This is a multi-center, single-arm, open-label, Phase 2 study in patients with newly
diagnosed multiple myeloma (NDMM) eligible for high dose therapy (HDT) and autologous stem
cell transplant (ASCT).
In this research study, investigators are evaluating whether isatuximab is safe and effective
in participants with newly diagnosed multiple myeloma when given in combination with
lenalidomide, bortezomib, and dexamethsone.
- This research study involves administration of a four-drug chemotherapy regimen that
combines the Investigational drug isatuximab with a standard chemotherapy regimen
comprised of lenalidomide, bortezomib, and dexamethasone.
- This 4-drug regimen is not considered standard of the treatment of newly diagnosed
This research study is a Phase II clinical trial. Phase II clinical trials test the safety
and effectiveness of an investigational drug or combination of drugs to learn whether the
drug works in treating a specific disease. "Investigational" means that the drug is being
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved lenalidomide, bortezomib, and
dexamethasone as treatment options for this disease but the combination of these agents with
isatuximab hasn't been approved.

willing and able to comply with the requirements of the RevAssist REMS® program.
- Ability to understand and the willingness to sign a written informed consent document
- Participant is considered eligible for ASCT by the treating physician.
- Prior therapy for multiple myeloma
- Diagnosed or treated for another malignancy within 3 years prior to enrollment, with
the exception of complete resection of basal cell carcinoma or squamous cell carcinoma

- Central nervous system involvement.
- Peripheral neuropathy ≥ Grade 3, or Grade 2 with pain on clinical examination during
the screening period.
- Any medical or psychiatric illness that in the Investigator's opinion, would impose
excessive risk to the patient or would adversely affect his/her participating in this
- Concurrent uncontrolled cardiovascular conditions, including uncontrolled
hypertension, uncontrolled cardiac arrhythmias, symptomatic congestive heart failure,
unstable angina, Grade 3 thromboembolic event or myocardial infarction within the past
- Prior major surgical procedure or radiation therapy within 4 weeks of initiation of
therapy (this does not include limited course of radiation used for management of bone
pain within 7 days of initiation of therapy).
- Daily requirement for corticosteroids (equivalent to > 10 mg/day prednisone for more
than 7 days (except for inhalation corticosteroids).
- Concurrent symptomatic amyloidosis or plasma cell leukemia
- POEMS syndrome (plasma cell dyscrasia with polyneuropathy, organomegaly,
endocrinopathy, monoclonal protein and skin changes)
- Known active infection requiring parenteral or oral anti-infective treatment within 14
days of start of therapy.
- Active hepatitis B or hepatitis C viral infection
- Pregnant or breastfeeding female or female who intends to become pregnant during the
participation in the study. Females of childbearing potential (FCBP) unwilling to
prevent pregnancy by the use of 2 reliable methods of contraception for ≥4 weeks
before the start of study treatment, during treatment (including dose interruptions),
and up to 3 months following the last dose of study treatment and/or who are unwilling
or unable to be tested for pregnancy before study treatment initiation (2 negative
tests), weekly during 1st month of treatment and then prior each treatment cycle
administration or every 2 weeks in case or irregular menstrual cycles up to 3 months
following the last dose of study treatment.
- Male participants who disagree to practice true abstinence or disagree to use a condom
during sexual contact with a pregnant female or a FCBP while participating in the
study, during dose interruptions and at least 3 months following study treatment
discontinuation, even if has undergone a successful vasectomy.
- Note 1: a FCBP is a female who: 1) has achieved menarche at some time point, 2)
has not undergone a hysterectomy or bilateral oophorectomy or 3) 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).
- Note 2: True abstinence is acceptable when this is in line with the preferred and
usual lifestyle of the patient. Periodic abstinence (eg, calendar, ovulation,
symptothermal, post-ovulation methods) and withdrawal are not acceptable methods
