Multiple Myeloma Clinical Trial
Frailty Score-guided Dosing of Lenalidomide, Dexamethasone and Daratumumab Induction Therapy
This is a multi-institution, prospective, single arm Phase II trial of lenalidomide in a combination with dexamethasone and daratumumab (DRd lite) with no blinding or randomization. This study will enroll 44 patients over 36 months.

Written informed consent and HIPAA authorization for release of personal health information. NOTE: HIPAA authorization may be included in the informed consent or obtained separately.
Newly diagnosed, symptomatic MM who have frailty score of 1 or higher; patients age ≥ 75 or younger patients with comorbidities (<75):
Frailty score takes into account age, as well as the geriatric assessments incorporating 3 tools: the Katz Activity of Daily Living (ADL), the Lawton Instrumental Activity of Daily Living (IADL), and the Charlson Comorbidity Index (CCI)-see detailed tables in Appendix A.

ECOG (Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group) Performance Status of 0-2 within 14 days prior to registration.
Measurable disease according to the International Myeloma Working Group criteria:
Serum M-protein ≥1 g/dL
Urine M-protein ≥200 mg/24 h, or
Serum FLC (free light-chain) assay: involved FLC level ≥10 mg/dL provided serum FLC ratio is abnormal
Clonal bone marrow plasma cells ≥ 10%
No prior systemic therapy for myeloma is allowed. Surgery such as vertebroplasty or intramedullary rod placements, and local palliative radiation are allowed as long as subjects have no residual AEs (adverse events) from prior therapies at the time of screening
Life expectancy of >3 months as determined by the treating physician.
Demonstrate adequate organ function as defined in the table below; all screening labs to be obtained within 14 days prior to registration.
System Laboratory Value Hematological* Absolute Neutrophil Count (ANC) ≥ 1.0 K/mm3 Platelet ≥ 50 K/mm3 Hemoglobin (Hgb) ≥ 8 g/dL Renal Calculated creatinine clearance ≥ 30 mL/min using 24 hour urine creatinine clearance Hepatic Bilirubin ≤ 2 × upper limit of normal (ULN) Aspartate aminotransferase (AST) ≤ 2 × ULN Alanine aminotransferase (ALT) ≤ 2 × ULN Coagulation International Normalized Ratio (INR) or Prothrombin Time (PT) Activated Partial Thromboplastin Time (aPTT) ≤ 2 × ULN
Females of childbearing potential must have a negative serum pregnancy test within 14 days prior to registration. NOTE: Females are considered of child bearing potential unless they are surgically sterile (have undergone a hysterectomy, bilateral tubal ligation, or bilateral oophorectomy) or they are naturally postmenopausal for at least 12 consecutive months
Females of childbearing potential and males must be willing to abstain from heterosexual activity or to use one highly effective method of contraception and one barrier method from the time of informed consent until 3 months after treatment discontinuation. The birth control method must include 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 with confirmation of procedure) and one additional effective contraceptive method (male latex or synthetic condom, diaphragm, or cervical cap).
As determined by the enrolling physician or protocol designee, ability of the subject to understand and comply with study procedures for the entire length of the study
Prior or concurrent exposure to any of the following:
To daratumumab or other anti-CD-38 therapies
Maximum of 40 mg dexamethasone (or equivalent) daily for a maximum of 4 days consecutively up to 21 days of 1st dose
Exposure to investigational drug (including investigational vaccines) or invasive investigational medical device for any indication within 4 weeks or 5 pharmacokinetic half-lives, whichever is longer, before enrollment [Cycle 1, Day 1 / Randomization]
Focal radiation therapy within 14 days prior to enrollmentrandomization with the exception of palliative radiotherapy for symptomatic management but not on measurable extramedullary plasmacytoma. Radiotherapy within 14 days prior to enrollmentrandomization on measurable extramedullary plasmacytoma is not permitted even in the setting of palliation for symptomatic management.
Known allergies, hypersensitivity, or intolerance to any of the study drugs, hyaluronidase, mannitol, sorbitol or, corticosteroids, monoclonal antibodies, human proteins, or their excipients.
Active infection requiring systemic therapy
Poorly controlled reactive airway diseases including COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) or asthma. In subjects with underlying disease of COPD or asthma, spirometric analysis is recommended. Subjects with FEV1 (forced expiratory volume at one second) < 50% is excluded.
Other medical conditions interfering with the administration of and compliance to treatments such as Cardiac disease (such as myocardial infarction within past 6 months, uncontrolled cardiac arrhythmia, congestive cardiac failure), major surgeries within past 2 weeks, plasmapheresis within past 28 days
Plasma cell leukemia or amyloidosis
Pregnant or breastfeeding
Known additional malignancy that is active and/or progressive requiring treatment; exceptions include basal cell or squamous cell skin cancer, in situ cervical or bladder cancer, or other cancer for which the subject has been disease-free for at least five years.
Active central nervous system (CNS) involvement by MM
Contraindication to receive antiplatelet or anticoagulant prophylaxis
seropositive for human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)
seropositive for hepatitis B (defined by a positive test for hepatitis B surface antigen [HBsAg]). Subjects with resolved infection (ie, subjects who are HBsAg negative but positive for antibodies to hepatitis B core antigen [anti-HBc] and/or antibodies to hepatitis B surface antigen [anti-HBs]) must be screened using real-time polymerase chain reaction (PCR) measurement of hepatitis B virus (HBV) DNA levels. Those who are PCR positive will be excluded. EXCEPTION: Subjects with serologic findings suggestive of HBV vaccination (anti-HBs positivity as the only serologic marker) AND a known history of prior HBV vaccination, do not need to be tested for HBV DNA by PCR.
seropositive for hepatitis C (except in the setting of a sustained virologic response [SVR], defined as aviremia at least 12 weeks after completion of antiviral therapy).
