Recruiting

Open to: All Genders

Age: 18 Years - N/A

Medical Conditions

Multiple Myeloma


This information is provided directly by researchers and we recognise that it isn't always easy to understand. We are working with researchers to improve the accessibility of this information.




This open-label, randomized study for evaluating the efficacy and safety of single agent belantamab mafodotin when compared to pom/dex in participants with RRMM. Participants will be randomized in a 2:1 ratio to receive either single agent belantamab mafodotin or pom/dex. Belantamab mafodotin will be administered intravenously at 2.5 milligram (mg)/kilogram (kg) on Day 1 (D1) of an every 3 weeks (Q3W) schedule. Pomalidomide will be administered orally at the approved starting dose of 4 mg daily on Days 1 to 21 of each 28-day cycle, with dexamethasone administered orally at a dose of 40 mg once weekly (Days 1, 8, 15, and 22). Participants in both arms will be treated until disease progression, death, unacceptable toxicity, withdrawal of consent, and lost to follow-up or end of study, whichever comes first. Approximately up to 380 participants will be randomized (320 + 60 to fulfill regional country requirements).


Start dates may differ between countries and research sites. The research team are responsible for keeping the information up-to-date.  

The recruitment start and end dates are as follows:

Apr 2020

You can take part if:

Male participants are eligible to participate if they agree to the following during the intervention period and until 5 months after the last dose of study intervention to allow for clearance of any altered sperm: Refrain from donating sperm PLUS, either: Be abstinent from heterosexual intercourse as their preferred and usual lifestyle (abstinent on a long term and persistent basis) and agree to remain abstinent OR Must agree to use contraception/barrier as detailed below depending on whether they are randomised to Arm 1 (belantamab mafodotin) or Arm 2 (pom/dex), even if they have undergone a successful vasectomy: Agree to use a male condom throughout study treatment including the 5 month* follow-up period even if they have undergone a successful vasectomy and a female partner to use an additional highly effective contraceptive method with a failure rate of <1 percent per year when having sexual intercourse with a pregnant woman or a woman of childbearing potential who is not currently pregnant. * Four weeks for male participants on Treatment Arm 2 (pom/dex). - A female participant is eligible to participate if she is not pregnant or breastfeeding, and at least one of the following conditions applies: Is not a woman of childbearing potential (WOCBP) OR Is a WOCBP and agrees to abide by the following: Arm 1 (belantamab mafodotin): Use a contraceptive method that is highly effective (with a failure rate of <1 percent per year) which includes abstinence, preferably with low user dependency during the intervention period and for 8 months after the last dose of study treatment. Arm 2 (pom/dex): Due to pomalidomide being a thalidomide analogue with risk for embryofetal toxicity and prescribed under a pregnancy prevention/controlled distribution program, WOCBP participants will be eligible if they commit either to abstain continuously from heterosexual sexual intercourse or to use two methods of reliable birth control (one method that is highly effective), beginning 4 weeks prior to initiating treatment with pomalidomide, during therapy, during dose interruptions and continuing for at least 4 weeks following discontinuation of pomalidomide treatment. Two negative pregnancy tests must be obtained prior to initiating therapy. The first test should be performed within 10-14 days and the second test within 24 hours prior to prescribing pomalidomide therapy.
