- Women who are partners of men and of childbearing potential must be practicing one of
the following methods of birth control: subcutaneous hormonal implant, levonorgestrel
releasing intra-uterine system, medroxyprogesterone acetate depot, tubal
sterilization, ovulation inhibitory progesterone only pills, or sexual intercourse
with a vasectomized male partner (vasectomy must be confirmed by 2 negative semen
analyses). Or women will commit to absolute and continuous abstinence confirmed to her
physician on a monthly basis. Childbearing potential*. Contraception will start during
therapy including dose interruptions, for 4 months after discontinuation of Ixazomib
Criteria for women of childbearing potential:
This protocol defines a female of childbearing potential as a sexually mature woman who:
1. has not undergone a hysterectomy or bilateral oophorectomy or
2. has not been naturally postmenopausal (amenorrhea following cancer therapy does not
rule out childbearing potential) for at least 24 consecutive months (ie, has had
menses at any time in the preceding 24 consecutive months)
- A woman of childbearing potential must have 2 negative serum or urine pregnancy
tests at Screening, first within 28 days prior to dosing and the second within 48
hours prior to dosing, and remain on a highly effective method of birth control.
The two methods of reliable contraception must include one highly effective
method and one additional effective (barrier) method. FCBP must be referred to a
qualified provider of contraceptive methods if needed. The following are examples
of highly effective and additional effective methods of contraception:
- Highly effective methods: Intrauterine device (IUD) ; Hormonal (birth
control pills, injections, implants) ; Tubal ligation ; Partner's vasectomy
- Additional effective methods: Male condom ; Diaphragm CervicalCap
- Serum (urine in the case where serum is not possible in a timely manner)
pregnancy test to be performed for all women of childbearing potential regularly
during the study, In addition, a pregnancy test may be done at any time during
the study at the discretion of the investigator if a subject misses a period or
has unusual menstrual bleeding.
- A woman of childbearing potential must remain on a highly effective method of
birth control. Contraception must begin 4 weeks before initiating treatment with
Ixazomib and Daratumumab, during therapy, during dose interruptions and
continuing for 4 months following discontinuation of Ixazomib and Daratumumab.
Reliable contraception is indicated even where there has been a history of
infertility, unless due to hysterectomy.
- A man who has not had a vasectomy and who is sexually active with a woman of
childbearing potential must agree to use a barrier method of birth control eg,
condom with spermicidal foam/gel/film/cream/suppository, and all men must also
not donate sperm during the study, for 4 months following discontinuation of
Ixazomib and Daratumumab. The exception to this restriction is that if the
subject's female partner is surgically sterile, a second method of birth control
is not required.
- Target disease exceptions: Solitary bone/solitary extramedullary plasmocytoma ;
Patients with non-secretory MM and non-measurable MM ; Evidence of central nervous
system (CNS) involvement
- Medical history and Concurrent disease:
- Subjects with prior (≤ 5 years) or concurrent invasive malignancies except the

cancer from which the subject has been disease free for at least 3 years.
- Subject with known/underlying medical conditions that, in the investigator's
opinion would make the administration of the study drug hazardous (ie:
uncontrolled diabetes or uncontrolled coronary artery disease)

investigator including: NYHA functional classification III or IV congestive heart
failure LVEF (Left Ventricular Ejection Fraction) ≥45% ; Uncontrolled angina,
hypertension or arrhythmia Myocardial infarction in the past 6 months

any component of the treatment regimen.

understanding the informed consent, study compliance or the ability to tolerate
study procedures and/or study therapy
- Subjects with known chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) with a Forced
Expiratory Volume in 1 second (FEV1) < 50% of predicted normal. Note that FEV1
testing is required for patients suspected of having COPD and subjects must be
excluded if FEV1 <50% of predicted normal.

years (see appendix), or with uncontrolled asthma of any classification at the
time of screening (Note that subjects who currently have controlled intermittent
