This is a Phase II study to determine the efficacy and safety of PHE885, a BCMA-directed
CAR-T cell therapy, manufactured with a new process. The CAR-T cell therapy will be
investigated as a single agent in relapsed and refractory multiple myeloma


This clinical trial employs an open label, single arm, multi-center design with primary
analysis testing overall response rate ( ORR), including one interim analysis for futility
and one interim analysis for efficacy.

The trial population includes adult patients with relapsed and refractory multiple myeloma
(MM) after failure of 3 or more lines of therapy, including failing an immunomodulatory drug
(IMiD), a proteasome inhibitor (PI) and an anti-CD38 (cluster of differentiation 38)
monoclonal antibody (mAb) and who have measurable disease at enrollment per IMWG criteria .
In addition, patients must be refractory to the last line of therapy

The trial will enroll 90 efficacy evaluable adult patients with relapsed and refractory MM
(efficacy evaluable means participants infused with a PHE885 product at target dose 10e6 that
met all release specifications).

Patients will be followed for acute and intermediate safety and efficacy within this trial
for a minimum of 2 years before being transferred to the long-term follow-up trial. A
long-term post-study follow-up for lentiviral vector safety will be offered under a separate
destination protocol for 15 years post injection per health authority guidelines.

**Clinical trials are research studies that involve people. These studies test new ways to prevent, detect, diagnose, or treat diseases. People who take part in cancer clinical trials have an opportunity to contribute to scientists’ knowledge about cancer and to help in the development of improved cancer treatments.
