Brief Summary:
This study will use the drug daratumumab in patients who did not achieve at least a very good partial response (VGPR) and are already planned to have an Autologous Stem Cell Transplant (ASCT). Daratumumab will be given before the stem cell collection to attempt to get rid of any multiple myeloma cells that may be present in the stem cell collection and after the ASCT to get rid of any multiple myeloma cells that may be remaining.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Multiple Myeloma Drug: Daratumumab Phase 2

Detailed Description:
This is a single arm, two-stage, phase II study to evaluate the rate of ≥ Complete Response (CR) post-Autologous Stem Cell Transplant (ASCT) in Multiple Myeloma (MM) subjects who failed to achieve at least a Very Good Partial Response (VGPR) post initial induction therapy for newly diagnosed disease, and for whom an ASCT is planned. Subjects will be treated with four weekly doses of daratumumab before mobilization for Hematopoietic Progenitor Cells (HPC) collection, followed by high dose chemotherapy and ASCT and four weekly doses of daratumumab after ASCT. A two-stage design will be implemented. Twenty three (23) subjects will be enrolled in the first stage, and if at least 12 of the 23 subjects have at least a CR after ASCT, an additional 16 subjects will be enrolled in the second stage (a total of 39 subjects).

Drug: Daratumumab
Other Name: Darzalex

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Complete Response (CR) Rate Post-ASCT [ Time Frame: up to 100 days post-ASCT ]
    CR or better will be determined for each subject as binary variables indicating whether or not best overall response post-ASCT is a CR or better as determined by the IMWG 2016 response criteria.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. VGPR+ Rate [ Time Frame: up to 100 days post-ASCT ]
    Post ASCT VGPR+ response will be determined for each subject as a binary variable indicating whether or not the subject achieved a post-ASCT response of VGPR or better as determined by the IMWG response criteria

  2. Time to First Response (TTFR) [ Time Frame: up to 100 days post-ASCT ]
    TTFR is defined as the time from start of induction therapy to the time when the first occurrence of a post-ASCT VGPR or better was achieved.

  3. Time to Best Response (TTBR) [ Time Frame: up to 100 days post-ASCT ]
    TTBR is defined as the time from start of induction therapy to the time when the best response of VGPR or better was achieved.

  4. Duration of Response (DOR) [ Time Frame: up to 7 years ]
    DoR will be calculated separately for each subject achieving PR or better, VGPR or better, and CR or better. The DoR intervals will be calculated from the time of the first assessment that identified response until disease progression or death from any cause.

  5. Progression-Free Survival (PFS) [ Time Frame: up to 7 years ]
    PFS is defined as the duration of time from start of induction therapy to first occurrence of either progressive disease or death from any cause

  6. Time to Progression (TTP) [ Time Frame: up to 7 years ]
    TTP will be calculated in the same fashion as described for PFS with the exception that for subjects who die for causes other than disease progression.

  7. Time to Next Treatment (TTNT) [ Time Frame: up to 7 years ]
    TTNT will be calculated from start of induction therapy until the start of the first subsequent anti-cancer therapy after all protocol directed therapy is completed.

  8. Overall Survival (OS) [ Time Frame: up to 7 years ]
    OS is defined as the duration from start of induction therapy to the date of death from any cause.

  3. Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) Performance Status of 0-2 within 28 days prior to day 1 of daratumumab.
  4. Failure to achieve a VGPR or better per IMWG 2016 criteria following a three-drug induction regimen for newly diagnosed MM. Subjects must have achieved at least minimal response to induction therapy.
  5. Measurable disease at time of diagnosis (collected within 42 days prior to initiation of initial induction therapy) defined as:

    1. Serum M-protein ≥ 0.5. g/dL OR

  6. ASCT is planned for post-induction therapy.
  7. Prior radiotherapy must be completed at least 14 days prior to day 1 of daratumumab and subject must have recovered from any radiation-induced toxicities.
  8. Recovered from all reversible acute toxic effects of induction therapy (other than alopecia) to ≤Grade 1 or baseline.
