Cancer Sequencing Guided Personalized and Precision Medicine Platform in Multiple Myeloma PRECISION MEDICINE STUDY

What's the purpose of this trial?

This will be a 2 year study to evaluate and improve cancer sequencing as applied to the characterization of tumor molecular make-up and the identification of novel therapeutics (n=100). Participants who will undergo tumor biopsy for management of multiple myeloma (MM) will self-refer to the study or be referred by their treating physician. Participants will initially meet with a clinician to review study consents and provide medical, medication, and family history information. After informed consent, biospecimen samples from peripheral blood, cheek swab, and tumor samples from bone marrow (aspirate and biopsy), peripheral blood, or any mass/fluid containing tumor cells will be obtained (from procedures indicated as part of their standard oncology care) for cancer sequencing (CS) (whole exome sequencing of germline and tumor genomes, RNA sequencing of tumor transcriptome, single cell, and CyTOF analysis). CS data will be interpreted via somatic variation identification, network modeling, and cancer transcriptome profiling to facilitate mapping activity levels of genes to networks and for identifying genes activated or dysregulated in cancer cells. Sequencing and analysis will be performed at the Genomics Core Facility at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. In instances where internal sequencing capabilities do not allow for certain types of analysis, de-identified samples or data may be sent out to third parties for additional analysis. The study will be using GenPath, a division of BioReference® Health, LLC for this project which is a CLIA certified lab. All genetic tests will be performed in a CLIA certified lab and all tests will be FDA or NYS approved. The RNA Sequencing test will receive NYS Department of Health (Wadsworth Center) approval before results are provided to physicians and patients. Samples will be de-identified and processed by the Mount Sinai Human Immune Monitoring Core (HIMC) before being sent to an external CLIA-certified lab for sequencing and analysis. Interpretation will be performed by a multidisciplinary team that includes genomicists, pathologists, and clinicians familiar with the particular cancer diagnosed in the participant. Once results are available, they will be shared with the participant and treating physician during a follow-up results session and any findings obtained explained. This study is not intended to implement findings, only to report them.

This is an upcoming trial that has not yet started accepting patients.

What will happen during the trial?

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:

* Patients must be 18 years of age at the time of registration.
* Participant must have an established diagnosis of relapsed Multiple Myeloma based on IMWG criteria, be willing to participate, and able to consent
* Participant must have a treating physician who agrees to participate in the study
* Participant will be undergoing a bone marrow biopsy or tumor biopsy as part of their standard of care.
* Patients must be willing to participate in this study and able to sign informed consent.
* Participants are not participating in any interventional clinical trial using systemic therapy directed towards control of MM.

Exclusion Criteria

* Known diagnosis of AL amyloidosis, Waldenstrom Macroglobulinemia, POEMS, or Castleman┬┤s disease.
* Diagnosis of cancer other than myeloma or skin cancer (squamous cell or basal cell) that is ongoing or treated within the last 2 years.
* Tumor sample inadequate or unavailable for analysis (e.g., due to insufficient number of tumor cells).
* Patient will not be receiving systemic MM-directed chemotherapy/immunotherapy in the following 2 months from the time tumor biopsy is performed.
