- Evaluate the efficacy of the combination of thalidomide (Thalomid®), clarithromycin (Biaxin®), lenalidomide (Revlimid®), and dexamethasone (Decadron®) as an induction therapy for patients with newly diagnosed multiple myeloma (MM).
- Evaluate the efficacy of the addition of thalidomide (Thalomid®) to BiRD combination therapy as a therapy to increase the complete response rate for patients with newly diagnosed multiple myeloma.
- Evaluate the safety of the combination of clarithromycin, lenalidomide, dexamethasone, and thalidomide as a therapy for patients with newly diagnosed MM

||December 2009 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
• Thalidomide (50mg daily for days 1-7, thereafter 100mg daily for days 8-28 of the first 28 day cycle. Thalidomide will then be given at 100mg/daily for days 1-28 for each subsequent cycle)
• Lenalidomide (25 mg daily days 1-21 of every 28 day cycle)
• Clarithromycin (500mg twice daily for each 28 day cycle)
• Dexamethasone (40 mg daily on day 1, 8, 15 and 22 of each 28 day cycle)
|Ages Eligible for Study:
||18 Years and older
|Genders Eligible for Study:
|Accepts Healthy Volunteers:
- 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 ≥ 5 years.
- Myocardial infarction within 6 months prior to enrollment , or NYHA(New York Hospital Association) Class III or IV heart failure, uncontrolled angina, severe uncontrolled ventricular arrhythmias, electrocardiographic evidence of acute ischemia or active conduction system abnormalities.
- Pregnant or lactating females are ineligible.
- Given the potential of the study drugs to trigger or worsen HIV viremia and the incidence of opportunistic infections inpatients infected with the HIV virus, HIV-1 or HIV-2 positive patients will be excluded. The interactions of HAART with study drugs have not been determined.
- Active hepatitis B or hepatitis C infection.
- Active viral or bacterial infections or any coexisting medical problem that would significantly increase the risks of this treatment program.
- Any coexisting medical problem or laboratory evaluation that, in the treating physician's or principal investigator's opinion, makes the patient unsuitable to participate in this clinical trial.
- Known hypersensitivity to dexamethasone, clarithromycin, lenalidomide, or thalidomide.
- History of thromboembolic event within the past 6 months prior to enrollment.
