Study objectives

Primary objectives
• Evaluate the efficacy defined as PFS of pomalidomide maintenance plus dexamethasone versus pomalidomide maintenance in patients who responded (≥ PR) to the combination of pomalidomide (POM), carfilzomib (CAR) and low dose dexamethasone (LD-DEX) for induction and consolidation.
• Evaluate efficacy of the combination of pomalidomide (POM), carfilzomib (CAR) and low dose dexamethasone (LD-DEX) for induction and consolidation in subjects with relapsed or refractory multiple myeloma (MM) after prior first-line treatment in the EMN02/HO95 trial who are refractory to Lenalidomide and/or Bortezomib. This objective will be investigated in patients who have or have not received a prior autologous transplant.

Secondary objectives
• Evaluate the response rate ( after 8 cycles of PCd) before the start of maintenance.
• Evaluate the safety and tolerability of the combination of pomalidomide, carfilzomib and low dose dexamethasone in subjects with relapsed or refractory multiple myeloma.

• Evaluation of biomarkers, including baseline markers predictive of response to pomalidomide combined with carfilzomib and dexamethasone.
• Evaluate the quality of life

Evaluate the gene expression profiles and SNPs in relation to the treatment outcomes and side-effects

2. Patient eligibility criteria

Inclusion criteria

• Included in EMN02/HO95 trial
• The subject must understand and voluntarily sign an informed consent document prior to any study related assessments/procedures.
• Age ≥ 18 years at the time of signing the informed consent form.
• Able to adhere to the study visit schedule and other protocol requirements.
• Documented diagnosis of multiple myeloma and measurable disease (serum M-protein ≥ 10 g/L or urine M-protein ≥ 200 mg/24 hours or abnormal FLC ratio with involved free light chain (FLC) > 100 mg/L) or proven plasmacytoma by biopsy).
• At least prior anti-myeloma regimen according to the EMN02/HO95 trial and documented progression or refractory multiple myeloma as per the IMWG uniform response criteria (Durie, 2006) during or after the last anti-myeloma regimen. Induction therapy followed by autologous stem cell transplant (AutoSCT) and consolidation/ maintenance will be considered as one regimen.
• Patients who have never achieved a response better than PD after at least 2 cycles of lenalidomide containing therapy or who progressed whilst on treatment.
• Normal renal function with a Creatinine Clearance > 45mL/min according to the Modification of Diet in Renal Disease (MDRD) equation for estimation of Glomerular Filtration Rate (GFR)
• WHO performance status score of 0, 1 or 2.
• Patients must be willing and capable to use adequate contraception during the therapy (all men, all pre-menopausal women).
• Patients must be able to adhere to the requirements of the Pregnancy Prevention Risk Management Plan.
• All subjects must agree to refrain from donating blood while on study drug and for 28 days after discontinuation from this study treatment.
• All subjects must agree not to share medication.

Exclusion criteria

• Absolute neutrophil count (ANC) <1.0 x 109/L, unless related to MM.
• Platelet count < 75 x 109/L, unless related to MM.
• Corrected serum calcium > 14 mg/dL (> 3.5 mmol/L).
• Hemoglobin < 8 g/dL (< 4.9 mmol/L; prior RBC transfusion or recombinant human erythropoietin use is permitted).
• Significant hepatic dysfunction (Serum SGOT/AST or SGPT/ALT > 3.0 x upper limit of normal (ULN) or serum total bilirubin > 3.0 x ULN)
• Prior history of malignancies, other than MM, unless the subject has been free of the disease for ≥ 5 years. Exceptions include the following:
Basal or squamous cell carcinoma of the skin.
Carcinoma in situ of the cervix or breast.
Incidental histological finding of prostate cancer (TNM stage of T1a or T1b).
• Previous therapy with pomalidomide or carfilzomib.
• Hypersensitivity to thalidomide, lenalidomide, bortezomib or dexamethasone (this includes ≥ Grade 3 rash during prior thalidomide or lenalidomide or bortezomib therapy).
• Peripheral neuropathy ≥ Grade 2.
• Subjects who received an allogeneic bone marrow or allogeneic peripheral blood stem cell transplant less than 12 months prior to initiation of study treatment.
• LVEF ≤ 40%.
• QTc > 450 msec.
• History of torsade de pointe.
• History of ventricular tachycardia, ventricular fibrillation.
• Uncontrolled atrial fibrillation/flatter.
• Congestive heart failure (NY Heart Association Class III or IV).
• Myocardial infarction within 12 months prior to starting study treatment
• Unstable or poorly controlled angina pectoris, including Prinzmetal variant angina pectoris.
• History of pulmonary hypertension.
• Uncontrolled infection.
• Subjects who received any of the following within the last 14 days of initiation of study treatment:
Major surgery (kyphoplasty is not considered major surgery).
Use of any anti-myeloma drug therapy.
• Use of any investigational agents (with the exception of lenalidomide) within 28 days or five half-lives (whichever is longer) of treatment.
• Incidence of gastrointestinal disease that may significantly alter the absorption of pomalidomide.
• Subjects unable or unwilling to undergo antithrombotic prophylactic treatment.
• Any serious medical condition, laboratory abnormality, or psychiatric illness that would prevent the subjects from signing the informed consent form.
• Pregnant or breastfeeding females.
• Known human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) positivity, active infectious hepatitis A, B or C or chronic hepatitis B or C.
• Pre-existing pulmonary, cardiac or renal impairement that prevents hydration measures as described at section 9.5.
• Any psychological, familial, sociological and geographical condition potentially hampering compliance with the study protocol and follow-up schedule.
