Brief Summary:
This phase II clinical trial is studying how well gamma-secretase/Notch signalling pathway inhibitor RO4929097 (RO4929097) after autologous stem cell transplant works in treating patients with multiple myeloma. Giving chemotherapy, such as melphalan, before autologous stem cell transplant stops the growth of cancer cells by stopping them from dividing or killing them. Before treatment, stem cells are collected from the patient's blood and stored. After chemotherapy, the stem cells are returned to the patient to replace the blood-forming cells that were destroyed by the chemotherapy. RO4929097 may stop the growth of cancer cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Giving RO4929097 after autologous stem cell transplant may kill more cancer cells.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Treatment (RO4929097 after autologous stem cell transplant)

STEM CELL TRANSPLANTATION AND CHEMOTHERAPY: Patients undergo standard mobilization and collection of autologous peripheral stem cells (>= 4.0 x 10^6 CD34+ cells/kg). Patients then receive high-dose melphalan IV on days -3 and -2 and undergo autologous stem cell transfusion on day 0. Patients with progressive disease, stable disease, partial response, stringent complete response, or complete response are taken off study; patients with residual/persistent disease (VGPR) continue to therapeutic treatment.

THERAPEUTIC TREATMENT: Beginning 100-110 days after transplantation, patients receive oral gamma-secretase inhibitor RO4929097 once daily on days 1-3, 8-10, and 15-17. Courses repeat every 21 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Overall response rate of gamma-secretase/Notch signalling pathway inhibitor RO4929097 in eradicating residual/persistent disease, defined as conversion from VGPR to CR or sCR [ Time Frame: Up to 42 days ]
    A Simon's 2-stage optimal Phase II design will be used to monitor the study.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Clonogenic myeloma progenitor cells [ Time Frame: At baseline, at 100 days post-transplant, and at 6 weeks ]
    Logistic regression models will be used to study the association of clinical response (relapse) and the myeloma stem cell kinetics (present and absent of cell, and/or percentage of cells).

  2. Incidence of adverse events and abnormal laboratory variables as assessed according to the NCI-CTCAE version 4.0 [ Time Frame: Up to 30 days ]
    Adverse events will be reported in frequency tables overall, by intensity, and by relationship.

Layout table for eligibility information
Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older   (Adult, Older Adult)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Patients must have a diagnosis of multiple myeloma as defined below with staging based on the International Staging System:

    • Multiple myeloma - all three required (Note: these criteria identify stage 1B and stages II and IIIA/B myeloma by Durie/Salmon stage; stage 1A becomes smoldering or indolent myeloma):

      • Monoclonal plasma cells in the bone marrow ≥ 10% and/or presence of a biopsy-proven plasmacytoma
      • Monoclonal protein present in the serum and/or urine (if no monoclonal protein is detected [non-secretory disease], then >= 30% monoclonal bone marrow plasma cells and/or biopsy-proven plasmacytoma is required)
      • Myeloma-related organ dysfunction (1 or more) (a variety of other types of end organ dysfunctions can occasionally occur and lead to a need for therapy; such dysfunction is sufficient to support classification as myeloma if proven to be myeloma related):

        • Calcium elevation in the blood (serum calcium > 10.5 mg/L or upper limit of normal)
        • Renal insufficiency (serum creatinine > 2mg/dL)
        • Anemia (hemoglobin < 10 g/dL or 2 g < normal)
        • Lytic bone lesions or osteoporosis (if a solitary [biopsy-proven] plasmacytoma or osteoporosis alone [without fractures] are the sole defining criteria, then > 30% plasma cells are required in the bone marrow)
  • Patients must have measurable disease
