Multiple Myeloma Clinical Trials

Showing 1-24 of 24 items
  • Continued, Long-Term Follow-Up and Lenalidomide Maintenance Therapy for Patients on BMT CTN 0702 Protocol (BMT CTN 07LT)
  • This study is designed to compare long-term outcomes among patients randomized on the BMT CTN 0702 protocol (NCT01109004), "A Trial of Single Autologous Transplant with or without Consolidation Therapy versus Tandem Autologous Transplant with Lenalidomide Maintenance for Patients with Multiple Myeloma". It is hypothesized that use of novel anti-myeloma agents will improve long-term progression-free survival (PFS) after high-dose melphalan followed by autologous hematopoietic cell transplantation (HCT) as compared to a second autologous transplantation.
  • Diagnoses: Multiple Myeloma
  • Status: Recruiting
  • Randomized Trial of Lenalidomide, Bortezomib, Dexamethasone vs High-Dose Treatment With SCT in MM Patients up to Age 65
  • The drugs, lenalidomide, bortezomib, and dexamethasone, are approved by the FDA. They have not been approved in the combination for multiple myeloma or any other type of cancer. Bortezomib is currently approved by the FDA for the treatment of multiple myeloma. Lenalidomide is approved for use with dexamethasone for patients with multiple myeloma who have received at least one prior therapy and for the treatment of certain types of myelodysplastic syndrome (another type of cancer affecting the blood). Dexamethasone is commonly used, either alone, or in combination with other drugs, to treat multiple myeloma. Please note that Bortezomib and Lenalidomide are provided to patients participating in this trial at no charge. Melphalan and cyclophosphamide, the drugs used during stem cell collection and transplant, are also approved by the FDA. Melphalan is an FDA-approved chemotherapy for multiple myeloma and is used as a high-dose conditioning treatment prior to stem cell transplantation. Cyclophosphamide is used, either alone, or in combination with other drugs, to treat multiple myeloma. These drugs have been used in other multiple myeloma studies and information from those studies suggests that this combination of therapy may help to treat newly diagnosed multiple myeloma. In this research study, we are looking to explore the drug combination, lenalidomide, bortezomib and dexamethasone alone or when combined with autologous stem cell transplantation to see what side effects it may have and how well it works for treatment of newly diagnosed multiple myeloma. Specifically, the objective of this trial is to determine if, in the era of novel drugs, high dose therapy (HDT) is still necessary in the initial management of multiple myeloma in younger patients. In this study, HDT as compared to conventional dose treatment would be considered superior if it significantly prolongs progression-free survival by at least 9 months or more, recognizing that particular subgroups may benefit more compared to others.
  • Diagnoses: Multiple Myeloma
  • Status: Recruiting
  • Dendritic Cell/Myeloma Fusion Vaccine for Multiple Myeloma (BMT CTN 1401)
  • The study is designed as a Phase II, multicenter trial of vaccination with Dendritic cell/myeloma fusions with granulocyte macrophage colony-stimulating factor (GM-CSF) adjuvant plus lenalidomide maintenance therapy versus maintenance therapy alone or with GM-CSF following autologous transplant as part of upfront treatment of multiple myeloma (MM). It is hypothesized that the dendritic cell myeloma vaccine will result in improved response in patients with multiple myeloma after autologous Hematopoietic Cell Transplant (HCT).
  • Diagnoses: Multiple Myeloma
  • Status: Recruiting
  • ACE-011 With Lenalidomide+Dexamethasone for Relapsed/Refractory Multiple Myeloma
  • It is possible that the combination of lenalidomide, dexamethasone and ACE 011 may reduce or prevent the growth of cancer cells along with improving anemia and bone lesions that sometimes occur in people with multiple myeloma. This current study is the first study combining ACE 011 with lenalidomide. In this research study, the investigators are looking for the highest dose of ACE 011 that can be given with lenalidomide and dexamethasone. The investigators will also begin to collect information about the effect of the combination of ACE 011, lenalidomide and dexamethasone on multiple myeloma.
  • Diagnoses: Multiple Myeloma
  • Status: Recruiting
  • Dose Escalation Study to Investigate the Safety, Pharmacokinetics, Pharmacodynamics, Immunogenicity and Clinical Activity of GSK2857916
  • This study will assess the safety, pharmacokinetic (PK), pharmacodynamic (PD) and the therapeutic potential of GSK2857916 in subjects with multiple myeloma (MM) and lymphomas that express B cell maturation antigen (BCMA). The hypothesis is that GSK2857916 can be safely administered to subjects with MM and with BCMA positive malignancies at doses where target engagement can be demonstrated. This study will determine if adequate target engagement of BCMA receptors translates into clinical benefit for subjects with MM and BCMA positive lymphomas. The study will consists of two parts: a Part 1 dose escalation phase and a Part 2 expansion phase for safety, tolerability, PK, PD, and clinical activity testing. The study will enroll a total of approximately 80-95 subjects with relapsed/refractory MM or BCMA-expressing hematologic malignancies. The maximum dose to be administered in this trial will not exceed 5 milligram/kilogram(mg/kg).
  • Diagnoses: Multiple Myeloma

  • Lenalidomide With or Without Ixazomib Citrate and Dexamethasone in Treating Patients With Residual Multiple Myeloma After Donor Stem Cell Transplant
  • This randomized phase II trial studies how well lenalidomide alone compared to lenalidomide, ixazomib citrate, and dexamethasone work in treating patients with multiple myeloma that remains (residual) after donor stem cell transplant. Lenalidomide may help the immune system kill abnormal blood cells or cancer cells and may also prevent the growth of new blood vessels that are needed for cancer growth. Ixazomib citrate may stop the growth of cancer cells by interfering with proteins necessary for cell growth. 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. It is not yet known whether lenalidomide is more effective with or without ixazomib citrate and dexamethasone in treating residual multiple myeloma.

  • A Study of Pembrolizumab (MK-3475) in Combination With Standard of Care Treatments in Participants With Multiple Myeloma (MK-3475-023/KEYNOTE-023)
  • This is a study of pembrolizumab (MK-3475, KEYTRUDA®) in combination with lenalidomide and low-dose dexamethasone in participants with refractory or relapsed and refractory Multiple Myeloma (rrMM), and in combination with carfilzomib and low-dose dexamethasone in participants with relapsed or refractory Multiple Myeloma (rMM). This study is being done to find the maximum tolerated dose (MTD)/maximum administered dose (MAD) and recommended Phase 2 dose (RP2D), and to evaluate the safety and tolerability of pembrolizumab (MK-3475) when given in combination with standard of care (SOC) treatments in participants with rrMM or rMM. Preliminary efficacy data will also be assessed. The primary study hypothesis is that these combinations are sufficiently well tolerated to permit further clinical investigation.
