TAK-079 is a monoclonal antibody (a type of protein made in the laboratory that can bind to substances in the body, including cancer cells) that works in several ways. One way this monoclonal antibody works is by attaching itself to multiple myeloma cells in your body and directly killing them and/or allowing your immune system to destroy them. TAK-079 targets and attaches to a protein called CD38, which is present in high numbers on multiple myeloma cells. CD38 is also present in lower numbers on other certain cell types and may affect them.
The main purpose of this study is to obtain information on the best dose of the research drug, TAK 079, when administered in combination with the backbone treatment regimens.

If you are eligible to participate in this study, you will be assigned to receive either:
1) Arm A: TAK-079 (study medication), lenalidomide and dexamethasone (backbone regimen)
2) Arm B: TAK-079 (study medication), bortezomib, lenalidomide and dexamethasone (backbone regimen)
