A Study of Outpatient Administration of Teclistamab, a BCMA-targeting Bispecific Antibody, in Multiple Myeloma Patients TECLISTAMAB

What's the purpose of this trial?

This is a phase II study to evaluate the Outpatient Administration of Teclistamab in Multiple Myeloma Patients

This trial is currently open and accepting patients.

What will happen during the trial?

This is a single-arm, non-randomized, multicenter, prospective study of Teclistamab (TECVAYLI™), in adult patients with RRMM, in the post-marketing setting. Teclistamab (TECVAYLI™), the humanized IgG-4 PAA bispecific antibody, targets the CD3 receptor complex on T cells and BCMA on B-lineage cells.

This study will investigate the use of prophylactic tocilizumab to reduce the incidence and severity of CRS associated with teclistamab administration, to enable administration of the step-up dosing regimen of teclistamab in an outpatient setting.

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.

A partner of childbearing potential must also be practicing a highly effective method of contraception.
* A participant must sign an ICF indicating that participant understands the purpose of, and procedures required for, the study and is willing to participate in the study.
* A participant is required to stay within 30 minutes of transportation to the site and remain in the company of a competent adult at all times until 48 hours following administration of all doses within the teclistamab step-up dosing schedule (step-up doses 1 and 2 and the first treatment dose) (approximately 10 days).
* A participant must agree to carry the study participant identification wallet card at all times.
* A participant must comply with all the protocol requirement procedures, including measuring and recording of body temperature and blood oxygen saturation twice daily (≥8 hours apart) during the first 2 cycles of teclistamab treatment and coming to the study site for safety assessments.
* A participant and the accompanying competent adult must be made aware of the presenting sign sand symptoms of teclistamab-associated toxicities, including but not limited to CRS, ICANS, infections, etc. The accompanying competent adult must watch the participant at all times for teclistamab-associated toxicities, until 48 hours after the first treatment dose of teclistamab

Exclusion Criteria:

* Has high tumor burden, defined as having ≥60% plasma cell infiltrate on the bone marrow biopsy or aspirate, whichever is higher, or with multiple extramedullary disease sites or plasmacytomas.
* Has a rapidly progressing disease per investigator assessment.
* Has plasma cell leukemia (\>2.0×10\^9/L plasma cells by standard differential), Waldenström's macroglobulinemia, POEMS syndrome (polyneuropathy, organomegaly, endocrinopathy, monoclonal protein, and skin changes), or primary amyloid light-chain amyloidosis.
* Has known active CNS involvement or exhibits clinical signs of meningeal involvement of MM.
* Has risk factors for developing clinically significant TLS and requiring management with increased hydration, allopurinol, or rasburicase.
* Has myelodysplastic syndrome or active malignancies (ie, progressing or requiring treatment change in the last 12 months) other than RRMM. The only allowed exceptions are:

Any malignancy that was not progressing nor requiring treatment change in the last 12 months.

Malignancies treated within the last 12 months and considered at very low risk for recurrence:

Non-muscle invasive bladder cancer (solitary Ta-PUNLMP or low grade, \<3 cm, no CIS).

Skin cancer (non-melanoma or melanoma). Noninvasive cervical cancer. Breast cancer: adequately treated lobular carcinoma in situ or ductal carcinoma in situ, localized breast cancer and receiving antihormonal agents.

Localized prostate cancer (M0, N0) with a Gleason Score ≤7a, treated locally only (RP/RT/focal treatment).

Other malignancy that is considered at minimal risk of recurrence.

* Has Grade ≥3 hematologic AEs or Grade ≥3, clinically significant non-hematologic AEs.
* Has fever or active infection (bacterial, viral, or uncontrolled systemic fungal) at time of study enrollment.
* Has active autoimmune disease or a documented history of autoimmune disease with the exception of vitiligo, type I diabetes, and prior autoimmune thyroiditis that is currently euthyroid based on clinical symptoms and laboratory testing.
* Has clinically significant coagulopathy that would increase the risk of bleeding in the setting of cytopenia.
* Shows a deterioration in neurologic status, including mental status changes such as confusion or increased somnolence.
* Has psychiatric disorders (eg, alcohol or drug abuse), dementia, or altered mental status that would compromise the ability to provide informed consent or comply with the clinical protocol.

* Has hepatitis B infection (ie, HBsAg or HBV-DNA positive). In the event the infection status is unclear, quantitative viral levels are necessary to determine the infection status.
* Has active hepatitis C infection as measured by positive HCV-RNA testing. Participants with a history of HCV antibody positivity must undergo HCV-RNA testing. If a participant with history of chronic hepatitis C infection (defined as both HCV antibody and HCV-RNA positive) completed antiviral therapy and has undetectable HCV-RNA 12 weeks following the completion of therapy, the participant is eligible for the study.

* Has contraindications to the use of tocilizumab or IVIG per local prescribing information.
* Has received live vaccine(s) within 1 month prior to screening or plans to receive live vaccines during the study.

* Has received an investigational intervention or used an invasive investigational medical device within 14 days before the planned first dose of study treatment or received an investigational biological product within 14 days or 5 half-lives, whichever is longer, before the planned study treatment, or is currently enrolled in an investigational study.
* History of antitumor therapy as follows, before the first dose of study drug:
