The primary endpoint this study was the incidence of dose – limiting toxicities in the first treatment cycle for each cohort.. There remains a need for more effective and tolerable treatment options for patients with relapsed multiple myeloma, because nearly all patients relapse eventually and require further therapy, said Paul G. Richardson, MD Clinical Director, Jerome Lipper Center for Multiple Myeloma, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, lead author and researcher on the study. The preliminary Phase 2 data presented today support the continued investigation of the potential role of elotuzumab in combination with lenalidomide and low-dose dexamethasone as a treatment option for patients with relapsed multiple myeloma. In this study, plus bortezomib elotuzumab in 27 evaluable patients, 13 patients , an objective response and 17 achieved a clinical response, defined as minimal response or better using the combined European Group for Blood and Marrow Transplantation criteria.
The study included grade 3 and 4 adverse reactions neutropenia , lymphopenia and thrombocytopenia . The overall rate of treatment-emergent grade 3/4 adverse events was 56 percent. The overall rate of grade 3/4 elotuzumab-related adverse events was 24 percent. Of patients with infusion-related reactions, one patient , fever , lymphopenia , nausea , diarrhea , constipation and neutropenia . Continue reading
