Evidence of relapsed or refractory disease as documented from the prior treatment history. (Refractory myeloma is defined as disease that is non-responsive while on salvage therapy, or progresses within 60 days of last therapy.

Presence of measurable disease as defined by at least one of the following;
Serum M-protein ≥ 1g/dL (measurable disease)
Urine M-protein ≥ 200mg/24 hours by protein electrophoresis (measurable disease)
Patients with non-secretory, or oligosecretory, multiple myeloma.
Patients with symptomatic amyloidosis, or with plasma cell leukemia.
