Myeloma: Therapy, excluding Transplantation: Immunotherapies in Plasma Cell Disorders

955  Updated Analysis of a Phase 1, Open-Label Study of LCAR-B38M, a Chimeric Antigen Receptor T Cell Therapy Directed Against B-Cell Maturation Antigen, in Patients with Relapsed/Refractory Multiple Myeloma

Wan-Hong Zhao, et al.

The Abstract concludes: This ongoing first-in-human study has provided initial proof-of-concept that bispecific LCAR‑B38M CAR T cells may be a highly effective therapy for R/R MM. LCAR-B38M CAR T cell therapy displayed a manageable safety profile consistent with its known mechanism of action and demonstrated deep and durable responses in pts with R/R MM. A phase 1/2 study of LCAR-B38M in R/R MM has been initiated in the US (NCT03548207).


956  Durable Remission Achieved from Bcma-Directed CAR-T Therapy Against Relapsed or Refractory Multiple Myeloma

Yarong Liu, et al.

The Abstract concludes:  Our result demonstrates the high potential of this single CAR-T infusion therapy for RRMM, including 3 sCRs and ongoing durable clinical responses, with only mild and manageable CRS to date. These initial data provide strong evidence to support the further development of this anti-myeloma cellular immunotherapy.


957  JCARH125, Anti-BCMA CAR T-cell Therapy for Relapsed/Refractory Multiple Myeloma: Initial Proof of Concept Results from a Phase 1/2 Multicenter Study (EVOLVE)

Sham Mailankody, et al.

The Abstract concludes: At initial lower dose levels, JCARH125 showed an acceptable safety profile with no DLTs reported thus far. Incidence of grade ≥ 3 NT was low and no grade ≥ 3 CRS has occurred with clear clinical activity. Although durability of response and response rate in a greater number of patients remain to be determined, early experience with JCARH125 support a favorable risk-benefit profile and rapid clinical development.


958  Improvement in Global Longitudinal Strain (GLS) Correlates with NT-Probnp Response in Patients with Cardiac Amyloidosis Treated on a Phase 1b Study of Anti-Amyloid Mab Cael-101

Divaya Bhutani, et al.

The Abstract concludes: Improvement in GLS correlates with improvement in NT-proBNP in in patients with cardiac AL Amyloidosis treated with CAEL-101. The short timeframe in which the improvement of the GLS occurred (12 weeks after entering the trial) suggests that this effect is Ab related and GLS along with NT-proBNP should be evaluated in larger studies as markers for early cardiac response in patients with AL Amyloidosis.


959  Clinical Responses and Pharmacokinetics of MCARH171, a Human-Derived Bcma Targeted CAR T Cell Therapy in Relapsed/Refractory Multiple Myeloma: Final Results of a Phase I Clinical Trial

Sham Mailankody, et al.

The Abstract concludes: MCARH171 has an acceptable safety profile with no DLTs reported. A dose-response relationship with toxicity was not clearly observed, as noted by distribution of tocilizumab use across dose cohorts. However, a dose-response relationship was observed with promising clinical efficacy at dose levels of ≥450 X106 CAR T cells. Controlling for dose level, peak expansion correlated with durability of response. These results further support the development of CAR T cells for heavily pre-treated patients with relapsed and refractory MM.


960  Low Dose of Human scFv-Derived BCMA-Targeted CAR-T Cells Achieved Fast Response and High Complete Remission in Patients with Relapsed/Refractory Multiple Myeloma

Songfu Jiang, et al.

The Abstract concludes: Data from this early-stage clinical study showed the unparalleled safety and efficacy of CT053 CAR-T cells. Major AEs were transient, manageable, and reversible. 100% ORR in 13/13 evaluable patients were reported post single-dose infusion of 0.5~1.8 x 108 cells. 5/12 patients who were dosed at ≥1.5 x 108 CAR-T cells rapidly achieved durable CR at median of 8 weeks, suggesting CT053 could be developed as competitive therapeutics to treat patients with RRMM.
