This research study is a Phase II clinical trial. Phase II clinical trials test the effectiveness of an investigational combination of drugs. The purpose is to learn whether the combination of drugs works in treating a specific cancer. "Investigational" means that the combination of drugs is still being studied. It also means that research doctors are trying to find out more about it. Examples of what they want to learn about are the safest dose to use, the side effects it may cause, and if the combination of drugs works for treating different types of cancer.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Objective Response Rate [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
    To evaluate the objective response rate (PR [Partial Response] + VGPR [Very Good Partial Response] + CR [Complete Response]) of modified RVD (weekly subcutaneous bortezomib [Velcade], lenalidomide [Revlimid], and dexamethasone) in previously untreated multiple myeloma patients who are ineligible for high dose therapy with autologous stem cell transplant.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Evaluation of Safety Profile [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
    To evaluate the safety profile of modified RVD in previously untreated MM patients who are transplant-ineligible

  • Progression Free Survival [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
    To evaluate the progression-free survival of modified RVD

  • Overall Survival [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
    To evaluate the overall survival of modified RVD

  • Time to Response and Response Duration [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
    Evaluate the time to response and response duration of modified RVD

  • Response Rate with Respect to Cytogenetic Characteristics [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
    To evaluate the response rate with respect to cytogenetic characteristics of the bone marrow plasma cells.

  • Evaluate Pharmacokinetic Profile [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
    To evaluate the pharmacokinetic profile of intravenous and subcutaneous bortezomib administration in combination with lenalidomide and dexamethasone.

  • Evaluate Pharmacogenomic Markers [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
    To evaluate pharmacogenomic markers among patients with treatment related neuropathy.
