Study Design
Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment
Name: Pomalidomide Type: Drug
Name: Dexamethasone Type: Drug
Overall Status
This trial will evaluate the efficacy and safety of combination third-line treatment of pomalidomide (POM) and low-dose dexamethasone (LD-Dex) in subjects with relapsed or refractory multiple myeloma who have received a second line treatment of lenalidomide-based therapy.

This trial will test the hypothesis that the proportion of patients will have an Overall Response Rate (ORR) of > 30 % to reveal that Pomalidomide is efficacious in pre-treated patients who are refractory to lenalidomide.
Detailed Description
This is a multi-center, single-arm, open-label, phase 2 trial designed to further evaluate the efficacy and safety of combination pomalidomide and low-dose dexamethasone in subjects with relapsed or refractory multiple myeloma who received a lenalidomide-based regimen in the second line.

This trial will assess, Overall Response Rate (ORR), Overall Survival (OS), Progression-Free Survival (PFS), Duration of Response (DoR), Time to Response (TTR), Time to Progression(TTP) and safety.

Females with child-bearing potential (FCBP† ) must agree to use 2 reliable forms of contraception simultaneously or practice complete abstinence from heterosexual contact for at least 28 days before starting study drug, while participating in the study (including during dose interruptions), and for at least 28 days after study treatment discontinuation and must agree to regular pregnancy testing during this timeframe.

10. Females must agree to abstain from breastfeeding during study participation and 28 days after study drug discontinuation.

11. Males must agree to use a latex condom during any sexual contact with female of childbearing potential (FCBP) while participating in the study and for 28 days following discontinuation from this study, even if he has undergone a successful vasectomy.

12. Males must also agree to refrain from donating semen or sperm during the treatment phase and for 28 days after discontinuation from this study treatment.

13. All subjects must agree to refrain from donating blood while on study therapy and for 28 days after discontinuation from this study treatment.

- Severe renal impairment (Creatinine Clearance < 30 mL/min) requiring dialysis.

- Corrected serum calcium > 11.5 mdL (> 2.8 mmol/L)

- Hemoglobin < 8 dL (< 4.9 mmol/L; prior red blood cell transfusion or recombinant human erythropoietin use is permitted)
