Exclusion Criteria:

Patients are excluded from participating in this study if 1 or more of the following criteria are met:

  • Nonsecretory disease or plasma cell leukemia (defined as >2000 circulating plasma cells/uL).
  • More than 4 prior courses if anticancer therapy (bisphosphonates are not considered anticancer therapy for this criterion)
  • Chemotherapy or radiotherapy within 4 weeks prior to enrollment
  • Unresolved adverse events or uncontrolled illness that would be likely to interfere with the objectives of the study.
  • Treatment with an investigational drug within 4 weeks of first day of study treatment
  • History of second cancer (except for adequately treated basal cell or squamous cell skin cancer, in situ cervical cancer, or other cancer for which the patient has been disease free more than 5 years).
  • Treatment with potent CYP3A4 inhibitors including cyclosporine, clotrimazole, fluconazole, itraconazole, ketoconazole, voriconazole, erythromycin, clarithromycin, and troleandomycin, human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), protease inhibitors, or nefazodone within 1 week (7 days) of the planned 1st day of study treatment.
  • Currently receiving warfarin.
  • Clinical diagnosis of active gastrointestinal ulceration of melena or hematemesis in the previous 4 weeks.
  • Hypersensitivity to CEP701 or any component of CEP701.
  • Intolerance of dexamethasone.
