Phase 1 / 2 Trial of Idasanutlin in Combination with Ixazomib and Dexamethasone in Patients with 17p Deleted, Relapsed Multiple Myeloma


This phase I/II trial studies the side effects and best dose of idasanutlin and ixazomib citrate when given together with dexamethasone in treating patients with multiple myeloma that has returned after a period of improvement. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as idasanutlin and 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. Ixazomib citrate may stop the growth of cancer cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Giving idasanutlin, ixazomib citrate, and dexamethasone together may work better in treating patients with multiple myeloma.

Am I Eligible?

The following criteria is a partial list of reasons why patients may or may not be eligible to participate in this clinical trial. Further evaluation with a medical professional will be required to determine full eligibility.

The following criteria is provided for health care professionals.

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Diagnosis of multiple myeloma (MM) with deletion 17p (del17p) or monosomy 17 by fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) who have received at least one line of therapy
  • Calculated creatinine clearance (using Cockcroft-Gault equation) >= 30 mL/min
  • Aspartate aminotransferase (AST) (serum glutamic oxaloacetic transaminase [SGOT]) and alanine aminotransferase (ALT) (serum glutamate pyruvate transaminase [SGPT]) =< 3.0 x upper limit of normal (ULN)
  • Total bilirubin =< 1.5 × the upper limit of the normal range (ULN)
  • Absolute neutrophil count (ANC) >= 1500/mm^3
  • Platelet count >= 75,000/mm^3
  • Hemoglobin >= 8.0 g/dL
  • NOTE: white blood count and platelet count criteria must be met without any transfusion or growth factor support
  • Patients with measurable disease defined as at least one of the following:
    • Serum monoclonal protein >= 1.0 g/dL by protein electrophoresis
    • > 200 mg of monoclonal protein in the urine on 24-hour electrophoresis
    • Serum immunoglobulin free light chain >= 10 mg/dL AND abnormal serum immunoglobulin kappa to lambda free light chain ratio
  • Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status (PS) 0, 1 or 2
  • Ability to understand the purpose and risks of the study and provide signed and dated informed consent and authorization to use protected health information
  • Negative pregnancy test done =< 7 days prior to registration, for women of childbearing potential only
  • Willing to follow strict birth control measures as suggested below
    • Female patients: if they are of childbearing potential (except if postmenopausal for at least 1 year before the screening visit, OR are surgically sterile), agree to one of the following:
      • Agree to practice true abstinence when this is in line with the preferred and usual lifestyle of the subject; (periodic abstinence [eg, calendar, ovulation, symptothermal, post-ovulation methods] and withdrawal are not acceptable methods of contraception)
      • Practice 2 effective methods of contraception, at the same time, from the time of signing the informed consent form through 90 days after the last dose of study drug, OR
      • Male patients: even if surgically sterilized (ie, status post-vasectomy), must agree to one of the following:
        • Agree to practice effective barrier contraception during the entire study treatment period and through 90 days after the last dose of study drug, OR
        • Agree to practice true abstinence when this is in line with the preferred and usual lifestyle of the subject; (periodic abstinence [eg, calendar, ovulation, symptothermal, post-ovulation methods] and withdrawal are not acceptable methods of contraception)
  • Willing to return to enrolling institution for follow-up (during the Active Monitoring Phase of the study)
  • Willing to provide bone marrow and blood samples for correlative research purposes

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Other malignancy requiring active therapy
    • EXCEPTIONS: Non-melanoma skin cancer, ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) or carcinoma-in-situ of the cervix
      • NOTE: if there is a history of prior malignancy, they must not be receiving other specific treatment for their cancer
  • Other co-morbidity which would interfere with patient's ability to participate in trial, e.g. uncontrolled infection, uncompensated heart or lung disease
  • Other concurrent chemotherapy, radiotherapy, or any ancillary therapy considered investigational
    • NOTE: bisphosphonates are considered to be supportive care rather than therapy, and are thus allowed while on protocol treatment
  • Patient has >= grade 2 peripheral neuropathy, or grade 1 with pain on clinical examination during the screening period
  • Major surgery =< 14 days before study registration
  • All cytochrome P450 family 2 subfamily C member 8 (CYP2C8) inhibitors, inducers, and substrates should be discontinued >= 7 days prior to registration; systemic treatment with CYP2C8 inhibitors (anastrozole, montelukast, quercetin, trimethoprim, gemfibrozil, rosiglitazone, pioglitazone), inducers (carbamazepine, phenytoin, rifabutin, rifampin), or substrates (amiodarone, repaglinide, rosiglitazone, sorafenib, torsemide) should be discontinued >= 7 days prior to registration
  • Systemic treatment with strong inhibitors of cytochrome P450 family 3 subfamily A member 4 (CYP3A4) (clarithromycin, telithromycin, itraconazole, voriconazole, ketoconazole, nefazodone, posaconazole) or strong CYP3A4 inducers (rifampin, rifapentine, rifabutin, carbamazepine, phenytoin, phenobarbital, Gingko biloba, St. John's wort) are not allowed =< 14 days before registration

  • Corrected QT (QTc) > 470 milliseconds (msec) on a 12-lead ECG obtained during the Screening period
    • Note: If a machine reading is above this value, the ECG should be reviewed by a qualified reader and confirmed on a subsequent ECG
  • Known human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) positive
  • Known hepatitis B surface antigen-positive status, or known or suspected active hepatitis C infection
