  Purpose

PRIMARY STUDY OBJECTIVES

  • To evaluate the efficacy of the combination of clarithromycin (Biaxin®), lenalidomide (Revlimid™), and dexamethasone (Decadron®) as an induction therapy for patients with newly diagnosed multiple myeloma (MM).
  • To evaluate the safety of the combination of clarithromycin, lenalidomide, and dexamethasone as an induction therapy for patients with newly diagnosed MM.

SECONDARY STUDY OBJECTIVES

  • To examine the role of clarithromycin on the pharmacokinetic properties of dexamethasone and lenalidomide.
  • To examine the angiogenesis profile in untreated patients and in patients receiving induction therapy.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Response rate, time to maximum response, toxicities [ Time Frame: 3 years ]

Estimated Enrollment: 50
Actual Study Start Date: December 2004
Estimated Study Completion Date: August 2022
Primary Completion Date: April 2007 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Intervention Details:
    Drug: Clarithromycin, Lenalidomide, Dexamethasone

    Dexamethasone (Decadron®) will be given orally at a dose of 40 mg on days 1, 2, 3, 8, 15 and 22 during the first cycle and once a week on days 1, 8, 15, and 22 for each subsequent cycle.

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older   (Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Subject must voluntarily sign and understand written informed consent.
  • Histologically confirmed Durie-Salomon stage II or III MM (see Appendix II). Stage I MM patients will be eligible if they display poor prognostic factors (ß2M > or = 5.5 mg/L, plasma cell proliferation index > or = 5%, albumin of less then 3.0, and unfavorable cytogenetics).
  • Measurable disease as defined by > 1.0 g/dL serum monoclonal protein, >0.1 g/dL serum free light chains, > 0.2 g/24 hrs urinary M-protein excretion, and/or measurable plasmacytoma(s).
  • Age > or = 18 years at the time of signing the informed consent form.
  • Karnofsky performance status > or = 70% (>60% if due to bony involvement of myeloma (see Appendix V).
  • No prior treatment or less than one full course of first-line therapy. Patients may be receiving adjuvant antiresorptive therapy (i.e., pamidronate or zoledronic acid) as routine care.
  • If the patient is a woman of childbearing age, she must have a negative serum or urine pregnancy test within 7 days of starting study.
  • Due to the unknown risk of teratogenic side effects, subjects (women and men) must agree to use effective contraception throughout the duration of the study and for at least 1 month after discontinuation of study drugs.
  • Life expectancy > 3 months
  • Absolute neutrophil count (ANC)> or = 1000 cells/mm3 (1.0 x 109/L)
  • Platelets count > or = 75,000/mm3 (75 x 109/L)
  • Serum SGOT/AST < 3.0 x upper limits of normal (ULN)
  • Serum SGPT/ALT < 3.0 x upper limits of normal (ULN)
  • Serum creatinine < 2.5 mg/dL (221 µmol/L)
  • Serum total bilirubin < 2.0 mg/dL (34 µmol/L)

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Patients with non-secretory MM (no measurable monoclonal protein, free light chains, and/or M-spike in blood or urine).
  • Prior history of other malignancies (except for basal cell or squamous cell carcinoma of the skin or carcinoma in situ of the cervix or breast) unless disease free for ³ 5 years.
  • NYHA Class III or IV heart disease. History of active angina, congestive heart disease, or myocardial infarction within 6 months.
  • Pregnant or lactating women are ineligible.
  • Known HIV positivity
  • Active viral or bacterial infections or any coexisting medical problem that would significantly increase the risks of this treatment program.
  • Known hypersensitivity to dexamethasone, clarithromycin, lenalidomide, or thalidomide.
  • Prior therapy for the treatment of MM
  • History of thromboembolic event or other condition currently requiring anticoagulation with warfarin (Coumadin). Patients whose therapy is changed to heparin are eligible.
