Brief Summary:
One of the complications that can occur after a stem cell transplant is called graft versus host disease (GVHD). Another complication is that multiple myeloma may come back (relapse). In this study, a drug called lenalidomide will be started 1-2 months after a transplant, or possibly later depending on recovery of your side effects. Lenalidomide and sirolimus have been shown to work together against multiple myeloma. Therefore, lenalidomide will be combined with sirolimus with the hope that this will help prolong the amount of time the disease is in remission. Researchers hope these steps will help prolong the amount of time the multiple myeloma is in remission and will decrease the chance of GvHD.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Multiple Myeloma Drug: Sirolimus Drug: Tacrolimus Drug: Lenalidomide Phase 1 Phase 2

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Actual Enrollment : 14 participants
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Phase I/II Trial of Allogeneic Peripheral Blood Stem Cell Transplantation Followed by Maintenance Therapy With Lenalidomide and Sirolimus in Patients With High-Risk Multiple Myeloma
Actual Study Start Date : February 7, 2011
Primary Completion Date : September 23, 2014
Study Completion Date : July 28, 2017

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Open Label, Single Arm
Use sirolimus and tacrolimus as GvHD prophylaxis with sirolimus and lenalidomide as post-transplant maintenance
Drug: Sirolimus
Start on Day -3 and continue for 1 year
Drug: Tacrolimus
Start on Day -3 and begin tapering on Day +100 until Day +180.
Drug: Lenalidomide
Start between Day +30 and +120 and continue for 1 year.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number of Participants with Dose Limiting Toxicities as a Measure of Safety of the combination of sirolimus, tacrolimus and lenalidomide [ Time Frame: 1 year post transplantation ]
    Determine the safety of reduced-intensity allogeneic stem cell transplantation using sirolimus and tacrolimus as GvHD prophylaxis with sirolimus and lenalidomide as post-transplant maintenance in an initial Phase I component of the study

  2. Percent of patients alive and free of progression at 12 months. [ Time Frame: baseline through 1 year post-transplant ]
    Determine if reduced-intensity allogeneic stem cell transplantation using sirolimus and tacrolimus as GvHD prophylaxis with sirolimus and lenalidomide as post-transplant maintenance can result in 60% of patients with MM alive and free of progression at 12 months, with less than 40% considered unacceptable. This will be completed through the Phase II component of the study.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number of subjects with acute and chronic Graft versus Host Disease (GvHD) [ Time Frame: Day 0 through 1 year post transplantation ]

    Acute GvHD will be based on the modified Keystone Grading Scale for skin, liver and gastrointestinal symptoms (stage 0-4 for each organ).

    Chronic GvHD will be based on Filipovich et al. consensus document (BB&MT 2005) and Akpek et al. chronic GvHD grading system (Blood 2003).

  2. Number of treatment-related deaths at 100 days and 1 year [ Time Frame: Day +100 and 1 year post transplant ]
  3. Percentage of donor chimerism as assessed at days +30, +90, +180 and at 12 months post transplant [ Time Frame: +30, +90, +180 and 12 months post transplant ]
  4. Number of toxicities, frequency and type of infections occurring within the first year [ Time Frame: Day 0 through 1 year post transplantation ]
    Toxicities will be graded according to the National Cancer Institute Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (CTCAE) version 4.0.

  5. Time to engraftment of neutrophils and platelets [ Time Frame: baseline through engraftment ]
    Engraftment is defined as an absolute neutrophil count (ANC) >/=0.5 x 10^9/L for three consecutive days.

  6. Time from day 0 to disease progression or death (regardless of cause of death), whichever comes first. [ Time Frame: Day 0 until disease progression ]
  7. Number of patients with disease progression [ Time Frame: Day 0 until disease progression ]
  8. Time from day 0 to death from any cause [ Time Frame: Day 0 until death ]
  9. Number of complete responses (CR), stringent complete responses (sCR), near complete responses (nCR), very good partial responses (VGPR), partial responses (PR) and minimal responses (MR). [ Time Frame: Day 0 until disease progression ]
    Responses will be based on to International Myeloma Working Group criteria (Durie et al 2006)
