Brief Summary:
This is a randomized Phase III study to evaluate the efficacy and safety of perifosine when added to the combination of bortezomib and dexamethasone in multiple myeloma patients who have relapsed on a prior bortezomib treatment regimen.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Multiple Myeloma Drug: Perifosine Drug: Perifosine Placebo Drug: Bortezomib Drug: Dexamethasone Phase 3

Detailed Description:
A pre-planned interim analysis is expected to take place in Q1 of 2013.

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Actual Enrollment : 135 participants
Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Double (Participant, Investigator)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Phase III Randomized Study to Assess the Efficacy and Safety of Perifosine Added to the Combination of Bortezomib and Dexamethasone in Multiple Myeloma Patients
Study Start Date : December 2009
Actual Primary Completion Date : March 2013
Actual Study Completion Date : March 2013


Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Perifosine added to combination

Perifosine added to the combination of Bortezomib and Dexamethasone. Perifosine is is supplied as a film-coated tablet containing 50 mg of active ingredient. Perifosine will be administered orally on an outpatient basis throughout the study. Daily administration will be one 50 mg tablet.

The first dose of perifosine should be taken on the same day that bortezomib and dexamethasone are administered (Cycle 1 Day 1).

Drug: Perifosine
Perifosine will be dosed as one 50 mg pill every day of each cycle.
Other Names:
  • D-21266
  • KRX-0401

Drug: Bortezomib
Bortezomib will be dosed at 1.3 mg/m2 on Days 1, 4, 8, and 11 every 21 days.

Drug: Dexamethasone
Dexamethasone will be administered orally at 20 mg on Days 1, 2, 4, 5, 8, 9, 11, and 12 of each 21-day cycle.

Placebo Comparator: Perifosine Placebo added to combination
Perifosine placebo added to the combination of Bortezomib and Dexamethasone. The placebo for perifosine is provided in 256 mg white to off-white, round, biconvex film-coated tablets to permit a blinded trial with perifosine 50 mg film coated tablets. Placebo will be administered orally on an outpatient basis throughout the study. Daily administration will be one perifosine placebo tablet. The first dose of placebo should be taken on the same day that bortezomib and dexamethasone are administered (Cycle 1 Day 1).
Drug: Perifosine Placebo
Perifosine placebo will be dosed as one 50 mg pill every day of each cycle.

Drug: Bortezomib
Bortezomib will be dosed at 1.3 mg/m2 on Days 1, 4, 8, and 11 every 21 days.

Drug: Dexamethasone
Dexamethasone will be administered orally at 20 mg on Days 1, 2, 4, 5, 8, 9, 11, and 12 of each 21-day cycle.




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Determine the PFS (progression free survival) in patients with multiple myeloma, treated with perifosine, bortezomib and dexamethasone compared to patients treated with placebo, bortezomib and dexamethasone [ Time Frame: 6 - 24 months ]
    Progression-free survival will be defined as the time between randomization and the date of progression that occurred during the Core Phase.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Overall survival (OS) [ Time Frame: Up to 24 months ]
    OS is defined as time from randomization to death from any cause during the Core Phase of the study.

  2. Overall response rate (ORR) [ Time Frame: 6 - 24 months ]
    The ORR for each treatment arm will be estimated as the proportion of responders, defined as a patient whose best overall response is PR or better during the treatment period, using criteria prospectively established.

  3. Adverse Events [ Time Frame: Up to 24 months ]
    Each AE and SAE term submitted will be mapped to a preferred term (PT) using the MedDRA dictionary. The investigator will classify the severity of AEs using the NCI CTCAE v3.0 and will assess the relationship of each event to each study treatment.

Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Patient was previously diagnosed with multiple myeloma based on standard diagnostic criteria.
  • Patients must have relapsed (progressed > 60 days) after their last dose of bortezomib-based therapy. In addition, patients may be relapsed or refractory to other non-bortezomib-based therapies.
  • Patient has received at least 1 but not more than 4 prior anti-myeloma regimens and has progressive disease after the most recent treatment regimen.
  • Patients must have adequate organ and marrow function.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Patients must not be refractory to any bortezomib-containing regimen.
  • History of allergic reactions or intolerance attributed to compounds of similar chemical or biologic composition to perifosine (miltefosine or edelfosine), bortezomib or dexamethasone or any of their components.
  • Prior treatment with perifosine or an investigational proteasome inhibitor.
  • Chemotherapy or other therapy experimental or proven that is or may be active against myeloma within two weeks (14 days) prior to Cycle 1 Day 1.
