Based on the need to improve outcomes post second autologous stem cell transplant (ASCT) for multiple myeloma (MM) and the benefits seen of maintenance treatment following initial ASCT, the natural next step is to evaluate maintenance/continuation therapy following second ASCT. Pomalidomide is active against MM cells refractory to both bortezomib and lenalidomide, making it an ideal choice for continuation therapy following second ASCT. Adding elotuzumab may increase efficacy and also the durability of responses which is essential to improving outcomes following second ASCT.
|Experimental: Elotuzumab + Pomalidomide + Dexamethasone
Patients will undergo standard of care ASCT melphalan conditioning. Administration of melphalan and the second ASCT will be done as part of routine care and procedures are not dictated by this protocol. Continuation therapy with Elo-Pom-Dex will begin between Days 80 and 120 following the second ASCT: Elotuzumab on Days 1 and 15 for Cycles 1-6 followed by 20 mg/kg on Day 1 for Cycles 7+ Pomalidomide daily on Days 1-21 of all cycles Dexamethasone on Days 1 and 15 of all cycles Continuation therapy may continue until relapse or progression.
During continuation therapy, elotuzumab will be administered on a 28-day cycle as follows: on Days 1 and 15 for Cycles 1-6 and on Day 1 for Cycles 7+. For Cycles 1-6 elotuzumab will be administered intravenously at a dose of 10 mg/kg. For Cycles 7+ elotuzumab will be administered at a dose of 20 mg/kg.
During continuation therapy, pomalidomide will be taken by mouth daily on Days 1-21 of each 28-day cycle at a starting dose of 2 mg. During continuation, pomalidomide may be dose escalated to 4 mg at the discretion of the treating physician if the 2 mg dose is tolerated.
During continuation therapy, dexamethasone will be taken by mouth at a starting dose of 40 mg. It will be given on a 28-day cycle as follows: on Days 1 and 15 for Cycles 1-6 and on Day 1 only for Cycles 7+. Sufficient quantity of drug for one cycle of therapy will be prescribed to the patient at a time.

- Histologically confirmed diagnosis of multiple myeloma.
- Received prior autologous stem cell transplantation as first line therapy for multiple
myeloma with subsequent disease relapse/progression.
- Failed 1 or 2 lines of treatment for multiple myeloma. A line of treatment includes
all therapy including induction, transplant, and maintenance administered in a
sequence in the absence of relapse/progression. Once relapse/progression occurs and
subsequently the anti-myeloma treatment is changed, a new line of treatment has begun.
Local radiation or corticosteroids will not be considered treatment for multiple
- Received 2 to 6 cycles of induction therapy per standard of care prior to 2nd
autologous stem cell transplantation
- Received standard of care melphalan conditioning for 2nd autologous stem cell
transplantation, is currently Day +80 to +120 following transplant, and is responding
to therapy (partial response or better as compared to pre-induction assessment.

and be willing and able to comply with the requirements of the POMALYST REMS® program.
For Canadian sites, patients will followed according to the Pomalidomide pregnancy
- Females of reproductive potential within the US must agree to adhere to the scheduled
pregnancy testing as required in the POMALYST REMS® program. For Canadian sites,
patients will followed according to the Pomalidomide pregnancy prevention program

- Females of childbearing potential and men must agree to use adequate contraception
(hormonal or barrier method of birth control, abstinence) prior to study entry through
Day +100 visit. Should a woman become pregnant or suspect she is pregnant while
participating in this study, she must inform her treating physician immediately.
- Able to understand and willing to sign an Institutional Review Board (IRB) approved
written informed consent document.
- Refractory to elotuzumab and/or pomalidomide, defined as progressive disease or
clinical relapse on therapy or within 60 days following completion of therapy. Prior
exposure to elotuzumab and/or pomalidomide is allowed as long as patient is not
refractory to these agents.
- More than one prior transplant prior to study entry with the exception of tandem
transplantation. Tandem transplantation is defined as two autologous stem cell
transplants that occur within 9 months of one another, and the patient did not have
disease progression in the period between the two transplants.

- History of plasma cell leukemia or MM central nervous system (CNS) involvement.
- Receiving renal replacement therapy, hemodialysis, or peritoneal dialysis.
- Diagnosed with another concurrent malignancy requiring treatment.

- Known hypersensitivity to pomalidomide, dexamethasone, or any excipients in
elotuzumab, formulation, or recombinant protein
- Receiving any other investigational agents within 14 days prior to enrollment.
- Uncontrolled intercurrent illness including, but not limited to, ongoing or active
infection, symptomatic congestive heart failure, unstable angina pectoris, or cardiac
- Pregnant and/or breastfeeding. Females of childbearing potential must have two
negative pregnancy tests. The first test should be performed within 10-14 days of
study entry, and the second test within 24 hours prior to prescribing pomalidomide.
