Evaluation of the effect iberdomide combined with low-dose cyclophosphamide and dexamethasone in patients with relapsed/refractory multiple myeloma.


Novel drugs such as lenalidomide (an immunomodulatory drug; IMiD) have markedly improved the prognosis of multiple myeloma patients. Over the recent years, lenalidomide is increasingly used as part of first line therapy, typically until the development of progressive disease. These lenalidomide-refractory patients can be treated with several regimens. However, these regimens frequently contain proteasome inhibitors which are associated with neuropathy (bortezomib) or cardiovascular complications (carfilzomib). These proteasome inhibitors also need to be administered subcutaneously or intravenously in the hospital, once or twice per week. Also these regimens have limited efficacy in lenalidomide-refractory patients. This indicates that there is still an unmet medical need for new treatment options for patients who develop lenalidomide-refractory disease. These new treatment regimens should be active and safe without induction of neuropathy or cardiovascular side effects Moreover, an all oral regimen is frequently preferred by patients.

Iberdomide plus low-dose cyclophosphamide and dexamethasone

Available data indicates that the Cereblon E3 ligase modifying drug (CELMoD) iberdomide (CC220) is pharmacologically distinct from lenalidomide and pomalidomide with a higher potency against Cereblon, leading to differentiated antitumor and immunostimulating effects. Since iberdomide plus dexamethasone is active and well-tolerated in heavily pretreated patients including those with lenalidomide/pomalidomide-refractory disease, this two-drug regimen forms a new platform to which other agents can be added. The combinations of bortezomib, carfilzomib, or daratumumab plus iberdomide and dexamethasone are currently being evaluated.

Investigators have shown that low-dose cyclophosphamide can be effectively combined with the IMiDs lenalidomide and pomalidomide. These combinations are effective and are well-tolerated.

To address the unmet medical need for new treatment options for lenalidomide-refractory MM patients, the investigators aim at further improving the efficacy of IMiD/CELMoD plus dexamethasone combination therapy in terms of response and progression-free survival, by adding low-dose cyclophosphamide to the iberdomide-dexamethasone backbone (IberCd). This all-oral regimen will be tested in a lenalidomide-refractory patient population with 2-4 prior lines of therapy. The goal of this trial is to investigate the efficacy and safety of the IberCd combination in multiple myeloma patients who have refractory disease or a relapse after prior treatment with lenalidomide. Besides, various correlative studies will be performed during this trial including immune monitoring.

Inclusion Criteria

Age ≥ 18 years
Subject must have documented diagnosis of multiple myeloma and have measurable disease as defined by any of the following
• Serum monoclonal paraprotein (M-protein) level ≥5 g/L (0.5 g/dL); or urine
M-protein level ≥200 mg/24 hours; or serum immunoglobulin free light chain
≥100 mg/L (10 mg/dL) and abnormal serum immunoglobulin kappa lambda free light
chain ratio (See Appendix A)
Relapsed or refractory disease. Relapse is defined as progression of disease after an initial response to previous treatment, more than 60 days after cessation of treatment. Refractory disease is defined as <50% reduction in M-protein or progression of disease during treatment or within 60 days after cessation of treatment
Subject had 2-4 prior anti-myeloma regimens. (Note: Induction, bone marrow transplant with or without maintenance therapy is considered one regimen; Prior pomalidomide is allowed )
Subject has developed lenalidomide-refractory disease (any dose) during prior treatment with lenalidomide or a lenalidomide-containing regimen Lenalidomide-refractory MM is defined as progressive disease during therapy, no response (< PR) to prior lenalidomide-containing therapy, or progression within 60 days of discontinuation from lenalidomide-containing regimens, according to the International Myeloma Working Group criteria
WHO performance 0, 1, or 2
Life expectancy at least 3 months
Written informed consent
A female of childbearing potential (FCBP) is a female who: 1) has achieved menarche at some point, 2) has not undergone a hysterectomy or bilateral oophorectomy, or 3) has not been naturally postmenopausal (amenorrhea following cancer therapy does not rule out childbearing potential) for at least 24 consecutive months (i.e., has had menses at any time in the preceding 24 consecutive months) and must
Males must agree to refrain from donating sperm while on study treatment, during dose
interruptions and for at least 90 days following last dose of study treatment
Have two negative pregnancy tests as verified by the Investigator prior to starting study treatment. She must agree to ongoing pregnancy testing during the course of the study, and after end of study treatment. This applies even if the subject practices true abstinence from heterosexual contact
Either commit to true abstinence from heterosexual contact (which must be reviewed on a monthly basis and source documented) or agree to use, and be able to comply with two forms of contraception: one highly effective, and one additional effective (barrier) measure of contraception without interruption 28 days prior to starting investigational product, during the study treatment (including dose interruptions), and for at least 28 days after the last dose of CC-220, 90 days after the last dose of cyclophosphamide, whichever is longer. Contraception requirements are detailed in Appendix H
Male subjects must
Practice true abstinence (which must be reviewed on a monthly basis and source documented) or agree to use a condom during sexual contact with a pregnant female or a female of childbearing potential while participating in the study, during dose interruptions and for at least 90 days following the last dose of study treatment, even if he has undergone a successful vasectomy
True abstinence is acceptable when this is in line with the preferred and usual lifestyle of the subject. [Periodic abstinence (eg, calendar, ovulation, symptothermal, post-ovulation methods) and withdrawal are not acceptable methods of contraception.]
All subjects must agree to refrain from donating blood while on study treatment, during dose interruptions and for at least 28 days following the last dose of study treatment
