Disease: Relapsed or Refractory Multiple Myeloma, MM, (NCT05182073)

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 plasma cells, a type of white blood cell. In myeloma, these abnormal cells multiply uncontrollably, 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.

Relapsed myeloma refers to when a patient had active treatment that their disease responded to, went off treatment and then the disease came back. 

Refractory myeloma is a disease that is progressing despite active treatment.


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 I dose-finding study of FT576 as monotherapy and in combination with the monoclonal antibody daratumumab in multiple myeloma (MM). The study will consist of a dose-escalation stage and an expansion stage.

FT576 incorporates four functional modifications: a proprietary CAR that targets BCMA; a novel high-affinity 158V, non-cleavable CD16 (hnCD16) Fc receptor, which has been modified to augment ADCC; an IL-15 receptor fusion (IL-15RF) that promotes enhanced NK cell activity; and the elimination of CD38 expression to mitigate the potential for NK cell fratricide. Together, these features are intended to enable multi-antigen targeting of myeloma cells, augment ADCC, enhance cell persistence and prevent anti-CD38 monoclonal antibody-induced fratricide.
