Ixazomib Citrate, Pomalidomide, Dexamethasone, and Stem Cell Transplant in Treating Patients with Relapsed or Refractory Multiple Myeloma

Status: Active

Description

This phase II trial studies how well ixazomib citrate, pomalidomide, dexamethasone, and stem cell transplant works in treating patients with multiple myeloma that has come back or does not respond to treatment. Giving chemotherapy, such as pomalidomide and dexamethasone, before a stem cell transplant helps kill any cancer cells that are in the body and helps make room in the patient’s bone marrow for new blood-forming cells (stem cells) to grow. After treatment, stem cells are collected from the patient's blood and stored. More chemotherapy is then given to prepare the bone marrow for the stem cell transplant. The stem cells are then returned to the patient to replace the blood-forming cells that were destroyed by the chemotherapy. Giving ixazomib citrate in addition to pomalidomide, dexamethasone, and stem cell transplant may work better in treating patients with relapsed or refractory multiple myeloma.

Exclusion Criteria

  • Diagnosed or treated for another malignancy =< 2 years prior to registration or previously diagnosed with another malignancy and have any evidence of residual disease * NOTE: If there is a history or prior malignancy, patient must not be receiving other specific treatment for their cancer; patients with non-melanoma skin cancer or carcinoma in situ of any type, or low-risk prostate cancer after curative therapy, are not excluded if they have undergone complete resection * NOTE: Platelet transfusions to help patients meet eligibility criteria are not allowed =< 3 days prior to study registration
  • Any of the following: * Pregnant persons * Nursing persons * Persons of childbearing potential who are unwilling to employ adequate contraception
  • Co-morbid systemic illnesses or other severe concurrent disease which, in the judgment of the investigator, would make the patient inappropriate for entry into this study or interfere significantly with the proper assessment of safety and toxicity of the prescribed regimens; NOTE: this includes uncompensated heart or lung disease
  • Receiving any other investigational agent which would be considered as a treatment for the primary neoplasm; NOTE: Bisphosphonates are considered to be supportive care rather than therapy and are allowed while on protocol treatment
  • Patient has >= grade 2 peripheral neuropathy, or grade 1 with pain on clinical examination during the screening period
  • Major surgery =<14 days prior to registration
  • Systemic treatment with strong CYP3A inducers (rifampin, rifapentine, rifabutin, carbamazepine, phenytoin, phenobarbital) or use of Ginkgo biloba or St. John’s wort =< 14 days prior to registration
  • Uncontrolled intercurrent illness including, but not limited to, ongoing or active infection, symptomatic congestive heart failure, unstable angina pectoris, cardiac arrhythmia, or psychiatric illness/social situations that would limit compliance with study requirements. NOTE: Any electrocardiogram (ECG) abnormality at screening must be documented by the investigator as not medically relevant
  • Corrected QT (QTc) > 470 milliseconds (msec) on a 12-lead ECG obtained during the screening period; Note: If a machine reading is above this value, the ECG should be reviewed by a qualified reader and confirmed on a subsequent ECG
  • Known human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) positive
  • Known hepatitis B surface antigen-positive status, or known or suspected active hepatitis C infection
  • Known allergy to any of the study medications, their analogues or excipients in the various formulations

Trial Objectives and Outline

PRIMARY OBJECTIVES:

I. To estimate the rate of progression free survival at 18 months from study entry after therapy with ixazomib citrate (ixazomib [MLN9708]) in combination with pomalidomide and dexamethasone followed by a single autologous stem cell transplantation (ASCT) and consolidation with ixazomib in combination with pomalidomide and dexamethasone and maintenance with ixazomib in relapsed refractory ASCT naive multiple myeloma (MM) patients.

SECONDARY OBJECTIVES:

I. To determine the best overall response rates (>= partial response [PR]) and deep responses (very good partial response [VGPR], complete response [CR], stringent complete response [sCR]) at various stages of treatment: after induction, after stem cell transplantation (SCT), after consolidation and during maintenance.

II. To determine the overall survival from study entry.

TERTIARY OBJECTIVES:

I. Assessment of minimal residual disease (MRD) by flow cytometry at various stages of treatment: after induction, day # 100 after SCT, after consolidation and during maintenance at year 1 and 2 from initiation of maintenance therapy.

II. To determine the engraftment kinetics (white blood cells [WBC] and platelet) following single salvage ASCT for relapsed disease.

OUTLINE:

INDUCTION (COURSES 1-4): Patients receive ixazomib citrate orally (PO) on days 1, 8, and 15, pomalidomide (PO) on days 1-21, and dexamethasone PO on days 1, 8, 15, and 22. Treatment repeats every 28 days (courses 1-3) and 56 days (course 4) for up to 4 courses in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

TRANSPLANTATION (COURSE 5): Between 2-4 weeks following Induction, patients undergo ASCT.

CONSOLIDATION (COURSES 6-9): Beginning 60-120 days following ASCT, patients receive ixazomib citrate, pomalidomide, and dexamethasone as in Induction. Treatment repeats every 28 days (courses 6-8) and 56 days (course 9) for up to 4 courses in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

MAINTENANCE (COURSES 10+): Beginning 0-4 weeks following Consolidation, patients receive ixazomib citrate as in Induction. Courses repeat every 28 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up every 3 months until progressive disease, and then every 6 months for 3 years.
