Condition newly diagnosed multiple myeloma
Treatments mln9708, lenalidomide, dexamethasone
Phase phase 2
Target proteasome
Sponsor Nantes University Hospital
Start date October 2014
End date January 2019
Trial size 42 participants
Trial identifier NCT01936532, 2013-001443-31, RC12_0447


This is a phase II, multicenter, open-label study to evaluate the safety and efficacy of MLN9708 in combination with Lenalidomide and Dexamethasone in patients with newly diagnosed multiple myeloma. The patient population will consist of adult men and women younger than 66 years, who have a confirmed diagnosis of MM who meet eligibility criteria.

Following the screening period, patients will be enrolled and treated then, they will receive induction therapy (3 cycles), a systematic Peripheral Blood Stem Cell harvest. After Peripheral Blood Stem Cell Transplantation, patient will enter in the consolidation phase (early and late one) 2 months after transplantation. Finally, patients follow a Maintenance therapy (start 1 month after the last cycle of consolidation) during 12 months.

Primary purpose treatment
Induction therapy Patients will receive 3 cycles of induction therapy with MLN9708 (4 mg) on Days 1, 8 and 15, plus Lenalidomide (25 mg) on Days 1 through 21 and Dexamethasone (40 mg) on Days 1, 8, 15 and 22 of a 28-day cycle. Consolidation therapy Early consolidation (consolidation part 1) will comprise 2 cycles of MRD identical to induction therapy. Late consolidation (consolidation part 2) will consist in 6 additional cycles of MLN9708 (4 mg on Days 1, 8 and 15) plus lenalidomide (25 mg on Days 1 through 21) of a 28-day cycle. Maintenance therapy MLN9708 monotherapy (4 mg/day), will be given on days 1, 8 and 15 of a 28 day cycle, during 12 months.

Eligibility Criteria

Male or female participants from 18 years up to 66 years old.

Inclusion criteria 1. Male or female patients ≥ 18 years and ≤ 65 years at the time 2. Voluntary written consent must be given before performance of any study related procedure not part of standard medical care, with the understanding that consent may be withdrawn by the patient at any time without prejudice to future medical care. 3. Patients diagnosed with multiple myeloma 4. Subjects must have symptomatic myeloma with CRAB criteria. 5. Subjects must have measurable disease requiring systemic therapy defined by serum M-component ≥ 5g/l, urine M-component ≥ 200 mg/24h or serum FLC ≥ 100 mg/l. 6. Subjects must not have been treated previously with any systemic therapy for multiple myeloma. 7.Subjects must be eligible for high dose therapy. 8.Life expectancy ≥ 3 months.9.ECOG performance status 0, 1 or 2. 10.Patients must meet the following clinical laboratory criteria - Adequate hepatic function, with serum ALT and AST ≤ 3 times the upper limit of normal and serum direct bilirubin ≤ 1.5 times the upper limit of normal within 14 days prior to enrolment. - Absolute neutrophil count (ANC) ≥ 1.0 × 109/L within 14 days prior to enrollment. - Hemoglobin ≥ 8 g/dL (80 g/L) within 14 days prior to enrollment (subjects may be receiving red blood cell [RBC] transfusions in accordance with institutional guidelines with a wash-out period of 7 days). - Platelet count ≥ 75 × 109/L (≥ 30 × 109/L if myeloma involvement in the bone marrow is > 50%) within 14 days prior to enrollment. Platelet transfusions to help patients meet eligibility criteria are not allowed within 3 days before study enrollment. - Calculated creatinine clearance ≥ 30 mL/minute (MDRD formula should be used for calculating creatinine clearance values: http://mdrd.com/). 11.Female of childbearing potential:must have two negative pregnancy tests : one serum pregnancy test within 10 to 14 days prior to therapy and one urine pregnancy test within 24 hours before starting study drug. must agree to practice 2 effective methods of contraception, at the same time, from the time of signing the informed consent through 3 months after the last dose of study drug, or agree to completely abstain from heterosexual intercourse. 12.Male patients, even if surgically sterilized, must agree to not father a child and agree to use a latex condom during therapy and for 3 months after the last dose of study drug, even if they have had a successful vasectomy, if their partner is of childbearing potential. 13.Affiliation number to National Health Care System.
