Condition(s) targeted: Multiple Myeloma

Intervention: ACY-1215 (Drug); lenalidomide (Drug); Dexamethasone (Drug)

Phase: Phase 1

Status: Enrolling by invitation

Sponsored by: Acetylon Pharmaceuticals Incorporated

Official(s) and/or principal investigator(s):
Noopur Raje, MD, Principal Investigator, Affiliation: Massachusetts General Hospital


The purpose of this study is to determine the best dose of ACY-1215 in combination with lenalidomide and dexamethasone in patients with relapsed or relapsed/refractory multiple myeloma. Once determined, the purpose of this study will be to determine the efficacy of ACY-1215 in combination with lenalidomide and dexamethasone in patients with relapsed multiple myeloma who have had 1-3 prior therapies and who are not lenalidomide-refractory.

Clinical Details

Official title: A Phase I/II, Open Label, Multicenter Study of ACY-1215 in Combination With Lenalidomide and Dexamethasone for the Treatment of Relapsed or Relapsed/Refractory Multiple Myeloma

Study design: Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment

Primary outcome: Establish optimal dose of ACY-1215 in combination with lenalidomide and dexamethasone

Secondary outcome:

Evaluate safety by assessing toxicities

Determine the preliminary anti-tumor activity of ACY-1215 in combination with lenalidomide and dexamethasone

Area under the plasma concentration versus time curve (AUC)

Changes in acetylated tubulin and acetylated histone levels

Also agree to ongoing pregnancy testing.

- If male, including those who have had a vasectomy, must agree to use a latex condom

during any sexual contact with a female of childbearing potential. Exclusion Criteria:

- Prior peripheral ASCT within 12 weeks of C1D1

- Prior allogeneic stem cell transplant

- Prior treatment with a histone deacetylase (HDAC) inhibitor

- Presence of an active systemic infection requiring treatment.

- History of other malignancies unless a.) the patient has undergone definitive

treatment more than 5 years prior and is without evidence of recurrent malignant disease or b.) had basal or squamous cell carcinoma of the skin; superficial carcinoma of the bladder; carcinoma of the prostate with current prostat specific antigen < 0. 1 ng/mL; ductal carcinoma in situ; or cervical intraepithelial neoplasia.

antigen-positive status or known or suspected active hepatitis C infection.
