  • MMRF Molecular Profiling Protocol

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    Here we propose an "integrative sequencing approach" utilizing a 1500 gene exome comparative analysis between multiple myeloma or related plasma cell malignancies and normal cells coupled to capture transcriptome sequencing to provide a nearly comprehensive landscape of the genetic alterations for the purpose of identifying informative and/or actionable mutations in patients with multiple myeloma and plasma cell malignancies. The approach will enable the detection of point mutations, insertions/deletions, gene fusions and rearrangements, amplifications/deletions, and outlier expressed genes among other classes of alterations.

  • SAR650984 in Combination With Carfilzomib for Treatment of Relapsed or Refractory Multiple Myeloma

    open to eligible people ages up to 18 years

    This study will be conducted as a standard Phase 1b, open-label, multi-center study of patients with relapsed and/or refractory Myeloma who have received at least two prior therapeutic treatments or regimens. Throughout the Phase I portion of this study, a standard 3+3 dose escalation design will be utilized. Two dosing cohorts will evaluate escalating doses SAR650984 (5mg/kg and 10 mg/kg Day 1 and 15 of each 28-day cycle) with standard dose Carfilzomib (20-27 mg/mg2). Once a safe dose is established, an expansion cohort will further evaluate safety and begin to assess activity of this combination (SAR650984 (5mg/kg or 10 mg/kg Day 1 and 15 of each 28-day cycle) with standard dose Carfilzomib). During the dose escalation portion of the study, the DLT period will be the first cycle (28 days) or from Day 1 through Day 28 of initial study treatment. Expansion Phase Cohort An expansion cohort will begin once the MTD of SAR650984 plus standard dose Carfilzomib is established. The Expansion Cohort will enroll 18 patients for additional safety and preliminary efficacy data of SAR650984 plus Carfilzomib at the MTD.

  • Cytogenetic Studies in Acute Leukemia and Multiple Myeloma

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    Chromosomal analysis or the study of genetic differences in patients previously untreated with AML, ALL, MDS or MM may be helpful in the diagnosis and classification of disease. It may also improve the ability to predict the course of disease and the selection of therapy. Institutions must have either an Alliance-approved cytogeneticist or an agreement from an Alliance-approved main member cytogenetics laboratory to enroll a patient on CALGB 8461. The Alliance Approved Institutional Cytogeneticists list is posted on the Alliance for Clinical Trials in Oncology website.

  • Lenalidomide in Treating Patients With Multiple Myeloma Undergoing Autologous Stem Cell Transplant

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    This randomized phase III trial studies lenalidomide to see how well it works compared to a placebo in treating patients with multiple myeloma who are undergoing autologous stem cell transplant. Giving chemotherapy before a peripheral blood stem cell transplant helps kill any cancer cells that are in the body and helps make room in the patient's bone marrow for new blood-forming cells (stem cells) to grow. After treatment, stem cells are collected from the patient's blood and stored. More chemotherapy is then given to prepare the bone marrow for the stem cell transplant. The stem cells are then returned to the patient to replace the blood-forming cells that were destroyed by the chemotherapy. Biological therapies, such as lenalidomide, may stimulate or suppress the immune system in different ways and stop cancer cells from growing. Giving lenalidomide after autologous stem cell transplant may be an effective treatment for multiple myeloma.

  • Lenalidomide or Observation in Treating Patients With Asymptomatic High-Risk Smoldering Multiple Myeloma

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    This randomized phase II/III trial studies how well lenalidomide works and compares it to observation in treating patients with asymptomatic high-risk asymptomatic (smoldering) multiple myeloma. Biological therapies such as lenalidomide, may stimulate the immune system in different ways and stop cancer cells from growing. Sometimes the cancer may not need treatment until it progresses. In this case, observation may be sufficient. It is not yet known whether lenalidomide is effective in treating patients with high-risk smoldering multiple myeloma than observation alone.

  • Randomized Trial of Lenalidomide, Bortezomib, Dexamethasone vs High-Dose Treatment With SCT in MM Patients up to Age 65

    Sorry, not currently recruiting here

    The drugs, lenalidomide, bortezomib, and dexamethasone, are approved by the FDA. They have not been approved in the combination for multiple myeloma or any other type of cancer. Bortezomib is currently approved by the FDA for the treatment of multiple myeloma. Lenalidomide is approved for use with dexamethasone for patients with multiple myeloma who have received at least one prior therapy and for the treatment of certain types of myelodysplastic syndrome (another type of cancer affecting the blood). Dexamethasone is commonly used, either alone, or in combination with other drugs, to treat multiple myeloma. Please note that Bortezomib and Lenalidomide are provided to patients participating in this trial at no charge. Melphalan and cyclophosphamide, the drugs used during stem cell collection and transplant, are also approved by the FDA. Melphalan is an FDA-approved chemotherapy for multiple myeloma and is used as a high-dose conditioning treatment prior to stem cell transplantation. Cyclophosphamide is used, either alone, or in combination with other drugs, to treat multiple myeloma. These drugs have been used in other multiple myeloma studies and information from those studies suggests that this combination of therapy may help to treat newly diagnosed multiple myeloma. In this research study, we are looking to explore the drug combination, lenalidomide, bortezomib and dexamethasone alone or when combined with autologous stem cell transplantation to see what side effects it may have and how well it works for treatment of newly diagnosed multiple myeloma. Specifically, the objective of this trial is to determine if, in the era of novel drugs, high dose therapy (HDT) is still necessary in the initial management of multiple myeloma in younger patients. In this study, HDT as compared to conventional dose treatment would be considered superior if it significantly prolongs progression-free survival by at least 9 months or more, recognizing that particular subgroups may benefit more compared to others.

  • Study of the Combination of Panobinostat & Carfilzomib in Patients With Relapsed &/or Refractory Multiple Myeloma

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    The purpose of this study is to find out what effects, good and/or bad, the combination of panobinostat and carfilzomib have on the patient's cancer. It will determine the side effects of different dose levels of panobinostat and carfilzomib and determine the best dose and schedule of the two drugs to recommend for future studies. The study will assess the effects of the drug on multiple myeloma. In addition, tests to study the way the drugs work will also be done. The combination of the 2 drug classes have shown both pre-clinical (studies done in the lab) and clinical (studies done with people) effects against multiple myeloma. For this reason, these 2 drugs are being studied in combination to determine the side effects and anti-myeloma effects of the 2 drugs.
