This phase I/II trial is evaluating how safe, tolerable and effective a new targeted therapy (APG-2575) is when combined with other treatment regimens (Pd or DRd) in people with relapsed or refractory multiple myeloma and immunoglobin light chain amyloidosisA Phase Ib/II Open-Label Study of APG-2575 in Combination With Novel Therapeutic Regimens in Subjects With Relapsed or Refractory Multiple Myeloma and Immunoglobin Light Chain Amyloidosis

Clinical summary


This study has two arms, which are independent of each other, and each arm consists of dose escalation and dose expansion phases. In the dose escalation phase, APG-2575 will be administered at increasing doses until the recommended phase 2 dose (RP2D) is determined. In Arm 1, participants will receive APG-2575 in combination with Pomalidomide (4mg daily x 21 days) and dexamethasone (40mg for patients ≤ 75 years old or 20 mg for patients > 75 years old; on Days 1, 8, 15, and 22 of a repeated 28-day cycle). In Arm 2, participants will receive APG2575 in combination with Lenalidomide (25mg orally on Days 1-21 of each 28-day cycle), dexamethasone (40 mg [or 20 mg for patients > 75 years old] once weekly), and daratumumab (administered intravenously, 16mg/kg weekly in cycles 1 and 2 and then every 2 weeks in cycles 3-6 and every 4 weeks thereafter).

Scientific Title

A Phase Ib/II Open-Label Study of APG-2575 in Combination With Novel Therapeutic Regimens in Subjects With Relapsed or Refractory Multiple Myeloma and Immunoglobin Light Chain Amyloidosis



  1. ≥ 18 years of age
  2. MM patients (for Arm A and Arm B): Patients with Relapsed/Refractory MM per 2016 IMWG criteria, previously treated with at least 1 but not more than 4 prior lines of therapy for MM. Refractory MM, meanwhile, is defined as disease that progresses on salvage therapy or progresses within 60 days of the last treatment.

    AL amyloidosis patients (for Arm C ONLY): Patients with AL amyloidosis when meeting:

    i. histochemical diagnosis based on detection by polarizing microscopy of green birefringent material in Congo red-stained tissue specimens, the type must have been confirmed unequivocally.

    ii. have symptomatic organ involvement. Only purpura and/or carpal tunnel syndrome are not acceptable.

    iii. have at least one prior line of systemic therapy for AL. Patients who do not achieve at least a PR to frontline therapy in 3 months are eligible.

    iv. All MM/AL patients should have measurable disease of AL amyloidosis as defined by at least ONE of the following:

    • Serum monoclonal protein ≥1.0 g/dl by protein electrophoresis
    • >200 mg of monoclonal protein in the urine on 24-hour electrophoresis
    • Serum differential FLC concentration (dFLC, difference between amyloid forming [involved] and nonamyloid forming [uninvolved] free light chain [FLC]) > 5 mg/dL; OR serum FLC of 7.5 mg/dL provided the κ/λ FLC ratio is abnormal (κ/λ <0.26 for patients with monoclonal λ FLC, κ/λ >1.65 for patients with monoclonal κ FLC).
  3. Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) ≤ 2
  4. Life expectancy ≥ 6 months
  5. Adequate hematologic function defined as:

    1. ANC ≥1.0 x 10^9/L independent of growth factor support within 7 days of the first dose with study drug
    2. Hemoglobin ≥8 g/dL without transfusion or growth factor support within 7 days of the first dose of study drug
    3. Platelet count ≥ 50 x 10^9/L without transfusion support within 7 days of the first dose of study drug (for MM patients); or platelet count ≥ 100 x 10^9/L or ≥ 50 x 10^9/L if bone marrow involvement independent of transfusion support in either (for AL amyloidosis patients).
  6. Adequate hepatic and renal function defined as:

    1. AST and ALT < 3 x upper limit of normal (ULN)
    2. Creatinine clearance >30 mL/min (for MM patients); or Creatinine ≤3 mg/dL and CrCL ≥25 ml/min using the Cockcroft-Gault formula (for AL amyloidosis patients)
    3. Bilirubin< 1.5 x ULN (Except if considered secondary to Gilbert's syndrome and primarily indirect bilirubinemia)
  7. PT/INR ≤2 x ULN and PTT (or aPTT) ≤2 x ULN
  8. Female subjects who are of non-reproductive potential (i.e., post-menopausal by history: no menses for ≥2 year; or history of hysterectomy; or history of bilateral tubal ligation; or history of bilateral oophorectomy). Female subjects of childbearing potential must have a negative serum pregnancy test upon study entry.
  9. Male and female subjects who agree to use highly effective methods of birth control (e.g., condoms, implants, injectables, combined oral contraceptives, some intrauterine devices[IUDs], sexual abstinence, or sterilized partner) during the period of therapy and for 90 days after the last dose of study drug
  10. Ability to complete questionnaire(s) by themselves or with assistance (For AL amyloidosis patients only)


  1. MM patients with newly diagnosed MM, previously untreated for MM or only had been treated with localized palliative treatment or steroids less than equivalent of dexamethasone 40 mg daily for 4 days). AL amyloidosis patients with AL amyloidosis have not been treated with any systemic therapy, or AL amyloidosis clinically overt multiple myeloma i.e. original CRAB criteria.
