Phase 2 Study Applying Innovative Minimal Residual Disease (MRD) Techniques for Participants with Previously Untreated Multiple Myeloma Treated with Daratumumab, Bortezomib, Lenalidomide, and Dexamethasone (D-VRd) Prior To and After High-dose Therapy Followed by Autologous Stem Cell Transplantation (ASCT) - TAURUS

Study map

Overview / Summary

200 subjects will be enrolled in a single arm treatment with Daratumumab, Velcade (Bortezomib), Lenalidomide and Dexamethasone. D-VRd will be administered for 4 induction cycles prior to and 2 consolidation cycles following autologous stem cell transplantation. Samples will be obtained post-

induction and post-consolidation to evaluate Mass Spectrometry Minimal Residual Disease (MS-MRD) using blood samples to compare it with the Minimal Residual Disease (BM-MRD) using bone marrow samples. There will be no maintenance or FU in this study. The primary endpoint is to compare MRD measurements by NGS (BM) and MS (M-protein measurement in peripheral blood [PB]) at post-consolidation timepoint in transplant-eligible NDMM participants treated with D-VRd prior to and after ASCT.
