Brief Summary:

The goal of this clinical research study is to find the highest tolerable dose of the drug panobinostat that can be given in combination with the drugs Velcade (bortezomib), Revlimid (lenalidomide), and Decadron (dexamethasone) to patients with MM. The safety of this drug combination will also be studied.

Panobinostat is designed to cause chemical changes in different groups of proteins that are attached to DNA (the genetic material of cells), which may slow the growth of cancer cells or cause the cancer cells to die.

Bortezomib is designed to block a protein that causes cells to grow. This may cause cancer cells to die.

Lenalidomide is designed to change the body's immune system. It may also interfere with the development of tiny blood vessels that help support tumor growth. This may slow the growth of cancer cells.

Dexamethasone is a corticosteroid that is similar to a natural hormone made by your body. Dexamethasone is often given to MM patients in combination with other chemotherapy to treat cancer.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Maximum Tolerated Dose (MTD) of Panobinostat with Bortezomib, Lenalidomide, and Dexamethasone [ Time Frame: First 21 days of study drug administration (continuous dosing) ]
    Maximum tolerated dose (MTD) defined as highest dose level in which 6 participants have less than 2 instances of dose limiting toxicities (DLT). Toxicities graded in severity according to guidelines outlined in NCI-CTCAE version 4.0. Hematologic and non-hematologic DLTs defined differently, and will be based on experiences that occur during the first cycle of study drug administration.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Overall Response Rate [ Time Frame: After 8, 28 day cycles ]
    Response assessed according to the recently published International Uniform Response Criteria for multiple myeloma established by the International Myeloma Working Group (IMWG; Durie et al 2006).
