Brief Summary:
A PET-CT will be performed on patients with myeloma after a standard first-line treatment. The PET-positive patients will receive 4 cycles of Carfilzomb-Revlimid-Dexamethason (KRd), before a new PET-CT will be performed.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Myeloma Drug: Carfilzomib Drug: Lenalidomide Device: PET-CT Drug: Dexamethasone Phase 2

Detailed Description:
Patients will be evaluated for inclusion after finishing first-line therapy, or after a sufficient amount of treatment in first-line, and a sufficient respons (VGPR). Eligible performed regimens are defined in the protocol. All patients will perform a PET-CT, and PET-negative patients will be excluded from protocol treatment. The PET-positive patients will do a minimal residual disease (MRD-)evaluation in the bone marrow before entering treatment. After 4 28day cycles of Carfilzomib-Revlimid-Dexamethason, a new MRD and a new PET-CT will be performed, as measures of outcome. Patients will continue treatment as written in the protocol.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. PET negativity after induction [ Time Frame: 1 month after induction ]
    How many of PET positive patients will become PET negative after treatment

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. PET correlation with MRD Euroflow [ Time Frame: 1 month after induction ]
    Before intervention all patients are PET-CT positive. The investigators will measure minimal residual disease (MRD) with immuno-flow cytometry, at the same timepoint, and describe how many of the PET-CT patients, are MRD-negative and how many are MRD-positive. After the intervention the investigators will again do PET-CT and MRD by flow cytometry. The investigators will then describe how many PET-positive patients are MRD-positive and how many are MRD-negative. As well, the investigators will describe the same in the PET-CT negative patients.

    • MPV at least 6 cycles, or no further reduction in monoclonal component the last 2 cycles, or
    • Rd at least 9 cycles or no further reduction in monoclonal component the last 2 cycles.
  3. Carfilzomib naïve.
  4. Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status 0-2.
  5. Absolute neutrophil count (ANC) ≥ 0,5 x 109/L) and platelet count >35 x 109/L.
  6. At least very good partial remission (VGPR) from first line treatment

Exclusion Criteria:

  1. Change of first line treatment because of stabile or progressive disease.
  2. Major surgery within 28 days before enrollment.
  3. Radiotherapy within 14 days before enrollment, but if the involved field is small, 7 days will be considered a sufficient interval before onset of the treatment.
  4. Glucocorticoid therapy within the 14 days prior to inclusion that exceeds a cumulative dose of 160 mg dexamethasone or 1000 mg prednisone.
  5. Central nervous system involvement.
  6. Uncontrolled heart disease, including congestive heart failure (NYHA III-IV), uncontrolled angina pectoris, uncontrolled conduction abnormalities, acute diffuse infiltrative pulmonary disease, pericardial disease or myocardial infarction within 6 months prior to enrollment
  7. Uncontrolled hypertension or uncontrolled diabetes despite medication
  8. Active hepatitis B or C infection or known human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) positivity.
  9. Another active malignancy. Patients with non-melanoma skin cancer or carcinoma in situ of any type are not excluded if they have undergone complete resection.
  10. Primary plasma cell leukemia, systemic AL amyloidosis, Waldenströms macroglobulinemia, POEMS syndrome
