  Purpose

RATIONALE: Lenalidomide and bortezomib may stop the growth of multiple myeloma by blocking blood flow to the tumor. Also, bortezomib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Monoclonal antibodies, such as elotuzumab, can block cancer growth in different ways. Some block the ability of cancer cells to grow and spread. Others find cancer cells and help kill them or carry cancer-killing substances to them. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as lenalidomide and dexamethasone also work in different ways to kill tumor cells or stop them from growing. Giving elotuzumab together with chemotherapy may be a better way to block cancer growth.

PURPOSE: This phase I/II trial is studying the side effects and best dose of elotuzumab and to see how well it works when given with lenalidomide, bortezomib, and dexamethasone in treating patients with multiple myeloma.

Detailed Description:

OBJECTIVES:

  • To determine the appropriate Phase II dose of elotuzumab to use in combination with lenalidomide, bortezomib, and dexamethasone for patients with multiple myeloma. (Phase I)
  • To assess whether incorporation of the novel agent elotuzumab into the treatment algorithm of high-risk multiple myeloma (HRMM) will improve progression-free survival (PFS). (Phase II)
  • To estimate the frequency and severity of toxicities of this treatment strategy in this patient population.

OUTLINE: This is a multicenter, phase I, dose-escalation study of elotuzumab, followed by a phase II, randomized study. Patients are stratified according to primary plasma cell leukemia and/or high lactic dehydrogenase (LDH) vs everyone else.

Phase I:

  • Induction: Patients receive bortezomib subcutaneously (SC) or IV on days 1, 4, 8, and 11; lenalidomide orally (PO) once daily on days 1-14; and dexamethasone PO or IV on days 1, 2, 4, 5, 8, 9, 11, and 12. Patients also receive elotuzumab IV on days 1, 8, and 15 of courses 1 and 2 and on days 1 and 11 of courses 3-8. Treatment repeats every 21 days for 8 courses in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
  • Maintenance: Patients receive bortezomib SC or IV on days 1, 8, and 15; lenalidomide PO once daily on days 1-21; dexamethasone PO on days 1, 8, and 15; and elotuzumab IV on days 1 and 15. Treatment repeats every 28 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

Phase II: Patients are randomized to 1 of 2 treatment arms.

  • Arm I:

    • Induction: Patients receive bortezomib SC or IV on days 1, 4, 8, and 11; lenalidomide PO once daily on days 1-14; and dexamethasone PO or IV on days 1, 2, 4, 5, 8, 9, 11, and 12. Treatment repeats every 21 days for 8 courses in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity (patients who received a course of chemotherapy prior to registration will begin protocol treatment with course 2 and receive a total of 7 courses of protocol therapy).
    • Maintenance: Patients receive bortezomib SC or IV on days 1, 8, and 15; lenalidomide PO once daily on days 1-21; and dexamethasone PO on days 1, 8, and 15. Treatment repeats every 28 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
  • Arm II:

    • Induction: Patients receive bortezomib, lenalidomide, and dexamethasone as in arm I. Patients also receive elotuzumab IV on days 1, 8, and 15 of courses 1 and 2 and on days 1 and 11 of courses 3-8. Treatment repeats every 21 days for 8 courses in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
    • Maintenance: Patients receive bortezomib, lenalidomide, and dexamethasone as in arm I. Patients also receive elotuzumab IV on days 1 and 15. Treatment repeats every 28 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

After completion of study therapy, patients are followed every 3 months for up to 6 years.
