Background
SMM is an asymptomatic and heterogeneous plasma cell disorder. Both Spanish Myeloma and ECOG Groups have demonstrated that pts at high risk of progression to active MM benefit from early treatment with R-based regimens.

Aims
Our next step was to design this phase 2, single arm trial, focusing on the same population, but with the potential goal of cure, defined by sustained minimal residual disease negativity (MRD-ve) at 5 years after HDT-ASCT. 

Methods
Ninety SMM pts at high-risk of progression (>50% at 2 yrs), younger than 70 years and transplant candidates were included. The high risk was defined by the presence of both ≥PC 10% and MC ≥3g/dL (Mayo) or ifonly one criterion was present, pts must >95%of aberrant PCs within the total PCsBM compartment by immunophenotyping plus immunoparesis (Spanish). Induction therapy consisted on six 4-weeks cycles of KRd in which K was given at dose of 36 mg/m2twice per week plus R at dose of 25 mg on days 1-21 and dexamethasone at dose of 40 mg weekly. Melphalan at dose of 200 mg/m2followed by ASCT was given as intensification therapy followed by two KRd consolidation cycles and maintenance with R at dose of 10 mg plus dexamethasone at dose of 20 mg weekly for up to 2 yrs. The primary end-point was to evaluate the MRD-ve rate by next generation flow (NGF) after induction and ASCT and our aim was to increase the MRD –ve rate from 34% (reported in NDMM pts after VTD and ASCT) to at least 50%.

Results

Between June 2015 and June 2017, 90 high-risk SMM pts were recruited. Twenty-eight pts (32%) shared at least one of the new biomarkers predicting imminent risk of progression to MM. On February 4th, 2019, 71 pts were already receiving maintenance treatment; 7 pts had finalized the treatment and there were 11 early discontinuations (4 biochemical relapses during maintenance, 2 Informed Consent refusal, 3 adverse events and two deaths). After a median follow-up of 32 months (8-128), 93% of pts remain alive and free of progression and 98% of them alive. In the intent-to-treat pts’ population, after induction, the ≥CR rate was 41% and increased to 59% after HDT-ASCT and to 70% after consolidation. In the same analysis, MRD-ve rate was observed in 30% of pts after induction, 52% after HDT-ASCT and 57% after consolidation. If we focus on the 83 pts who completed induction, HDT-ASCT and consolidation, the ≥CR/undetectable MRD rates were 42%/31%, 64%/56% and 76%/63% after each step, respectively. Concerning toxicity, during induction, G3-4 neutropenia and thrombocytopenia were reported in 5 (6%) and 10 pts (11%), respectively. G3-4 infections were reported in 16 pts (18%), followed by skin rash in 8 pts (9%). One patient reported G1 atrial fibrillation and another cardiac failure secondary to respiratory infection. Three pts reported hypertension (G2 in two and G3 in one). In all but two of the pts, PBSC collection was successful with a median of 4.10 x 106/Kg CD34 cells collected. All pts engrafted but one patient developed late graft failure. During consolidation, 2 pts developed G3-4 neutropenia, 3 pts G3-4 infections and 1 pt skin rash. Maintenance treatment is ongoing and one patient had to discontinue due to a second primary malignancy (lung cancer) and other due to sustained thrombocytopenia.

Conclusion

The primary end point of the trial was met, and 56% of the pts who completed induction and HDT-ASCT achieved MRD-ve. This “curative strategy for high risk SMM” continues being encouraging and 93% of pts remain alive and progression-free at 30 months and 98% of pts alive.
