Carfilzomib, Pomalidomide, and Dexamethasone in Treating Patients With Relapsed or Refractory Multiple Myeloma

          The study will investigate the effects of adding carfilzomib to the combination of pomalidomide and dexamethasone in sequential dose escalation cohorts in patients with relapsed or refractory multiple myeloma. This portion of the study is complete.

This study will also investigate the effects of adding daratumumab to the combination of carfilzomib, pomalidomide and dexamethasone.
        

Est. Enrollment: 101 participants

info
The number of participants in a clinical study. The "estimated" enrollment is the target number of participants the researchers need for the study.

Study Start Date: Aug 13, 2012

info
These are the dates the researchers think the study will start and end.

Study Completion Date: Nov 01, 2024

info
The "estimated" study completion date is the date the researchers think the last participant in a clinical study was examined or received an intervention/treatment. This is also the expected date that the study will be completed

Age: 18+ years
