Eligibility Criteria  ICMJE

Inclusion Criteria:

  1. Subject has active R/R multiple myeloma.
  2. Subject has measurable myeloma based on any of the following:

    • Serum M-protein > 0.5 g/dL
    • Urine M-protein > 200 mg/24 hours
    • Serum free light chains > 10 mg/dL
    • Measurable plasmacytoma or extramedullary disease
  3. Subject has active myeloma despite prior therapy with a proteasome inhibitor, an immunomodulatory agent and an anti-CD38 antibody.

    Note: Subject must not be a candidate for regimens known to provide clinical benefit.

  4. Subject has an Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group performance status (ECOG PS) score of 0 or 1.
  5. Subject is > 18 years of age.
  6. Subject has adequate hematopoietic, renal and hepatic function, defined as:

    • Absolute neutrophil count > 1,000/μL; platelet count > 75,000/μL in patients with < 50% marrow involvement
    • Absolute neutrophil count > 750/μL; platelet count > 50,000/μL in patients with >50% marrow involvement
    • Serum creatinine < 2.5 mg/dL or calculated creatinine clearance of > 30 mL/min according to the Cockcroft-Gault equation
    • Aspartate transaminase/alanine transaminase ≤2.5× the upper limit of normal (ULN) and total bilirubin < 2× the ULN
