Iberdomide is a next-generation cereblon (CRBN)-modulating agent in the clinical development in multiple myeloma (MM). The analysis of biomarker samples from relapsed/refractory patients enrolled in CC-220-MM-001 ( NCT02773030), a phase 1/2 study, shows that iberdomide treatment induces significant target substrate degradation in tumors, including in immunomodulatory agent (IMiD)-refractory patients or those with low CRBN levels. Additionally, some patients with CRBN genetic dysregulation who responded to iberdomide have a similar median progression-free survival (PFS) (10.9 months) and duration of response (DOR) (9.5 months) to those without CRBN dysregulation (11.2 month PFS, 9.4 month DOR). Iberdomide treatment promotes a cyclical pattern of immune stimulation without causing exhaustion, inducing a functional shift in T cells toward an activated/effector memory phenotype, including in triple-class refractory patients and those receiving IMiDs as a last line of therapy. This analysis demonstrates that iberdomide's clinical mechanisms of action are driven by both its cell-autonomous effects overcoming CRBN dysregulation in MM cells, and potent immune stimulation that augments anti-tumor immunity.
