|Multiple Myeloma||Drug: Arsenic Trioxide, Ascorbic Acid and Bortezomib||Phase 1|
Despite the fact the high dose therapy and autologous transplant can prolong life in patients with multiple myeloma (MM), in most studies there appears to be a continuously declining event free survival following auto-transplant indicating that few patients will be cured with this approach. A high percentage of patients the relapse in the post transplant setting will not be candidate for additional chemotherapy. We therefore, are investigating novel strategies for controlling their disease in the post transplant setting. The key theoretical issue for this study is whether concomitant Trisenox would permit the use of less toxic doses of Velcade, resulting in a less toxic but equally effective regimen.
Phase I of this study uses dose escalation to estimate the maximum tolerated dose of Arsenic, Ascorbic Acid and Velcade. Phase II is a subsequent treatment phase using the maximum tolerated dose from Phase I. In the absence of treatment delays due to adverse events, treatment may continue for 6 cycles, plus two additional cycles if patient has achieved a good response.
