The purpose of this study is to determine the overall response rate of patients with Multiple Myeloma to the combination of Daratumumab, Ixazomib, Pomalidomide and Dexamethasone.

Official Title

Phase II Study of the Combination of Daratumumab, Ixazomib, Pomalidomide, and Dexamethasone as Salvage Therapy in Relapsed/Refractory Multiple Myeloma A University of California Hematologic Malignancies Consortium Protocol (UCHMC1809)


The purpose of this study is to determine the overall response rate of patients with Multiple Myeloma to the combination of Daratumumab, Ixazomib, Pomalidomide and Dexamethasone.

The drugs being used in this study are daratumumab ixazomib, pomalidomide, and dexamethasone. Ixazomib may stop the growth of cancer by interfering with proteasomes (the protein breakdown mechanism in the cells). Pomalidomide, and dexamethasone are standard drugs that can change and regulate the immune system and may stop cancer cells from growing. Both Ixazomib and Daratumumab are approved for use in Multiple Myeloma, but not in this combination.
