This randomized phase I/II trial studies the side effects and best dose of pomalidomide and ixazomib when given together with dexamethasone and to see how well pomalidomide and dexamethasone with or without ixazomib works in treating patients with multiple myeloma that has come back. Biological therapies, such as pomalidomide and dexamethasone, may stimulate the immune system in different ways and stop cancer cells from growing. Ixazomib may stop the growth of cancer cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. It is not yet known whether pomalidomide and dexamethasone are more effective with or without ixazomib in treating multiple myeloma.
Patient must have measurable disease or non-measurable disease, defined as one or more of the following holding true:
For non-measurable disease:
Progression on lenalidomide as part of first line therapy (lenalidomide-refractory disease)
* Lenalidomide-refractory disease is defined as disease progression on or progression within 60 days of the last dose of a lenalidomide-based treatment; patients should have received at least 2 cycles of a lenalidomide-based regimen to be evaluable for refractoriness; examples: 1) progression on lenalidomide maintenance therapy after initial induction +/- consolidation; 2) initial response followed by progression on continuous lenalidomide-dexamethasone +/- elotuzumab or daratumumab
Proteasome inhibitor naive or sensitive disease; proteasome inhibitor sensitive disease is defined as a PR or better to prior proteasome inhibitor-based therapy that is maintained for >= 60 days from the last dose of the proteasome inhibitor
* A patient who receives induction therapy with lenalidomide, bortezomib and dexamethasone and achieves a PR or better but subsequently progresses on continued lenalidomide or lenalidomide-dexamethasone would be eligible provided the progression occurs 60 days or more after discontinuation of the bortezomib; similarly, ixazomib exposure is allowed provided they meet the definition of proteasome inhibitor sensitive disease
A female of childbearing potential is a sexually mature female who: 1) has not undergone a hysterectomy or bilateral oophorectomy; or 2) has not been naturally postmenopausal for at least 24 consecutive months (i.e., has had menses at any time in the preceding 24 consecutive months)
Women of childbearing potential:
Patients cannot have:
Known active hepatitis C based on:
Adequate cardiac function, defined as:
No strong inducers of cytochrome P450 (CYP) 3A4 or CYP1A2 or strong inhibitors of CYP3A4 or CYP1A2 within 14 days prior to registration
Patients with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection are eligible, provided they meet the following:
