Venetoclax and Dexamethasone in translocation (11;14) positive relapsed and refractory multiple myeloma (VICTORIA)

Short summary

The aim of this study is to assess the safety and efficacy of Venetoclax in a reduced dosis of 400 mg daily in combination with dexamethasone in patients with relapsed or refractory multiple myeloma who have translocation t(11;14). This is an open label, phase II, multicenter study that will be conducted in Denmark.


Venetoclax-dexamethasone, although currently not an approved regimen in MM, seems to be a safe and effective treatment option in patients with relapsed and refractory MM, especially in patients who are positive for t(11;14). The aim of this phase II trial is to provide results about the safety and efficacy of this regimen specifically in the subgroup of patients with t(11:14). One of the objectives of this study is to assess the humoral immunodeficiency of subjects and to minimize the risk of pneumonia by anti-pneumococcal vaccination and infection prophylaxis.
