A Study to Evaluate the Safety and Tolerability of CAEL-101 in Patients With AL Amyloidosis

The purpose of the Part A of the study is to determine if the studydrug CAEL-101 is well-tolerated when given at different amounts topeople with AL amyloidosis who are also receiving chemotherapy(chemical agents to treat AL amyloidosis).The purpose of study Part B is to determine if CAEL-101 is well toleratedwhen given to people with AL amyloidosis who are also receiving a chemotherapy treatment that includes daratumumab.

Stanford is currently accepting patients for this trial.

   chemotactic factor 2-related (ALECT2) amyloidosis

   2. Meets the International Myeloma Working Group (IMWG) definition of multiple myeloma.

   3. Supine systolic blood pressure < 90 mmHg or symptomatic orthostatic hypotension,
   defined as a decrease in systolic blood pressure upon standing of > 20 mmHg despite

      bpm] ventricular rate is not allowed [determined by an average of three beats in
      Lead II or representative beats if Lead II is not representative of the overall

13. Major surgery within 4 weeks of first dose or planned major surgery during the study.
   Patients with surgical procedures conducted under local anesthesia may participate.

14. POEMS syndrome (plasma cell dyscrasia with polyneuropathy, organomegaly,
   endocrinopathy, monoclonal protein [M-protein] and skin changes)
