Multiple Myeloma Clinical Trial
Study of Pomalidomide to Evaluate the Pharmacokinetics and Safety for Patients With Multiple Myeloma and Impaired Renal Function (POM Renal)
The purpose of this study is to determine the pharmacokinetics (PK) and safety for the combination of pomalidomide (POM) + low-dose dexamethasone (LD- DEX) in subjects with relapsed or refractory Multiple Myeloma (RRMM) and impaired renal function.
The primary objective of the study is to determine the PK and safety for the combination of POM + (LD-DEX) in subjects with RRMM and impaired renal function.
The secondary objective of the study is to evaluate the efficacy of POM + (LD_DEX) in subjects with RRMM and impaired renal function.
This is a 3+3 dose escalation design, with one cohort each for patients with severely impaired renal function patients (CrCl < 30 mL/min) requiring and not requiring dialysis respectively. There will also be one control cohort with normal renal function, these patients will receive 4 mg POM. Dosing will be 21 days out of a 28 day cycle.
Subjects must satisfy the following criteria to be enrolled in the study:
Must be ≥ 18 years at the time of signing the informed consent form
Must understand and voluntarily sign an informed consent document prior to any study-related assessments/procedures
Must be able to adhere to the study visit schedule and other protocol requirements
Must have documented diagnosis of relapsed or refractory multiple myeloma and have measurable disease (serum M-protein ≥ 0.5 g/dL or urine M-protein ≥ 200 mg/24 hours)
Must have had at least 1 prior anti-myeloma regimen
Must have documented progression as per the International Myeloma Working Group uniform response criteria (Durie, 2006) during or after the last anti-myeloma regimen
Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status score of 0, 1, or 2
Females of childbearing potential (FCBP) must agree to utilize two reliable forms of contraception simultaneously or practice complete abstinence from heterosexual contact for at least 28 days before starting study drug, while participating in the study (including dose interruptions), and for at least 28 days after study treatment discontinuation, and must agree to regular pregnancy testing during this timeframe
Females must agree to abstain from breastfeeding during study participation and for 28 following discontinuation from study treatment
Males must agree to use a latex condom during any sexual contact with FCBP while participating in the study and for 28 days following discontinuation from study treatment, even if he has undergone a successful vasectomy
Males must also agree to refrain from donating semen or sperm while on pomalidomide and for 28 days after discontinuation from study treatment
All subjects must agree to refrain from donating blood while on study drug and for 28 days after discontinuation from study treatment
All subjects must agree not to share medication
The presence of any of the following will exclude a subject from enrollment:

Unstable or poorly controlled angina pectoris, including Prinzmetal variant angina pectoris
Subjects who received any of the following within the last 14 days of initiation of study treatment:

Radiation therapy (with the exception of radiation therapy to a pathological fracture site to enhance bone healing or to treat post-fracture pain that is refractory to narcotic analgesics)
Any anti-myeloma drug therapy
Use of any investigational agents within 28 days or 5 half-lives (whichever is longer) of initiating study treatment
Subjects with conditions requiring chronic steroid or immunosuppressive treatment, such as rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, and lupus, which likely need additional steroid or immunosuppressive treatments in addition to the study treatment. Includes subjects receiving corticosteroids (> 10 mg/day of prednisone or equivalent) within 3 weeks prior to initiating study treatment
Subjects unable or unwilling to undergo antithrombotic prophylactic treatment will not be eligible to participate in this study
Any condition, including the presence of laboratory abnormalities, which places the subject at unacceptable risk if he/she were to participate in the study
Any serious medical condition, laboratory abnormality, or psychiatric illness that would prevent the subjects from signing the informed consent form
