This trial is investigating whether Reolysin, a type of viral therapy, can halt relapse in patients who are being treated with lenalidomide (Revlimid®) or pomalidomide (Imnovid®). It is specifically looking to identify the best dose of Reolysin to use.
St James' Hospital, Leeds
Who can enter the study?:
Depending on their current treatment, patients will continue to receive either lenalidomide (10mg dose or current dose if lower than 10mg) or pomalidomide (1mg or current dose if lower than 1mg) on days 1-21 of a 28 day cycle. Patients who are also on steroid treatment must stop taking it at least 48 hours before starting their first Reolysin treatment.
Reolysin is given as a one hour intravenous (into the vein) infusion on days 1, 8, 15 and 22.
Treatment is continued until there are signs the myeloma is progressing or because of other reasons.
Patients are required to visit the outpatient clinic for regular blood test and checkups.
(for Medical Professionals):
This trial is aiming to determine the maximum tolerated dose of Reolysin that can be given in combination with lenalidomide or pomalidomide in two separate cohorts of relapsed and/or refractory myeloma patients. It is also investigating the safety, side-effects and effectiveness of the treatment combinations.
