  Purpose

This Phase 3 study is a multicenter, open-label, randomized trial in patients with multiple myeloma whose disease has relapsed after at least 1 but not more than 3 prior therapeutic regimens. Patients must not have primary refractory disease (i.e., stable disease or progressive disease [PD] as best response to all prior therapies). Patients are allowed to have received prior carfilzomib or Velcade as long as they had at least a PR to prior therapy with carfilzomib or Velcade and at least a 6 month treatment-free interval since receiving carfilzomib or Velcade. Patients may receive maintenance therapy with drugs that are not in the proteasome inhibitor class during this 6 month treatment-free interval.

Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Carfilzomib plus Dexamethasone (Cd)
Carfilzomib is administered over 30 minutes (± 5 minutes) as an infusion. For Cycle 1 only, carfilzomib is administered at 20 mg/m2 IV on Days 1 and 2, followed by escalation to 56 mg/m2 on Days 8, 9, 15, and 16. Patients who tolerate 56 mg/m2 in Cycle 1 are kept at this dose on Days 1, 2, 8, 9, 15, and 16 on a 28 day cycle. Dose and schedule modifications for intolerable side effects to carfilzomib are detailed in the protocol. Additionally, dexamethasone is administered on Days 1, 2, 8, 9, 15, 16, 22, and 23 of a 28 day cycle. On days when carfilzomib is administered, dexamethasone is to be given 30 minutes to 4 hours prior to carfilzomib.

  • Carfilzomib
Active Comparator: Bortezomib (Velcade®) and Dexamethasone (Vd)
Velcade 1.3 mg/m2 administered IV or subcutaneously (SC) (route of administration of Velcade in accordance with regulatory approval) administered on Days 1, 4, 8, and 11 of a 21-day cycle plus dexamethasone 20 mg administered on Days 1, 2, 4, 5, 8, 9, 11, and 12 of a 21-day cycle. Patients should be encouraged to continue to receive Velcade by the same route of administration (SC or IV) throughout treatment (i.e., a patient should not begin receiving IV and then switch to SC, or vice versa).
Drug: Velcade plus dexamethasone
Velcade 1.3 mg/m2 is administered as a 3-5 second bolus IV injection or SC injection (in accordance with regulatory approval) on Days 1, 4, 8, and 11 of each 21-day cycle until PD or intolerable side effects. Dose and schedule modifications for intolerable side effects to Velcade are detailed in the protocol. Additionally, dexamethasone 20 mg is given on Days 1, 2, 4, 5, 8, 9, 11, and 12 of each 21 day cycle. On days when Velcade is administered, the dexamethasone is to be given 30 minutes to 4 hours prior to Velcade.

Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  1. Multiple myeloma with relapsing or progressing disease at study entry.
  2. Patients must have evaluable multiple myeloma with, at least one of the following (assessed within 21 days prior to randomization):

    • Serum M-protein ≥ 0.5 g/dL, or
    • Urine M-protein ≥ 200 mg/24 hour, or
    • In patients without detectable serum or urine M-protein, serum free light chain (SFLC) > 100 mg/L (involved light chain) and an abnormal serum kappa/lamda ratio, or
    • For IgA patients whose disease can only be reliably measured by serum quantitative immunoglobulin (qIgA) ≥ 750 mg/dL (0.75 g/dL).
  3. Patients must have documented at least PR to at least 1 line of prior therapy. PR documentation can be based on Investigator assessment.
  4. Received 1, but no more than 3 prior treatment regimens or lines of therapy for multiple myeloma. (Induction therapy followed by stem cell transplant and consolidation/maintenance therapy will be considered as one line of therapy).
  5. Prior therapy with Velcade is allowed as long as the patient had at least a PR to prior Velcade therapy, was not removed from Velcade therapy due to toxicity, and will have at least a 6 month Velcade treatment-free interval from last dose received until first study treatment. (Patients may receive maintenance therapy with drugs that are not in the proteasome inhibitor class during this 6 month Velcade treatment-free interval).
  6. Prior therapy with carfilzomib is allowed as long as the patient had at least a PR to prior carfilzomib therapy, was not removed from carfilzomib therapy due to toxicity, and had at least a 6-month carfilzomib treatment-free interval from last dose received until first study treatment. (Patients may receive maintenance therapy with drugs that are not in the proteasome inhibitor class during this 6 month carfilzomib treatment-free interval). The exception to this is patients randomized or previously randomized in any other Onyx-Sponsored Phase 3 trial.
  7. Males and females ≥ 18 years of age.
  8. Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) Performance Status of 0 to 2.

  10. LVEF ≥ 40%.
  11. Absolute neutrophil count (ANC) ≥ 1000/mm3 within 21 days prior to randomization. Screening ANC should be independent of growth factor support for ≥ 1 week.
