A Phase 1 Study of Autologous Memory-like Natural Killer (NK) Cell Immunotherapy with BHV-1100 (formerly KP1237) and IVIG followed by low dose IL-2 as Early Post-Autologous Transplant Consolidation in Minimal Residual Disease Positive, Multiple Myeloma (MM) Patients in First or Second Remission

Trial Description

This is an open-label single center Phase 1a/1b study with the primary objective of
establishing the safety and exploring the efficacy of infusing the ex vivo combination
product of cytokine induced memory-like (CIML) NK cells plus KP1237 and low dose IL-2 in
newly diagnosed MM patients who have minimal residual disease (MRD+) in first remission
prior to autologous stem cell transplant (ASCT).
