ONC201 is a novel dopamine receptor D2 antagonist that is able to activate the integrated stress response pathway. It is active against multiple myeloma cells in vitro, both as a single agent and in combination with corticosteroids and proteasome inhibitors. In order to document superiority over the combination compared to the individual agents of ixazomib and ONC201 in a single arm study, there will initially be a run-in period of weekly ONC201 625 mg with dexamethasone 40 mg such that if there is progression of disease (25% increase) after 4 weeks or less than a minimal response (25% reduction) after 8 weeks then ixazomib will be added. Dexamethasone is dose-reduced to 20 mg at the same schedule for subjects ≥ 75 years old. If patients do achieve single-agent responses with ONC201 (minimal response or better), they will continue with weekly ONC201 and dexamethasone until progression, with response assessments after each 28-day cycle. Patients who have previously been treated on another clinical trial with weekly ONC201 625mg with dexamethasone with progression while receiving treatment do not need to complete the run-in phase of the study.
At the time of progression, they will proceed to the 3 drug combination phase of the study. It is at the point of 3 drug initiation, that below phase I DLT principles or phase II disease control rate considerations apply.
