Trial summary

The purpose of this study is to determine whether Isatuximab (a new drug), when combined with chemotherapy, improves response to treatment. 

Who is it for?

You may be eligible to participate in this trial if you are aged 18 years or over, have been newly diagnosed with multiple myeloma and are not a candidate for high dose chemotherapy and autologous stem cell transplant.

Study Details
Eligible participants will receive lenalidomide and dexamethasone (Ld). Participants who have inadequate response to upfront treatment with Ld, will have the addition of Isatuximab. Treatment (each cycle is 28 days) will be given until disease progression, unacceptable toxicity, or withdrawal of consent. 
Participants will be required to have blood samples taken at the beginning of each cycle along with a medical exam in order for researchers to monitor whether the treatment is safe and whether it is effectively treating the myeloma.
It is hoped that the findings of this trial will establish the benefits of Isatuximab in combination with Ld for the treatment of multiple myeloma patients early in the course of their disease.
