Study of the Combination of Panobinostat and Carfilzomib in Patients With Relapsed/Refractory Multiple Myeloma
Phase I/II Study of the Combination of Panobinostat and Carfilzomib in Patients With Relapsed/Refractory Multiple Myeloma

Relapsed/refractory Multiple Myeloma (MM) is an incurable disorder with a poor prognosis. Carfilzomib is a novel proteasome inhibitor with activity in this setting. Panobinostat is a pan-deacetylase inhibitor which has shown synergistic cytotoxicity in vitro and in vivo with proteasome inhibitors. The combination should enhance the activity of both agents against myeloma cells. In Phase I, the optimal doses of the combination of carfilzomib and panobinostat will be determined. Assuming this combination is feasible, the Phase II portion will proceed using the doses determined in Phase I.

This is an open-label, non-randomized Phase I/II study of patients with relapsed or refractory multiple myeloma. A maximum of four dose levels were evaluated during the Phase I portion and no dose-limiting toxicities (DLTs) were observed. In Phase II, patients with relapsed/refractory multiple myeloma will receive treatment with the dose level 4 panobinostat and carfilzomib combination. Patients will be reevaluated for response to treatment after each cycle (4 weeks). Patients with objective response or stable disease will continue treatment, with subsequent reevaluations every 4 weeks, until disease progression or unacceptable toxicity occurs.

A parallel Phase I study will occur to evaluate a minimum of 3 patients and a maximum of 6 patients following a standard dose escalation design at additional dose levels of the combination of carfilzomib and panobinostat. If these dose levels are found to be tolerable, then additional patients will be recruited into an expansion cohort which will be open at all sites; a maximum of 36 patients (including those recruited into the parallel Phase I study) will be treated at this dose level. Sites will be notified about the expansion cohort and patients will enter in the dose level confirmed in their enrollment confirmation from SCRI Innovations. Up to 80 eligible patients will be treated in the Phase I/II study.
