|Actual Study Completion Date :||April 2009|
Experimental: VDT and Melphalan
To find out if three drugs, bortezomib, thalidomide, and dexamethasone in addition to high doses of melphalan (M-VTD) and autologous transplant can be given safely and effectively to subjects who have failed previous regimens with transplant(s).
Drug: Melphalan, Velcade, Thalidomide, Dexamethasone
To assess, in patients with one or two prior auto transplants, the efficacy of a high-dose combination chemotherapy with MEL 300 (in 3 fractions of 100 mg/m2 on days -7, -4, -1) plus VTD (Velcade = bortezomib 1.3 mg/m2 on days -7, -4, -1; Thalidomide 200 mg/d on days -1 through -7; Dexamethasone 40 mg on days -7, -6, -4, -3, -1, 0) followed by autologous peripheral blood stem cell (PBSC) infusion of a minimum dose of 3 million CD34 cells/kg.
- VTD regimen with melphalan [ Time Frame: 12 months ]To find out if using the VTD regimen, along with higher doses melphalan, in subjects who have relapsed or progressed after previous transplant(s), can be given safely to subjects who have failed previous transplant(s).
