A Study of Venetoclax in Combination With Pomalidomide and Dexamethasone in Subjects With Relapsed or Refractory Multiple Myeloma

Status: Active


This study is designed to evaluate the safety and preliminary efficacy of venetoclax combined with pomalidomide and dexamethasone in subjects with relapsed or refractory (R / R) multiple myeloma (MM) who have received at least 1 prior line of therapy. The study will consist of 2 parts: Part 1 (dose escalation) and Part 2 (dose expansion). For Part 2 the subjects will be divided into 2 cohorts, subjects positive for t(11;14) translocation and subjects negative for t(11;14) translocation.

  • Measurable disease as described in the protocol.
  • Received at least 1 prior line of therapy, as described in the protocol.
  • Must meet prior antimyeloma treatment parameters, as described in the protocol, and includes:
  • Received at least 2 consecutive cycles of lenalidomide or a lenalidomide containing regimen
  • Refractory to lenalidomide

  • For Part 1: MM subjects independent of cytogenetic profile.
  • For Part 2, Arm A: subject must be t(11;14) positive.
  • For Part 2, Arm B: subject must be t(11;14) negative.

  • Allogenic or syngeneic stem cell transplant within 6 months before the first dose of study drug or active ongoing graft versus host disease
  • Autologous stem cell transplant within 12 weeks before the first dose of study drug
  • Known meningeal involvement of MM
