The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness of induction therapy with lenalidomide and low dose dexamethasone followed by sequential low dose bortezomib followed by low dose Melphalan and Prednisone, then followed by low dose lenalidomide for multiple cycles in subjects with high risk Multiple Myeloma (MM). The primary objective is to evaluate the efficacy as measured by the progression free survival (PFS) at 2 years of low dose sequential therapy following four cycles of induction therapy with lenalidomide/low-dose dexamethasone in subjects with symptomatic high risk multiple myeloma, who have received no prior treatment. A total of 35 subjects were estimated to be accrued to this Phase II trial over a period of subjects who are still progression-free at 2 years. Two years will be as measured from date of registration to the trial. Progression will include disease progression (DP) as well as death due to any cause. Data will be analyzed and reported by the PI after 1 and 2 years of initiation of the study. All subsequent data collected may be analyzed and reported in a follow-up clinical report. The PI and independent reviewers will meet to review the efficacy and safety data and determine a risk/benefit analysis in this subject population.

||Lenalidomide and Low Dose Dexamethasone Induction Therapy Followed by Low Dose Melphalan, Prednisone, Lenalidomide and Bortezomib Sequential Maintenance Therapy for Newly Diagnosed High-risk Multiple Myeloma
Primary Outcome Measures:
- Progression Free Survival [ Time Frame: 2 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
Progression free survival (PFS) is defined for all subjects as the time from the date of initiation of treatment to the date of first documentation of relapse, progression, or death due to any cause. Full restaging was performed at 6, 12, 18, 24, 36, 48, 60, 72 months). PFS survival will be estimated and plotted with the Kaplan-Meier method. The median will be calculated with 95% confidence intervals.
Secondary Outcome Measures:
- Time to Response [ Time Frame: 6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
Time to response will be measured in the population of subjects with a confirmed response as the time from the date of initiation of treatment to the date of the first documentation of a confirmed response. Full restaging was performed at 6, 12, 18, 24, 36, 48, 60, 72 months). Time to response will be estimated and plotted with the Kaplan-Meier method. The median will be calculated with 95% confidence intervals.
- Overall Survival [ Time Frame: 6 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
Overall survival is defined as the time from the date of initiation of treatment to the date of death due to any cause. Overall response rate will be estimated with its 80% confidence interval, and the numbers of subjects achieving a sustained complete response (sCR), complete response (CR), very good partial response (VGPR), partial response (PR), or stable disease (SD) will be tabulated. Overall survival will be estimated and plotted with the Kaplan-Meier method. The median will be calculated with 95% confidence intervals.
- Time to Progression [ Time Frame: 6 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
Time to progression (TTP) is defined for all patients as the time from initiation of treatment to disease progression with deaths owing to causes other than progression not counted as events, but censored (Durie et al., 2006).
- Duration of Response [ Time Frame: 6 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
The duration of response, defined only among the responders, is measured from start of achieving Partial Response (PR) [first observation of PR before confirmation] to the time of disease progression, with deaths owing to causes other than progression not counted as events, but censored (Durie et al., 2006). Duration of response will be estimated and plotted with the Kaplan-Meier method. The median will be calculated with 95% confidence intervals.

Experimental: High-risk Multiple Myeloma
Lenalidomide Induction (with Low Dose Dexamethasone) Therapy Followed by Low Dose Melphalan, Prednisone, Lenalidomide and Bortezomib Sequential Maintenance Therapy
Drug: Lenalidomide Induction
Induction: Lenalidomide 25 mg daily on Days 1-21 followed by 7 day rest and Dexamethasone 40 mg by mouth (po) daily on Days 1, 8, 15 and 22 every 28 days for 4 cycles.
Other Name: Lenalidomide
Drug: Sequential Maintenance Therapy
Subjects who achieve >partial response (PR) following induction therapy will receive repeating triplet cycles of alternating low dose therapy until progression, poor tolerance or toxicity. Subjects who complete 24 months of maintenance will be removed from study unless they achieved > stable disease (SD) from maintenance (per discussion with physician):
- 325 mg aspirin for deep vein thrombosis (DVT) prophylaxis
- Cycle 1, 4, 7, etc. - bortezomib 1.3 mg/m2 on day 1 and 8 of a 28-day cycle
- Cycle 2, 5, 8 etc. - Melphalan 6 mg/m2 by mouth (po) daily on Days 1-7
- Prednisone 60 mg /m2 po daily on Days 1-7 of a 28-day cycle
- Cycle 3, 6, 9, etc. Lenalidomide 10 mg po daily on Days 1-21 of a 28 day cycle.
- Lenalidomide (Revlimid)
- Bortezomib (Velcade)
