- Women must be postmenopausal (no menstrual period for a minimum of 1 year) or if they are of childbearing potential they must agree to use adequate birth control measures (e.g. abstinence, oral contraceptives, intrauterine device, barrier method with spermicide, implantable or injectable contraceptives or surgical sterilization during the study
- Men must agree to use adequate birth control measures (e.g. abstinence, oral contraceptives, intrauterine device, barrier method with spermicide, implantable or injectable contraceptives or surgical sterilization) during the study.

- Women who are pregnant or nursing
- Patients with peripheral neuropathy of >/= grade 2 by CTCAE v4.0.
- Have a history of alcohol or substance abuse within the preceding 6 months that, in the opinion of the investigator, may increase the risks associated with study participation or study agent administration, or may interfere with interpretation of results
- Currently have any known malignancy other than multiple myeloma, or have a history of malignancy within the previous 5 years, with the exception of basal cell or squamous cell carcinoma of the skin that has been fully excised with no evidence of recurrence
- Have current signs or symptoms of severe, progressive or uncontrolled renal, hepatic, gastrointestinal, endocrine, pulmonary, cardiac, neurologic, or cerebral disease
