Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older   (Adult, Older Adult)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  1. Subjects must have relapsed and/or refractory myeloma with measurable disease, as defined by at least one of the following: *Serum M-protein level >/=0.5 g/dL for Immunoglobulin G (IgG), Immunoglobulin A (IgA), or Immunoglobulin M (IgM) disease; * M-protein or total serum Immunoglobulin D (IgD) >/=0.5 g/dL for IgD disease; * Urinary Myeloma (M)-protein excretion of >/= 200 mg over a 24-hour period; * Involved free light chain level >/=10 mg/dL, along with an abnormal free light chain ratio.
  2. Subjects must have had at least three lines of therapy for their disease, including a proteasome inhibitor and immunomodulatory drug (e.g., lenalidomide), with lines of therapy being separated by the presence of documented disease progression. Using this definition, treatment with induction therapy, followed by high dose chemotherapy and autologous stem cell transplantation, and finally by maintenance therapy, would constitute one line, provided that multiple myeloma did not meet criteria for progression at any time during this period.

  18. Subjects must be fully informed about their illness and the investigational nature of the study protocol (including foreseeable risks and possible side effects).
  19. Subjects must sign and date an Institutional Review Board-approved informed consent form (including Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act authorization, if applicable) before performance of any study-specific procedures or tests.
  20. Subjects must be able and willing to provide bone marrow biopsies/aspirates as requested by the protocol.
  21. Subjects must be willing to undergo malignancy genotyping for TP53 mutation, insertion, or deletion at screening.
  22. Subjects must have an estimated life expectancy of at least 3 months.

Exclusion Criteria:

  1. Subjects who are receiving any concurrent investigational or conventional agent with known or suspected activity against multiple myeloma, or those whose adverse events due to agents administered more than 4 weeks earlier have not recovered to a severity of grade 0 or grade 1. Subjects with chronic Grade 2 toxicities may be eligible per discretion of the Investigator and MDACC investigational new drug (IND) Office (eg, Grade 2 chemotherapy-induced neuropathy).
  2. Subject who received any therapies intended to treat malignancy within 21 days of first receipt of DS-3032b
  3. Subjects with a malignancy that contains a non-synonymous mutation, insertion, or deletion in the TP53 gene determined previously or at screening.
  4. Subjects with known central nervous system involvement with multiple myeloma will be excluded from this clinical trial because of their poor prognosis and because they often develop progressive neurologic dysfunction that would confound the evaluation of neurologic and other adverse events.
  5. Subjects with a known history of allergic reactions attributed to compounds of similar chemical or biologic composition to DS3032b.
  6. Subjects with an uncontrolled intercurrent illness including, but not limited to, ongoing or active infection, symptomatic congestive heart failure, unstable angina pectoris, cardiac arrhythmia, or psychiatric illness/social situations that would limit compliance with study requirements, in the opinion of the Principal Investigator.
  7. Subjects who are pregnant or breast-feeding
  8. Subjects with an uncontrolled infection requiring intravenous antibiotics, antivirals, or antifungals, known human immunodeficiency virus infection, or active hepatitis A, B or C infection.
  9. Subjects with gastrointestinal conditions that could affect the absorption of DS-3032b in the opinion of the Investigator.
  10. Subjects with prolongation of corrected QT interval by Fridericia's method (QTcF) at rest, where the mean QTcF interval is >450 milliseconds (ms) for males and > 470 ms for females based on electrocardiogram (ECG).
  11. Subjects who have required plasmapheresis and exchange less than 2 weeks prior to initiation of therapy with DS3032b.
  12. Subjects with a "currently active" second malignancy, other than non-melanoma skin cancer and carcinoma in situ of the cervix, should not be enrolled. Subjects are not considered to have a "currently active" malignancy if they have completed therapy for a prior malignancy, are disease free from prior malignancies for >5 years, and are considered by their physician to be at less than 30% risk of relapse. In addition, subjects with basal or squamous cell carcinoma of the skin, superficial carcinoma of the bladder, carcinoma of the prostate with a current prostate-specific antigen (PSA) value of <0.5 ng/mL, or cervical intraepithelial neoplasia will be eligible. Finally, subjects who are on hormonal therapy for a history of either prostate cancer or breast cancer may enroll, provided that there has been no evidence of disease progression during the previous three years.
  13. Substance abuse or medical, psychological, or social conditions that, in the opinion of the Investigator, may interfere with the subject's participation in the clinical study or evaluation of the clinical study results.
  14. Subjects with prior treatment with an MDM2 inhibitor.
  15. Nonclinical studies indicate that DS-3032b is metabolized by CYP3A4/5. Drugs that are strong inhibitors or inducers of these enzymes may alter the PK of DS-3032b and should therefore be avoided. St. John's wort (hypericin) therefore will not be permitted for 30 days before and during participation in the study. Because DS-3032b is a substrate for CYP3A4/5 and grapefruit juice is a CYP3A4/5 inhibitor, foods or beverages containing grapefruit should not be taken within 48 hours before initial dose of study drug and throughout the duration of the study.
