Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to identify the recommended Phase 2 regimen(s) (RP2R[s]) and schedule for the study treatment (Part 1) and to characterize the safety of the RP2R(s) for the study treatment (Part 2). The RP2R will describe the combination doses and schedules of talquetamab and teclistamab to be pursued in Phase 2.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Multiple Myeloma Drug: Talquetamab Drug: Teclistamab Phase 1

Detailed Description:
Multiple myeloma is a malignant plasma cell disorder characterized by production of monoclonal proteins (M proteins), which are comprised of pathologic immunoglobulins (Ig) or fragments of such, which have subsequently lost their normal function. Talquetamab is a humanized IgG4PAA bispecific antibody designed to target G protein-coupled receptor family C group 5-member D (GPRC5D) and the CD3 molecule found on T lymphocytes (T cell). Teclistamab is a humanized IgG4PAA bispecific antibody designed to target B cell maturation antigen (BCMA) and the CD3 molecule found on T cells. Rationale for combining talquetamab and teclistamab is that, these agents promote the activation of T cells and induce myeloma cell lysis mediated by secreted perforin and various granzymes stored in the secretory vesicles of cytotoxic T cells. This study consists 3 periods: screening phase (up to 28 days), treatment phase (start of study drug administration and continues until the completion of the end of treatment [EOT] visit); and a post-treatment follow-up phase (after end of treatment and up to 16 weeks after last dose of study drug(s) for each participant). End of study is defined as last study assessment for last participant in study. Total duration of study is up to 1 years. Efficacy, safety, pharmacokinetics (PK), immunogenicity, and biomarkers will be assessed at specified time points during this study. Participants safety and study conduct will be monitored throughout the study.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Part 1: Number of Participants with Dose Limiting Toxicity (DLT) [ Time Frame: Up to 1 year ]
    The dose limiting toxicities are based on drug related adverse events and defined as any of the following events: hematological or non-hematological toxicity of grade 3 or higher.

  2. Part 1: Severity of DLT as Assessed by National Cancer Institute Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (NCI-CTCAE) [ Time Frame: Up to 1 year ]
    Severity will be graded according to the National Cancer Institute Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (NCI-CTCAE) version 5.0. Severity scale ranges from Grade 1 (Mild) to Grade 5 (Death). Grade 1= Mild, Grade 2= Moderate, Grade 3= Severe, Grade 4= Life-threatening, and Grade 5= Death related to adverse event.

  3. Part 2: Number of Participants with Adverse Events (AEs) and Serious Adverse Events (SAEs) as a Measure of Safety and Tolerability [ Time Frame: Up to 1 year ]
    An AE is any untoward medical occurrence in a clinical study participant administered a medicinal (investigational or non-investigational) product. An AE does not necessarily have a causal relationship with the intervention. SAE is any AE that results in: death, persistent or significant disability/incapacity, requires inpatient hospitalization or prolongation of existing hospitalization, is life-threatening experience, is a congenital anomaly/birth defect, and suspects transmission of any infectious agent via a medicinal product.

  4. Part 2: Number of Participants with Adverse Events and SAEs by Severity [ Time Frame: Up to 1 year ]
    Severity will be graded according to the National Cancer Institute Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (NCI-CTCAE) version 5.0. Severity scale ranges from Grade 1 (Mild) to Grade 5 (Death). Grade 1= Mild, Grade 2= Moderate, Grade 3= Severe, Grade 4= Life-threatening, and Grade 5= Death related to adverse event.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Part 1 and Part 2: Serum Concentration of Talquetamab [ Time Frame: Up to 1 year ]
    Serum samples will be analyzed to determine concentrations of talquetamab using a validated, specific, and sensitive immunoassay method.

  2. Part 1 and Part 2: Serum Concentration of Teclistamab [ Time Frame: Up to 1 year ]
    Serum samples will be analyzed to determine concentrations of teclistamab using a validated, specific, and sensitive immunoassay method.

  3. Part 1 and Part 2: Number of Participants with Anti-Drug Antibodies to Talquetamab [ Time Frame: Up to 1 year ]
    Number of participants with anti-drug antibodies to talquetamab will be assessed.

  4. Part 1 and Part 2: Number of Participants with Anti-Drug Antibodies to Teclistamab [ Time Frame: Up to 1 year ]
    Number of Participants with anti-drug antibodies to teclistamab will be assessed.

  5. Part 1 and Part 2: Overall Response Rate (ORR) [ Time Frame: Up to 1 year ]
    ORR is defined as the percentage of participants who have a partial response (PR) or better according to the International Myeloma Working Group (IMWG) criteria.

  6. Part 1 and Part 2: Very Good Partial Response (VGPR) or Better Response Rate [ Time Frame: Up to 1 year ]
    VGPR or better response rate (sCR+CR+VGPR) is defined as the percentage of participants who achieve a VGPR or better response according to the IMWG criteria.

  7. Part 1 and Part 2: Complete Response (CR) or Better Response Rate [ Time Frame: Up to 1 year ]
    CR or better response rate (sCR+CR) is defined as the percentage of participants who achieve a CR or better response according to the IMWG criteria.

  8. Part 1 and Part 2: Stringent Complete Response (sCR) Rate [ Time Frame: Up to 1 year ]
    sCR rate is defined as the percentage of participants who achieve a sCR according to the IMWG criteria.

  9. Part 1 and Part 2: Duration of Response (DOR) [ Time Frame: Up to 1 year ]
    DOR will be calculated among responders (with PR or better) from the date of initial documentation of a response (PR or better) to the date of first documented evidence of progressive disease, as defined in the IMWG criteria.

  10. Part 1 and Part 2: Time to Response [ Time Frame: Up to 1 year ]
    Time to response is defined as the time between date of first dose of study drug and the first efficacy evaluation that the participant has met all criteria for PR or better.
