Trial summary

The study aims to determine the efficacy of combination therapy with Carfilzomib and Dexamethasone and Belantamab mafodotin (BelaMaf-Kd) for patients with relapsed refractory multiple myeloma.  Belantamab mafodotin is a new drug which has not been approved for use by the Therapeutic Goods Administration and so this combination is considered an experimental treatment.

Who is it for?
You may be eligible to participate in this trial if you are aged 18 years or over, and have received between 1 to 3 prior lines of therapy for multiple myeloma but have not undergone allogeneic stem cell transplantation.

Study Details
Eligible participants will receive 6 cycles of combination BelaMafKd with treatment given over a 28 day cycle as tolerated. Belantamab mafodotin and Carfilzomib will be delivered by IV infusion on days 1 and 8 and days 1, 8 and 15 respectively. Dexamethasone will be given orally weekly. 

Participants will be required to have blood samples taken and medical reviews (including ophthalmic examination) at the beginning of each cycle. An ultrasound test of cardiac function will be performed at screening and within 2 weeks of completion of cycle 6. A bone marrow biopsy will be performed at screening, at cycle 6 and to confirm a complete response or disease progression. These assessments will enable researchers to monitor whether the treatment is safe and whether it is effectively treating the myeloma. 
Study treatments will be halted if participants show disease progression, unacceptable toxicity, or upon withdrawal of consent.
A final medical assessment and ophthalmic exam will be performed at end of treatment, with follow up to continue every 12 weeks until one year after the final cycle of treatment.

Follow up assessments will continue every 12 weeks until one year after the final cycle of treatment.

It is hoped that the findings of this trial will establish the benefits of Belantamab mafodotin in combination with Carfilzomib and Dexamethasone for the treatment of patients with early relapsed multiple myeloma.

Key exclusion criteria

Participants must not have had/be:
1. systemic anti-myeloma therapy within 14 days with the exception of corticosteroids equivalent to dexamethasone 160mg or greater within last 4 weeks
2. prior treatment with a monoclonal Antibody within 30 days of receiving first dose of study drugs
