TAS-120 for refractory myeloma patients with FGF/FGFR abnormalities
The purpose of this trial is to determine the safety and efficacy of TAS-120 in refractory myeloma patients who have fibroblast growth factor/fibroblast growth factor receptor (FGF/FGFR) abnormalities.
Genetic abnormalities that affect the FGF/FGFR signalling pathway are linked to many cancers including myeloma. TAS-120 is an inhibitor of FGFR and so is being researched as a myeloma treatment.
Sarah Cannon Research Institute, London
Who can enter the study?:
Myeloma patients with confirmed genetic abnormalities within FGF/FGFR, for example amplification, mutation or translocation, who have not responded to any previous standard treatments.
TAS-120 capsules are taken by mouth for a 21-day cycle.
Patients will be required to attend outpatient clinics for regular check-ups and blood tests.
(for Medical Professionals):
This study is investigating the efficacy of TAS-120 in myeloma patients with fibroblast growth factor/fibroblast growth factor receptor (FGF/FGFR) abnormalities who are refractory to all standard treatments.
