|Official Title:||PS-341 (Bortezomib, Velcade®), Adriamycin and Dexamethasone (PAD) Combination Therapy Followed by Thalidomide With Dexamethasone (Thal/Dex) for Relapsed or Refractory Multiple Myeloma|
- Response rate of PAD induction Therapy
- Response rate of PAD followed by Thal/Dex maintenance
- Progression free survival and Overall survival of PAD/Thal-Dex.
- To evaluate toxicities of PAD/Thal-Dex

Although the overall survival was improved with the introduction of high dose therapy with autologous hematopoetic stem cell transplantation,it remains as a incurable disease. Most patients ultimately relapse. Recenlty, targeted therapy using novel agents, such as bortezomib and thalidomide, shows the possibility of improved in this situation. Among them, PAD (Velcade, Adriamycin,Dexamethasone) showed highest response rate. PAD does not show any cross resiatance with another effective combination, thalidomide plus dexamethasone.
We desined prospective multicenter phase 2 study using these combination sequentially.
