Principal Investigator: Raymond Comenzo, MD

The purpose of this study is to characterize cardiac safety of Daratumumab, Cyclophosphamide, Bortezomib, and Dexamethasone (D-VCd) treatment regimens (Arm A: immediate daratumumab + VCd treatment and Arm B: daratumumab + deferred VCd) in newly diagnosed systemic amyloid light chain (AL) amyloidosis with cardiac involvement and to identify potential mitigation strategies for cardiac toxicity (cohort 1); to characterize the pharmacokinetics of subcutaneous (SC) daratumumab, among racial and ethnic minorities, including Black or African American, with newly diagnosed AL amyloidosis treated with D-VCd (cohort 2).

Study details

Inclusion Criteria
  • Cohort 1: Cardiac involvement (amyloid light chain [AL] amyloidosis Mayo Cardiac Stage II and Stage IIIa) with or without other organ(s) involved; Cohort 2: One or more organs impacted by systemic AL amyloidosis according to consensus guidelines
  • Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) Performance Status score of 0, 1 or 2
  • Cohort 2 only: self-identified racial and ethnic minorities, including Black or African American
Exclusion Criteria
  • Prior therapy for systemic AL amyloidosis or multiple myeloma including medications that target cluster of differentiation 38 (CD38), with the exception of 160 milligrams(mg) dexamethasone or equivalent corticosteroid maximum exposure prior to randomization/enrollment
  • Previous or current diagnosis of symptomatic multiple myeloma per International Myeloma Working Group (IMWG) Criteria
  • Participant received any of the following therapies: - treatment with an investigational drug or used an invasive investigational medical device within 14 days or at least 5 half-lives, - vaccinated with an investigational vaccine (except for COVID-19) live, attenuated or replicating viral vector vaccines within 4 weeks prior to randomization/enrollment.
Study Requirements

This study aims to generate data on risk factors for cardiac toxicity and to evaluate the cardiac safety of the proposed treatment regimens and identify potential mitigation strategies for cardiac toxicity such as deferred VCd treatment, The study will consist of screening phase (up to 28 days) and treatment phase with up to 24 treatment cycles (each cycle is 28 days). Safety assessment will include adverse events (AEs), serious adverse events (SAEs), physical examinations, Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) criteria for performance status, laboratory tests and vital signs. The overall duration of the study will be up to 3 years and 8 months.
