This phase II trial studies how well dexamethasone, elotuzumab, pomalidomide work in treating patients with multiple myeloma that has not responded to previous treatment. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as 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. Immunotherapy with monoclonal antibodies, such as elotuzumab, may help the body's immune system attack the cancer, and may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Pomalidomide may stop the growth of multiple myeloma by blocking the growth of new blood vessels necessary for tumor growth. Giving dexamethasone, elotuzumab, pomalidomide may work better in treating patients with multiple myeloma.
Patients receive dexamethasone intravenously (IV) on days 1, 8, 15, and 22 of courses 1-2 and IV on day 1 and orally (PO) on days 8, 15, and 22 of subsequent courses and elotuzumab IV on days 1, 8, 15, and 22 of courses 1-2 and day 1 of subsequent courses. Patients also receive pomalidomide PO on days 1-21. Courses repeat every 28 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up every 3 months until progressive disease, then every 6 months thereafter.
