|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Multiple Myeloma||Drug: Doxil Drug: Thalidomide Drug: Dexamethasone||Phase 2|
Multiple myeloma (MM) is an incurable hematological malignancy of plasma cell origin. Plasma cell clonality and dysfunctional immunoglobulin production characterize the disease. The consequences of abnormal plasma cell growth are manifested by a myriad of symptoms and signs that often have significant impact on the patient's quality of life. These include pancytopenia secondary to predominant distribution of tumor cells within the bone marrow along with many other effects.
This study is focused on the efficacy of Doxil® (pegylated liposomal doxorubicin) with low dose Dexamethasone and Thalidomide (Ddt) in previously untreated patients with multiple myeloma.

- Overall Response Rate [ Time Frame: At End of Cycle 1, 28 Days ]Response rate after completion of first cycle. Measured as the proportion of subjects who have a partial response (PR) or complete response (CR), represented as the overall response rate (ORR). SWOG/IBMTR (Southwest Oncology Group/International Blood and Marrow Transplant Research) criteria utilized to determine multiple myeloma response rates.
- Toxicity [ Time Frame: End of study, up to 12 months ]Count of Participants with adverse events.
