Brief Summary:

Myeloma patients with renal impairment need a rapid and effective reduction of tumor burden to enable renal recovery, which is correlated with prognosis of the patients. However, effective combination regimens are often hampered by necessary dose reductions or increased toxicity in renally impaired patients. The well known positive effects on renal impairment by Bortezomib combined with Daratumumab, which, as all monoclonal Antibody, is not renally excreted or metabolized and as so far known should not add significant toxicity but efficacy, makes the proposed combination of Daratumumab, Bortezomib and Dexamethasone highly attractive for renally impaired MM patients.

In the current clinical trials with Daratumumab patients with renal function impairment (GFR ≤ 20 ml/min) were so far excluded. Consequently questions about efficacy, safety and pharmacokinetics of Daratumumab in combination with Bortezomib and Dexamethasone in patients with relapsed and refractory MM and severe renal impairment are still unanswered. This trial will answer these questions for a patient group, who has still an unmet need for novel and effective treatment options

Layout table for eligibility information
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 be at least 18 years of age
  2. Written informed consent
  3. Subjects must have had documented multiple myeloma requiring treatment as defined by the criteria below:

    Monoclonal plasma cells in the bone marrow > 10% and/or presence of a biopsy-proven plasmacytoma at some point in their disease history requiring treatment according diagnostic criteria (IMWG updated criteria 2014, Rajkumar et al. 2014) see appendix I With measurable disease at screening (serum M-protein > 500 mg/dl or urine M-protein > 200 mg/24h, in case of oligosecretory MM serum free light chain > 10 mg/dl and abnormal kappa/lambda free light chain ratio)

  4. GFR < 30 ml/min and /or subjects undergoing hemodialysis
  5. Subject must have received at least 1 prior treatment line
  6. Subjects must have documented evidence of progressive disease after the last treatment line
  7. ECOG performance status 0-3 (ECOG 3 is only allowed if due to myeloma disease)
  8. Subjects must have certain pretreatment laboratory values meeting the following criteria during the Screening Phase:

    1. Hemoglobin ≥7.5 g/dl (4,66 mmol/L; prior red blood cells (RBC) transfusion or recombinant human erythropoietin use is permitted).
    2. Absolute neutrophil count ≥ 1.0 x109/L (granulocyte colony stimulating factor (GCSF) use is permitted);
    3. Platelet count more or equal 70 x109/L for subjects in whom ˂ 50% of bone marrow nucleated cells are plasma cells; otherwise platelet count ˃ 50 x 109/L (transfusions are not permitted to achieve this minimum platelet count ),
    4. Aspartate aminotransferase (AST) ≤ 2,5 x upper limit of normal (ULN);
    5. Alanine aminotransferase (ALT) ≤ 2,5 x ULN
    6. Total bilirubin ≤ 2.0 x ULN ,except in subjects with congenital bilirubinemia, such as Gilbert syndrome (direct bilirubin ≤ 2.0 x ULN
    7. Corrected serum calcium ≤ 14 mg/dl (≤3,5mmol/L); or free ionized calcium ˂ 6,5 mg/dL(˂1,6 mmol/L)
  9. Women of childbearing potential must commit to either abstain continuously from heterosexual sexual intercourse or to use 2 methods of reliable birth control simultaneously. This includes one highly effective form of contraception (tubal ligation, intrauterine device [IUD], hormonal [birth control pills, injections, hormonal patches, vaginal rings or implants] or partner's vasectomy) and one additional effective contraceptive method (male latex or synthetic condom, diaphragm, or cervical cap). Contraception must begin 4 weeks prior to dosing. Reliable contraception is indicated even where there has been a history of infertility, unless due to hysterectomy.
  10. A woman of childbearing potential must have a negative urine or serum pregnancy test at screening within 14 days prior to treatment start.
