Brief Summary:

RATIONALE: Interferon alfa may interfere with the growth of cancer cells. Interleukin-6 may stimulate the white blood cells to kill cancer cells. Giving interferon alfa together with interleukin-6 may kill more cancer cells.

PURPOSE: This clinical trial is studying the side effects and how well giving interferon alfa together with interleukin-6 works in treating patients with recurrent multiple myeloma.


Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Multiple Myeloma and Plasma Cell Neoplasm Biological: recombinant interferon-α Biological: recombinant interleukin-6 Early Phase 1

Detailed Description:

OBJECTIVES:

  • Determine the response rate in patients with recurrent multiple myeloma treated with recombinant interferon alfa and recombinant interleukin-6.
  • Determine the safety and optimal dose of this regimen in these patients.
  • Determine the toxicity of this regimen in these patients.
  • Determine the impact of this regimen on clonogenic growth of myeloma cells in serial in vitro assays.

OUTLINE: This is a pilot study.

Patients receive recombinant interferon alfa subcutaneously (SC) once daily. Beginning 1 month later, patients also receive recombinant interleukin-6 SC once daily. Treatment continues for up to 6 months in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 27 patients will be accrued for this study.

Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Pilot Study of Differentiation Therapy in Multiple Myeloma Using Interleukin-6 and Interferon-a
Actual Study Start Date : October 2007
Actual Primary Completion Date : January 2010
Actual Study Completion Date : January 2010


Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Interleukin-6 and Interferon-α
Subjects will be started on recombinant interferon-α at a dose of 3 million units SQ daily, escalating the dose by 1 million units every week as tolerated to a maximum dose of 3 million units/m2/day. Following a minimum of one month of interferon therapy with two weeks on a stable dose, subjects will begin recombinant interleukin-6 therapy at a dose of 2.5 ug/kg/day.
Biological: recombinant interferon-α
Biological: recombinant interleukin-6



Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Response Rate as Assessed by Number of Participants With Partial or Complete Response by Bladé Criteria. [ Time Frame: Up to 5 months ]
    Number of participants with partial or complete response by Bladé criteria where partial response is defined as a >= 50% decrease in serum paraprotein or 90% decrease in urinary light chains (for participants without measurable serum paraprotein). Complete response is defined as negative serum and urine immunofixation and a bone marrow aspirate with < 5% plasma cells.

  2. Toxicity as Measured by Number of Participants Who Discontinued Treatment Due to Adverse Events [ Time Frame: Up to 5 months ]
    Number of participants who discontinued the protocol due to adverse events.

  3. Optimal Dose of Interleukin-6 [ Time Frame: Up to 5 months ]
    Maximum tolerated dose found using a standard 3+3 dose escalation model.

  4. Impact of Treatment on Growth of Myeloma Cells [ Time Frame: Day 0, Day 14, Months 1, 2, 4, and 6 of combined therapy, and end of study ]
    Percentage change in growth of in vitro myeloma cells from baseline to end of study.
