Primary Outcome Measures:
  • PHASE I: Maximum tolerated dose (MTD) of vorinostat in patients with advanced multiple myeloma.
  • PHASE II: Safety and overall response rate to SAHA in patients with advanced multiple myeloma.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • 1) Anti-tumor activity in patients with advanced multiple myeloma; 2) Biological effects of SAHA in peripheral mononuclear cells and bone marrow plasma cells; 3) Correlation of biological effects of SAHA with serum drug concentration.
