Given the disappointing results with routine ASCT in t(4;14) patients, we propose this open label phase II study of bortezomib along with dexamethasone and pegylated liposomal doxorubicin (Doxil/Caelyx), referred to as the DBd regimen, for 4 cycles, followed by post-induction therapy with cyclophosphamide + bortezomib + prednisone (referred to as the CyBorP regimen) for 8 cycles. Since patients with t(4;14) remain at high risk for relapse, maintenance therapy with dexamethasone weekly will be given until disease progression.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To determine the time to progression (TTP) with this treatment regimen [ Time Frame: 24 months ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • To determine the objective response rate/duration following DBd induction and Cybor P post induction therapy [ Time Frame: 5 years ]
  • To determine PFS [ Time Frame: 5 years ]
  • To determine overall survival [ Time Frame: 5 years ]
  • To determine the safety profile of this regimen [ Time Frame: 5 years ]

Enrollment: 36
Study Start Date: November 2007
Study Completion Date: September 2016
Primary Completion Date: September 2015 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Single Arm
Please see intervention description for Bortezomib (Velcade)
Drug: Bortezomib
21 day-cycle Induction therapy:bortezomib 1.3 mg/m2 (I.V. Days 1, 4, 8, and 11), then 10-day rest period. DOXIL 30 mg/m2 given after bortezomib (I.V. infusion Day 4 of each cycle). Dexamethasone 40 mg PO on days 1-4,8-11 and 15-18 during the first cycle. Subsequent 3 cycles, dexamethasone 40 mg PO given on days 1-4 and 11-14. Patients who don't progress may undergo elective stem cell mobilization, stem cell collection and cryopreservation. Patients will then receive post-induction therapy 1.5 mg/m2 bortezomib days 1, 8, and 15 I.V. + cyclophosphamide 300 mg/m2 PO weekly + prednisone 100 mg PO on alternate days for 8 monthly 28 day cycles.Maintenance therapy with weekly 40 mg dexamethasone (days 1, 8, 15 and 22) every month until disease progression occurs.

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

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Patients previously diagnosed with MM based on criteria from the International Myeloma Working Group (IMWG)
  • Patients who have 'measurable' disease
  • Age 18 years at the time of signing Informed Consent
  • A patient may have received up to 4 months of other anti myeloma therapy, as part of the induction therapy, prior enrollment and still be considered eligible to participate in the study, as long as the patient's multiple myeloma has not progressed on the current regimen and the other eligibility criteria are met.
  • Patient is t(4;14) positive on screening assay.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Concomitant therapy medications that include corticosteroids (> 10 mg per day of prednisone or equivalent) or other therapy that is or may be active against myeloma prior to day 1 (with the exception of radiation therapy or induction therapy as described under the above inclusion criteria section
  • Peripheral neuropathy of Grade 2 or greater.
  • Patients with evidence of mucosal or internal bleeding and/or refractoriness to platelet transfusions (i.e., unable to maintain a platelet count 50 x 109 /L).
  • Patients with an absolute neutrophil count (ANC) < 1.0 x 109/L. Treatment to raise the ANC, such as granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF) or granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor (GM-CSF) is not allowed within 14 days of study entry.
  • Patients with hemoglobin < 80 g/L despite transfusion.
  • Pregnant or lactating women
