Recruitment status was: Active, not recruiting
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop cancer cells from dividing so they stop growing or die.
PURPOSE: Phase II trial to study the effectiveness of arsenic trioxide in treating patients who have relapsed or refractory stage II or stage III multiple myeloma.
|Multiple Myeloma and Plasma Cell Neoplasm||Drug: arsenic trioxide||Phase 2|
|Study Design:||Primary Purpose: Treatment|
|Official Title:||Phase II Study of Arsenic Trioxide in Patients With Multiple Myeloma|
|Study Start Date:||January 2001|
OBJECTIVES: I. Determine the response rate of patients with relapsed or refractory stage II or III multiple myeloma treated with arsenic trioxide. II. Determine the overall and relapse-free survival rates of patients treated with this drug. III. Determine the safety profile of this drug in these patients.
OUTLINE: Patients receive arsenic trioxide IV on days 1-5 and 8-12. Treatment repeats every 4 weeks for up to 6 courses. Patients are followed at 4 weeks after the last treatment dose.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 55 patients will be accrued for this study.
