A Study of Melflufen in Combination With Dexamethasone in Relapsed Refractory Multiple Myeloma Patients


This study will evaluate melflufen in combination with dexamethasone in the treatment of relapsed refractory multiple myeloma in adult patients with disease refractory to pomalidomide and/or daratumumab. All patients in the study will be treated with melflufen on Day 1 and dexamethasone on Days 1, 8, 15 and 22 of each 28-day cycle.
