Study of Initial Treatment With Elotuzumab, Carfilzomib, Lenalidomide and Dexamethasone in Multiple Myeloma


This study will be a multi-center, open-label, Phase 2 study where newly diagnosed Multiple Myeloma requiring systemic chemotherapy will be eligible for enrollment. A total of 55 subjects will be enrolled. Time to progression or death will be calculated from the date of first treatment on protocol until the date of disease progression or death from any cause. Patients can expect to participate between 12-24 cycles. The primary endpoint will be the rate of response by next generation gene sequencing at the end of 8 cycles among non-transplant candidates and transplant candidates who agreed to defer transplant.

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:

  • Subjects must meet all of the following inclusion criteria to be eligible to enroll in this study. No enrollment waivers will be granted.

    1. Newly diagnosed, previously untreated myeloma requiring systemic chemotherapy

      a. Prior treatment of hypercalcemia or spinal cord compression or active and/or aggressively progressing myeloma with corticosteroids and/or lenalidomide and/or bortezomib/PI-based regimens does not disqualify the subject (the corticosteroid treatment dose should not exceed the equivalent of 160 mg of dexamethasone in a 4 week period or not more than 1 cycle of lenalidomide and/or PI-based therapy)

    2. Both transplant and non-transplant candidates are eligible.
    3. Diagnosis of symptomatic multiple myeloma as per current IMWG uniform criteria prior to initial treatment
    4. Monoclonal plasma cells in the BM 10% or presence of a biopsy-proven plasmacytoma
    5. Measurable disease, prior to initial treatment as indicated by one or more of the following:
      1. Serum M-protein ≥ 1 g/dL
      2. Urine M-protein ≥ 200 mg/24 hours
      3. If serum protein electrophoresis is felt to be unreliable for routine M-protein measurement, then quantitative immunoglobulin levels are acceptable (≥ 1 g/dL)
    6. Screening laboratory values must meet the following criteria and should be obtained within 21 days prior to enrollment WBC ≥ 2000/µL Platelets ≥ 75 x103/µL ANC >1000/µL Hemoglobin > 8.0 g/dL Serum creatinine ≤ 1.5 x ULN or creatinine clearance (CrCl) ≥ 50 mL/min
    7. Males and females ≥ 18 years of age
    8. ECOG performance status of 0-1
    9. Females of childbearing potential (FCBP) must have 2 negative pregnancy tests (sensitivity of at least 50 mIU/mL) prior to initiating lenalidomide. The first pregnancy test must be performed within 10-14 days before and the second pregnancy test must be performed within 24 hours before lenalidomide is prescribed for Cycle 1 (prescriptions must be filled within 7 days).
    10. FCBP must agree to use 2 reliable forms of contraception simultaneously or to practice complete abstinence from heterosexual intercourse during the following time periods related to this study: 1) for at least 28 days before starting lenalidomide; 2) while participating in the study; and 3) for at least 28 days after discontinuation from the study.
    11. Male subjects must agree to use a latex condom during sexual contact with females of childbearing potential while participating in the study and for at least 28 days following discontinuation from the study even if he has undergone a successful vasectomy.
    12. All study participants in the US must be consented to and registered into the mandatory Revlimid REMS program and be willing and able to comply with the requirements of Revlimid REMS.
    13. Voluntary written informed consent

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Subjects meeting any of the following exclusion criteria are not eligible to enroll in this study. No enrollment waivers will be granted.

    1. Non-secretory or hyposecretory multiple myeloma, prior to initial treatment defined as <1.0 g/dL M-protein in serum, <200 mg/24 hr urine M-protein, and no measurable disease as per IMWG by Freelite.
    2. POEMS syndrome (polyneuropathy, organomegaly, endocrinopathy, monoclonal protein, and skin changes)

    4. Known or suspected Amyloidosis
    5. Plasma cell leukemia
    6. Within 4 weeks since any plasmapheresis
    7. Within 3 weeks of any corticosteroids except per inclusion criteria #2
    8. Waldenström's macroglobulinemia or IgM myeloma
    9. Participation in an investigational therapeutic study within 3 weeks or within 5 drug half-lives (t1/2) prior to first dose, whichever time is greater
    10. Subjects not able to tolerate elotuzumab, lenalidomide, carfilzomib, or dexamethasone

      • uncontrolled cardiac arrhythmia (NCI CTCAE Version 4 Grade 2:2) or clinically significant ECG abnormalities
      • screening 12-lead ECG showing a baseline QT interval as corrected by Fridericia's formula (QTcF) >470 msec
    20. Uncontrolled HTN 14 days prior to enrollment
