Phase 1/2 clinical trial evaluating the safety and tolerability of venetoclax combined with daratumumab and dexamethasone with or without bortezomib in relapsed or refractory multiple myeloma.



The goal of this clinical trial is to determine if the combination of venetoclax, daratumumab and dexamethasone (with or without bortezomib) is safe and tolerable in patients with relapsed or refractory 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:

  • Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status <= 2.
  • Participant has relapsed or refractory multiple myeloma with documented evidence of progression that occurred during or after the participant's last treatment regimen based on investigator's determination of International Myeloma Working Group (IMWG) criteria.
  • Measurable disease confirmed by central lab at Screening, defined by at least 1 of the following: Serum M-protein >= 1.0 g/dL (>= 10 g/L), OR Urine M-protein >= 200 mg/24 hours, OR Serum free light chain (FLC) >= 10 mg/dL, provided serum FLC ratio is abnormal in participants who do not have measurable disease by Serum Protein Electrophoresis (SPEP) or Urine Protein Electrophoresis (UPEP) criteria.
  • Participant has received previous multiple myeloma treatment as defined in the protocol.
  • Bone marrow aspirate samples have been collected.
  • To qualify for Part 1 and 3, the participant must be t(11;14) positive as determined by an analytically validated Fluorescent In Situ Hybridization (FISH) assay per central laboratory testing.
  • Participants must have adequate hematologic, renal and hepatic function.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Previous treatment with venetoclax or other B-Cell Lymphoma 2 (BCL-2) inhibitor
  • For participants in Parts 1 and 2: Previous treatment with daratumumab or other anti-CD38 therapy. For participants in Part 3: Prior daratumumab or other anti-CD38 antibody therapy exposure that meets ANY of the following criteria:

    • Failure to achieve at least a PR to most recent therapy with daratumumab or other anti-CD38 therapy.
    • Daratumumab or other anti-CD38 antibody therapy was discontinued due to toxicity.
    • Relapse within 60 days of intensive treatment (at least every other week) of daratumumab or other anti-CD38 antibody therapy.
    • Prior treatment with daratumumab or other anti-CD38 antibody within 6 months prior to first dose of study drug.
  • For participants in Part 2 and 3:

    • Participant is refractory to any proteasome inhibitor, defined as progression on or within 60 days of the last dose of a proteasome inhibitor-containing regimen.
    • Participant has had prior treatment with proteasome inhibitor within 60 days prior to first dose of study drug.
  • Treatment with anti-myeloma chemotherapy, radiotherapy, biological, immunotherapy or an investigational therapy, including targeted small molecule agents within 2 weeks or 5 half-lives (whichever is longer and/or applicable) before first dose.
  • Treatment with anti-myeloma monoclonal antibodies within 6 weeks prior to first dose.
  • Recent corticosteroid therapy at a cumulative dose equivalent to >= 140 mg of prednisone, cumulative dose equivalent to >= 40 mg of dexamethasone, or a single dose equivalent to >= 40 mg of dexamethasone within 2 weeks prior the first dose of study drug.
  • Known central nervous system involvement of multiple myeloma.
  • Significant history of medical conditions as listed in the protocol.
  • History of other active malignancies including myelodysplatic syndromes (MDS) within the past 3 years with the exceptions of:

    • Basal cell carcinoma of the skin or localized squamous cell carcinoma of the skin.
    • Prostate cancer Gleason grade 6 or lower AND with stable Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) levels off treatment
    • Previous malignancy with no evidence of disease confirmed and surgically resected (or treated with other modalities) with curative intent and unlikely to impact survival during the duration of the study.
  • Known active severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) infection.
  • Has a hypersensitivity or allergy to any of the components of study therapy, excipient or boron.
  • Known allergies, hypersensitivities, or intolerance to monoclonal antibodies or human proteins, or their excipients, or known sensitivity to mammalian-derived products (see daratumumab prescribing information).
