ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier:
NCT01241708
First received: November 15, 2010
Last updated: August 8, 2017
Last verified: August 2017
  Purpose
High dose chemotherapy with stem cell transplantation is commonplace in the treatment of multiple myeloma. This treatment uses a chemotherapy drug called Melphalan that has been used in several thousand bone marrow transplant recipients worldwide for the same or similar disorders.

Condition Intervention Phase
Multiple Myeloma Auto Stem Cell Transplant Drug: Bortezomib Phase 3

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Tandem Autologous Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplant With Melphalan Followed by Melphalan and Bortezomib in Patients With Multiple Myeloma

Further study details as provided by Hackensack University Medical Center:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To determine the progression-free survival of patients with multiple myeloma treated with tandem cycles of high-dose melphalan followed by high-dose melphalan in combination with bortezomib with autologous HSC transplantation. [ Time Frame: 3 years ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • To determine the response rate, overall survival, and regimen-related toxicities of patients with multiple myeloma treated with high-dose melphalan or high-dose melphalan in combination with bortezomib given in tandem transplants. [ Time Frame: lifetime ]

Estimated Enrollment: 142
Actual Study Start Date: April 8, 2010
Estimated Study Completion Date: February 2023
Estimated Primary Completion Date: February 2023 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Tandem Transplantation with Melphalan and Bortezomib
Tandem autologous hematopoietic stem cell transplantation with melphalan followed by melphalan and bortezomib in patients with multiple myeloma
Drug: Bortezomib
Bortezomib 1.6mg/m2 on day -4 and day -1
Other Name: Velcade

Detailed Description:

Many patients with multiple myeloma receive 2 stem cell transplantations within a few months of each other as part of their treatment. Usually the drug Melphalan is used for both transplants.

Bortezomib is a drug that is used for treating multiple myeloma and has been used in combination with melphalan for stem cell transplantation for patients with multiple myeloma.

The purpose of this trial is to study the effects of doing 2 transplants, first using melphalan and second using melphalan and bortezomib. The trial is aiming to find out if adding the Bortezomib to the second transplant will increase the chances of staying in remission longer.
