Study Title

A Phase 2, Multicohort Open-Label Study of JNJ-68284528, a Chimeric Antigen Receptor T cell (CAR-T) Therapy Directed Against BCMA in Subjects with Multiple Myeloma (CARTITUDE-2)


The purpose of this study is to evaluate the overall minimal residual disease (MRD) negative rate of participants who receive JNJ-68284528.


Primary: -To evaluate the overall minimal residual disease (MRD) negative rate of subjects who receive JNJ-68284528 Secondary: -To evaluate the efficacy of JNJ-68284528 -To further characterize MRD negativity -To characterize the safety of JNJ-68284528 -To characterize the pharmacokinetics an pharmacodynamics of JNJ-68284528 -To assess the immunogenicity of JNJ-68284528 Exploratory -To further characterize the efficacy of JNJ-68284528 -To explore changes in patient-reported outcomes (PRO) after treatment with JNJ-68284528 -To assess symptomatic adverse events from the patient perspective via patient reported outcomes of the Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (PRO-CTCAE) -To characterize the impact of JNJ-68284528 CAR-T process on medical resource utilization -To characterize potential early clinical, translational, and imaging markers for neurotoxicity (predictive markers)

Inclusion Criteria

  • Cohort A: Received a minimum of 1 to a maximum of 3 prior lines of therapy including a proteasome inhibitor (PI) and immunomodulatory therapy (IMiD), and lenalidomide refractory per International Myeloma Working Group (IMWG) guidelines
  • Cohort B: Received one line of prior therapy including a PI and an IMiD, and disease progression per IMWG criteria less than or equal to (> Cohort C: Previously treated with a PI, an IMiD, an anti-CD38 monoclonal antibody and B-cell maturation antigen (BCMA)-directed therapy
  • Cohort D: Newly diagnosed multiple myeloma per IMWG with a history of 4 to 8 total cycles of initial therapy, including induction, high-dose therapy, and ASCT with or without consolidation
  • Cohort E: Have newly diagnosed multiple myeloma without prior therapy (one cycle of prior therapy before enrollment is acceptable) and classified as high risk defined as either: 1) International Staging System (ISS) stage III criteria, Beta 2 microglobulin greater than or equal to (>=) 5.5 milligram per liter (mg/L) (via local or central laboratory assessment) or 2) high risk cytogenetic features del(17/17p), t (14;16), t(14;20), 1q amplification (at least 4 copies)
  • Cohorts A, B, C, E:
  • Serum monoclonal paraprotein (M-protein) level greater than or equal to (>=) 1.0 gram per deciliter (g/dL) or urine M-protein level >=200 milligram (mg)/24 hours
  • Light chain multiple myeloma in whom only measurable disease is by serum free light chain (FLC) levels in the serum: Serum immunoglobulin FLC >=10 mg/dL and abnormal serum immunoglobulin kappa lambda FLC ratio
  • Cohort A: For participants with neither serum nor urine measurable disease, baseline positron emission tomography/ computed tomography (PET/CT) or whole -body magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) may be used to satisfy the measurable disease criteria. A minimum of one lesion with a bi-dimensional measurement of at least 1 centimeter (cm)*1 cm is required
  • Cohorts B, C: For participants with neither serum nor urine measurable disease, baseline positron emission tomography/ computed tomography (PET/CT) or whole body magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) may be used to satisfy the measurable disease criteria
  • Cohorts A, B, C, D, E, F: Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status grade of 0 or 1
  • Cohort F: Participant must have a documented efficacy response of very good partial response (VGPR) or better, without progressive disease prior to enrollment, as assessed per IMWG 2016 criteria

  • Exclusion Criteria

  • Cohorts A, B, D, F: Any therapy that is targeted to BCMA
  • Cohorts A, B, C, D, F: Prior treatment with chimeric antigen receptor T (CAR-T) therapy directed at any target
  • Cohorts A, B, C, D, F:
  • Ongoing toxicity from previous anticancer therapy must resolve to baseline levels or to Grade 1 or less except for alopecia or peripheral neuropathy
  • Received a cumulative dose of corticosteroids equivalent to >=70 mg of prednisone within the 7 days (Cohort A, B, C, F) or 14 days (Cohort D) prior to apheresis
  • Serious underlying medical condition, such as (a) evidence of active viral or bacterial infection requiring systemic antimicrobial therapy, or uncontrolled systemic fungal infection; (b) active autoimmune disease or a history of autoimmune disease within 3 years; (c) overt clinical evidence of dementia or altered mental status; (d) any history of Parkinson's disease or other neurodegenerative disorder
  • Cohorts A, B, C, D, E, F: Known active, or prior history of central nervous system (CNS) involvement or exhibits clinical signs of meningeal involvement of multiple myeloma
