This trial tests a new drug to treat a type of cancer (Multiple Myeloma) in patients with relapsed or refractory disease.

Who is the study for?
This trial is for adults with relapsed or refractory multiple myeloma who have tried all other treatments without success. They must have certain levels of M protein in their urine or blood, and some may need to show specific genetic changes related to their cancer. People can't join if they've had a recent transplant, major surgery, other active cancers, inadequate organ function, or certain infections.Check my eligibility
What is being tested?
The study tests KTX-1001, an oral drug designed to inhibit MMSET activity in patients with multiple myeloma that has come back after treatment or hasn't responded to therapy. It's a Phase I trial focused on safety and how well the body tolerates the drug.See study design
What are the potential side effects?
While not specified here, side effects could include typical reactions seen with cancer therapies such as nausea, fatigue, liver issues (due to metabolism of the drug), potential blood disorders (as it affects bone marrow cells), and possibly unique effects from inhibiting MMSET.

Other Research
The most common treatments for Multiple Myeloma include proteasome inhibitors (e.g., bortezomib), which block the proteasome's ability to degrade proteins, leading to cancer cell death; immunomodulatory drugs (e.g., lenalidomide), which enhance the immune system's ability to attack myeloma cells; and monoclonal antibodies (e.g., daratumumab), which target specific proteins on the surface of myeloma cells to induce immune-mediated destruction. Novel agents like histone deacetylase inhibitors and MMSET inhibitors (which prevent H3K36 dimethylation) target epigenetic modifications to disrupt cancer cell growth and survival. These treatments are crucial as they offer multiple mechanisms to combat the disease, potentially overcoming resistance and improving patient outcomes.
