Brief Summary:
A Phase II study of CART-ddBCMA for patients with relapsed or refractory multiple myeloma. CART-ddBCMA is a BCMA-directed CAR-T cell therapy

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Multiple Myeloma Biological: CART-ddBCMA Phase 2

Detailed Description:

This is a Phase II open-label study of CART-ddBCMA* in patients with relapsed or refractory multiple myeloma (MM). The study will have the following sequential phases: screening, enrollment, pre-treatment with lymphodepleting chemotherapy, treatment with CART-ddBCMA, and follow-up. If necessary, bridging therapy is allowed to control growth of MM disease while CART-ddBCMA is being manufactured.

Following a single infusion of CART-ddBCMA both safety and efficacy data will be assessed. Efficacy will be assessed monthly for the first 6 months, then quarterly up to 2 years, or upon patient relapse. The primary analysis will be conducted approximately 13 months after the final patient is dosed. This will allow approximately 12 months follow up from the time of the last observed response on study.

Long-term safety data will be collected under a separate long-term follow up study for up to 15 years per health authority guidelines.

*CART-ddBCMA drug product consists of autologous T cells that have been genetically modified ex vivo to express a D-domain Chimeric Antigen Receptor (CAR), followed by a cluster of differentiation 8 (CD8) hinge and transmembrane region that is fused to the intracellular signaling domains for 4-1BB and CD3ξ, that specifically recognizes B-cell maturation antigen (BCMA). The active substance of CART-ddBCMA is CAR+ CD3+ T cells that have undergone ex vivo T-cell activation, gene transfer by replication-deficient lentiviral vector, and expansion.
