Disease: Multiple myeloma, MM (NCT05069935)

Disease info:

Multiple myeloma is a cancer that develops in the bone marrow, the spongy tissue found in the centre of most bones. Multiple myeloma is characterised by abnormalities in a type of white blood cells known as the plasma cells. These abnormal cells multiply out of control, increasing from about one percent of cells in the bone marrow to the majority of bone marrow cells. The abnormal cells form tumours within the bone, causing bone pain and an increased risk of fractures.

Multiple myeloma occurs in approximately 4 per 100,000 people per year; there are currently about 100,000 affected individuals in the United States.

This is a Phase 1 dose-finding study of FT538 given in combination with a monoclonal antibody following lymphodepletion in subjects with advanced solid tumours. The study will consist of a dose-escalation stage and an expansion stage where participants will be enrolled into indication-specific cohorts. FT538 is an allogeneic gene-edited natural killer (NK)-cell immunotherapy.
