Read our disclaimer for details.
To provide early treatment access and evaluate the safety of melflufen and dexamethasone in patients with triple class refractory (TCR) multiple myeloma (MM).
Condition or disease
Relapsed and/or Refractory Multiple Myeloma
Drug: Melphalan FlufenamideDrug: Dexamethasone
This is a multicenter, expanded access program protocol to provide access to melflufen for patients with RRMM in medical need, who have progressive disease after they received a minimum of at least two prior lines of therapy, are triple-class refractory to at least one PI, at least one IMiD and at least one anti-CD38 mAb or intolerant to a specific therapeutic drug class. Patients with primary refractory MM are eligible to participate as long as they meet the criteria of being triple class refractory. They may meet these criteria for triple class refractory MM if they have received at least one PI, at least one IMiD, and at least one Anti-CD38 mAb in their first line treatment or have had at least 2 prior lines of therapy.
Choosing to participate in a study is an important personal decision. Talk with your doctor and family members or friends about deciding to join a study.

Layout table for eligibility information
Ages Eligible for Study:
18 Years and older (Adult, Older Adult)
Sexes Eligible for Study:
A clinically confirmed prior diagnosis of multiple myeloma with documented disease progression.
Triple-class refractory multiple myeloma (TCR MM). Triple-class refractory defined as refractory to at least one PI, at least one IMiD, and at least one Anti-CD38 mAb. Patients (with non-primary refractory MM) are required to have a minimum of at least 2 prior lines of therapy.
Patients with primary refractory MM are eligible if they meet the criteria for TCR MM. They may meet these criteria for TCR MM if they have received at least one PI, at least one IMiD, and at least one Anti-CD38 mAb in their first line treatment or have had at least 2 prior lines of therapy.

Other investigational therapies within 4 weeks of initiation of therapy.
Prednisone up to but no more than 10 mg orally q.d. or its equivalent for symptom management of comorbid conditions is permitted but dose should be stable for at least 7 days prior to initiation of therapy.
Prior stem cell transplant (autologous and/or allogeneic) within 6 months of initiation of therapy.
Prior allogeneic stem cell transplant with active graft-versus-host- disease (GVHD);
