  • Serum calcium or albumin-adjusted serum calcium ≥ 2.1 mmol/L (8.4 mg/dL) and ≤ 2.9 mmol/L (11.5 mg/dL) (Reference range 8.5-10.8 mg/dL)
  • Able to tolerate daily supplementation of calcium and vitamin D
  • Vitamin D level ≥ 30 ng/mL after repletion
  • Participants must have normal organ as defined below:
    • Total bilirubin ≤ 2.0 x ULN
    • AST(SGOT) ≤2.5 × institutional upper limit of normal
    • ALT(SGPT) ≤2.5 × institutional upper limit of normal
  • Plan to receive anti-myeloma therapies.
  • Age ≥ 18 years.
  • ECOG performance status ≤ 2
  • Life expectancy greater than 6 months

  • Plasma cell leukemia.
  • Prior history or current evidence of osteonecrosis/osteomyelitis of the jaw.
  • Active dental or jaw condition which requires oral surgery, including tooth extraction.
  • Non-healed dental/oral surgery, including tooth extraction.
  • Planned invasive dental procedures during the course of study.
  • Evidence of any of the following conditions per subject self-report or medical chart review
    • Any prior invasive malignancy within 5 years of enrollment that may affect outcome of study
    • Any non-invasive malignancy not treated with curative intent or with known active disease within 5 years before enrollment that may affect outcome of study
    • Major surgery or significant traumatic injury occurring within 4 weeks before enrollment
    • Active infection with Hepatitis B virus or Hepatitis C virus
    • known infection with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)
    • Active infection requiring IV anti-infective therapy
  • Subject is pregnant or breast feeding, or planning to become pregnant within 5 months after the end of treatment.
  • Female subject of child-bearing potential is not willing to use, in combination with her partner, 2 methods of highly effective contraception during treatment and for 5 months after the end of treatment.
  • Clinically significant hypersensitivity to denosumab 120 mg.
  • Known sensitivity to any of the products to be administered during the study (e.g. calcium, or vitamin D).
  • Subject is receiving or is less than 14 days since ending other experimental drug (no marketing authorization for any indication).
