mafodotin and Nirogacestat in People With Multiple Myeloma That Has Not Responded to Treatment or Has Come Back After Treatment

What's the purpose of this trial?

The purpose of this study is to find out whether combination treatment with the study drugsbelantamab mafodotin and nirogacestat is a safe treatment for people who have relapsed orrefractory multiple myeloma. The researchers will test different doses of belantamab mafodotinto find the safest dose to give with nirogacestat. They also want to find out whetherbelantamab mafodotin plus nirogacestat is an effective treatment for this type of bone marrowcancer, and will do tests that show whether the study treatment slows or stops the growth ofcancer.

This trial is currently open and accepting patients.

  • 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 a nearly undetected pregnancy.
  • Male participants: Male participants are eligible to participate if they agree to the following during the intervention period and for 6 months after the last dose of study treatment to allow for clearance of any altered sperm: Male patients must use a condom when having sexual intercourse with a woman of childbearing potential(WOCBP) while receiving treatment with nirogacestat and for at least 6 months after the last dose.
