History: No changes posted
In the present study we are planning to study electrophysiological changes related to the dose and time of bortezomib administration in newly diagnosed patients with MM, during the first months of treatment and 6 months after ending. In addition a possible correlation between the incidence of BIPN and the subtype of myeloma and other risk factors will be investigated.

Further study details as provided by Wolfson Medical Center:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • A dose-related neurotoxic effect of bortezomib will be determined through regression analysis with the change in TNSr as the dependent variable Bortezomib doses will use as independent variables. [ Time Frame: 3 months ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • To accommodate the dose of bortezomib with the progression of Peripheral Neuropathy [ Time Frame: 4 months ]

Estimated Enrollment: 30
Study Start Date: April 2009
Estimated Study Completion Date: August 2009
Estimated Primary Completion Date: July 2009 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Intervention Details:
    Procedure: EMG
    Nerve conduction study will be consisted of sequential evaluation of the motor nerves: median, ulnar, peroneal and tibial; and the sensory nerves: median, ulnar, superficial peroneal and sural nerves using a standardized protocol
