This is a Phase I, FIH, open-label, dose escalation study evaluating Safety and Efficacy of UCART targeting CS1 in patients with Relapsed or Refractory Multiple Myeloma (MM). The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and clinical activity of UCARTCS1A and to determine the Maximum Tolerated Dose (MTD).

Official Title

Phase I, Open-label Dose-escalation Study to Evaluate the Safety, Expansion, Persistence and Clinical Activity of UCARTCS1A (Allogenic Engineered T-cells Expressing Anti-CS1 Chimeric Antigen Receptor) Administered in Patients With Relapsed/Refractory Multiple Myeloma


Relapsed/Refractory Multiple Myeloma, Multiple Myeloma, Chimeric Antigen Receptor T-Cell (CART-T) therapy, Transcription Activator-Like Effector Nuclease (TALEN), Allogeneic, Plasma Cell Neoplasms, UCARTCS1A
