GSK 207497 (DREAMM 6): A phase I/II, open-label, dose escalation and expansion study to evaluate safety, tolerability, and clinical activity of the antibody-drug conjugate GSK2857916 administered in combination with lenalidomide plus dexamethasone (Arm A), or bortezomib plus dexamethasone (Arm B) in participants with relapsed/refractory multiple myeloma (RRMM)


This study will evaluate the safety and tolerability profile of GSK2857916 when administered in combination with approved regimens of either lenalidomide plus dexamethasone [Len/Dex (Arm A)] or bortezomib plus dexamethasone [Bor/Dex (Arm B)] in participants with RRMM, i.e., those who have relapsed or who are refractory to at least one line of approved therapy. Part 1 of the study is a dose escalation phase to evaluate the safety and tolerability of up to 3 dose levels and up to two dosing schedules of GSK2857916 in combination with the two standard of care (SoC) regimens. Part 2 will further evaluate the safety and preliminary clinical activity of GSK2857916 at selected dose levels and dosing schedules in combination with Len/Dex or Bor/Dex.

Primary Study Objective(s)

  • Dose escalation: Determine safety, tolerability of GSK2857916 in combination with either Len/Dex (Arm A) or Bor/Dex (Arm B) to establish a recommended dose range and schedule to evaluate in dose expansion for participants with RRMM
  • Dose escalation and expansion: Select the dose(s) and dosing schedule for further investigation based on safety and tolerability of GSK2857916 in combination with either Len/Dex (Arm A) or Bor/Dex (Arm B) for participants with RRMM
  • Dose expansion: To determine preliminary clinical activity of GSK2857916 in combination with either Len/Dex (Arm A) or Bor/Dex (Arm B) for participants with RRMM

Core eligibility

Note: This is only a partial list of eligibility criteria.

Including patients who:

  • Are capable of giving signed informed consent.
  • Are male or female, 18 years or older (at the time consent is obtained)
  • Have confirmed diagnosis of Multiple Myeloma (MM) as defined by the IMWG

  • Have undergone stem cell transplant (SCT), or are considered transplant ineligible
  • Have been previously treated with at least 1 prior line of MM therapy, and must have documented disease progression during or after their most recent therapy according to the IMWG criteria
  • Have at least ONE aspect of measurable disease, defined as one the following: Urine M-protein excretion >=200 milligram (mg)/24 hours, or; Serum M-protein concentration >=0.5 gram (g)/deciliter (dL) (>=5.0 g/Liter), or; Serum free light chain (FLC) assay: involved FLC level >=10 mg/dL (>=100 mg/L) and an abnormal serum FLC ratio (<0.26 or >1.65)
  • Have a history of autologous SCT (these patients are eligible for study participation provided the following eligibility criteria are met: Autologous SCT was >100 days prior to study enrollment; No active bacterial, viral, or fungal infection(s) present; Participant meets the remainder of the eligibility criteria.)
  • Have had prior treatment, provided that related toxicities (defined by National Cancer Institute Common Toxicity Criteria for Adverse Events [NCI-CTCAE], Version 4.03, 2010) are <= grade 1 at the time of enrollment, except for alopecia (Participants with Grade 2 neuropathy can be enrolled into Len/Dex treatment arm, but not into Bor/Dex treatment arm.)
  • Have adequate organ system functions as defined by the laboratory assessments
  • Are females using contraceptives, provided they are consistent with local regulations, regarding methods of contraception for those participating in clinical studies (A female participant is eligible to participate if she is not pregnant or breastfeeding, and at least one of the following conditions applies: is not a woman of child bearing potential (WOCBP) or Is a WOCBP and using a contraceptive method that is highly effective (with a failure rate of <1% per year), preferably with low user dependency, during the intervention period and for at least 120 days after the last dose of study intervention and agrees not to donate eggs [ova, oocytes] for the purpose of reproduction during this period. WOCBP must have 2 negative highly sensitive serum pregnancy tests, as required by local regulations [first within 14 days of Cycle 1 Day 1 and the second one within 24 hours of dosing on Cycle1 Day1] and agree to use effective contraception during the study and for 120 days after the last dose of study medication; Additional requirements for pregnancy testing during and after study intervention [i.e., REMS program for WOCBP taking lenalidomide].The investigator is responsible for review of medical history, menstrual history, and recent sexual activity to decrease the risk for inclusion of a woman with an early undetected pregnancy.)
  • Are males using contraception, provided they are consistent with local regulations regarding the methods of contraception for those participating in clinical studies
  • Are male and agree to refrain from donating sperm and either be abstinent from heterosexual intercourse as their preferred and usual lifestyle (abstinent on a long term and persistent basis) and agree to remain abstinent from the time of first dose of study until 140 days after the last dose of study treatment to allow for clearance of any altered sperm: OR Agree to use a male condom and female partner to use an additional highly effective contraceptive method with a failure rate of <1% per year when having sexual intercourse with a WOCBP who is not currently pregnant. If the female partner of the male participant is pregnant at the time of enrollment, or becomes pregnant during the trial, the male participant must agree to remain abstinent (if it is consistent with their preferred and usual lifestyle) or use a male condom. Additional criteria WOCBP participants in Arm A: Due to lenalidomide being a thalidomide analogue with risk for embryofetal toxicity and prescribed under a restricted distribution program called the REVLIMID (Lenalidomide) REMS program, WOCBP participants will be eligible if they commit either to abstain continuously from heterosexual sexual intercourse or to use two methods of reliable birth control, beginning 4 weeks prior to initiating treatment with lenalidomide, during therapy, during dose interruptions and continuing for 120 days following discontinuation of treatment.
