Isatuximab in combination with carfilzomib and dexamethasone for relapsed and/or refractory myeloma
Carfilzomib (Kyprolis® )
The aim of this trial is to determine whether the addition of isatuximab to carfilzomib and dexamethasone prolongs progression free survival in relapsed and/or refractory myeloma patients, when compared to treatment with carfilzomib and dexamethasone alone.
Derriford Hospital, Plymouth;
Leicester Royal Infirmary, Leicester
Who can enter the study?:
Relapsed and/or refractory myeloma patients who have received between 1 and 3 prior treatments.
Patients will be randomised to either received isatuximab, carfilzomib and dexamethasone, or carfilzomib and dexamethasone only.
Isatuximab is given intravenously (into the vein) on days 1, 8, 15 and 22 of the first 28-day cycle, and then on days 1 and 15 for subsequent cycles.
Carfilzomib is given intravenously on days 1, 2, 8, 9, 15 and 16 of each cycle.
Dexamethasone is given either intravenously, or taken by mouth, on days 1, 2, 8, 9, 15, 16, 22 and 23 of the 28-day cycle.
Treatment will continue until there are signs of disease progression. Patients will be required to attend out-patient clinics for regular check-ups and blood tests.
(for Medical Professionals):
This is a randomised, open label, Phase III trial to determine the clinical benefit of isatuximab in combination with carfilzomib and dexamethasone in terms of prolonging progression-free survival in relapsed and/or refractory myeloma patients.
