Am I Eligible?

The following criteria is a partial list of reasons why patients may or may not be eligible to participate in this clinical trial. Further evaluation with a medical professional will be required to determine full eligibility.

The following criteria is provided for health care professionals.

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Newly diagnosed myeloma requiring systemic chemotherapy as per International Myeloma Working Group (IMWG) uniform criteria and Diagnostic Criteria and Staging for Multiple Myeloma
    • Ideally, no prior therapy, or
    • No more than 1 cycle of therapy for emergent control of disease prior to enrolling on study, including prior treatment of hypercalcemia, spinal cord compression, or active and/or aggressively progressing myeloma with corticosteroids or lenalidomide or bortezomib-based regimens (treatment dose should not exceed the equivalent of 160 mg of dexamethasone in a 4 week period, or not more than 1 cycle)
    • Bisphosphonates are permitted
  • Eligible and plan to undergo ASCT in first remission
  • Measurable disease, prior to initial treatment as indicated by one or more of the following:
    • Serum M-protein ≥1.0 g/dL
    • Urine M-protein ≥200 mg/24 hours
    • Serum free light chain assay: involved free light chain level ≥10 mg/dL (≥100 mg/L) provided the serum free light chain ratio is abnormal.
  • Ability to take aspirin or other venous thromboembolism (VTE) anticoagulant therapy
  • Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) Performance Status score of 0 thru 2
  • Adequate hematologic, renal, and liver function.
  • All study participants must be registered into the mandatory Revlimid REMS® program and must be willing and able to comply with the requirements of that program.
  • Females of reproductive potential must adhere to the scheduled pregnancy testing as required in the Revlimid REMS® program.
  • Male patients with female partners of childbearing potential and female patients of childbearing potential are required to use two forms of acceptable contraception, including one barrier method, during their participation in the study and for 28 days following last dose of study drugs. Male patients must also refrain from donating semen or sperm during their participation in the study.
  • Willingness and ability to comply with study and follow-up procedures.
  • Ability to understand the nature of this study and give written informed consent.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Polyneuropathy, organomegaly, endocrinopathy, monoclonal protein, and skin changes (POEMS) syndrome
  • Plasma cell leukemia
  • Waldenström's macroglobulinemia or IgM myeloma
  • Presence of other active cancers, or history of treatment for invasive cancer ≤5 years. Patients with Stage I cancer who have received definitive local treatment and are considered unlikely to recur are eligible. All patients with previously treated in situ carcinoma (i.e., non-invasive) are eligible, as are patients with a history of non-melanoma skin cancer.
  • Radiotherapy to multiple sites or immunotherapy within 4 weeks before start of protocol treatment (localized radiotherapy to a single site at least 1 week before start is permissible)
  • Major surgical procedures ≤28 days of beginning study drug, or minor surgical procedures ≤7 days. No waiting required following port-a-cath placement.
  • Acute active infection requiring systemic antibiotics, antivirals, or antifungals within 2 weeks prior to first dose of study treatment
  • Presence of active gastrointestinal disease or other condition that will interfere significantly with the absorption, distribution, metabolism, or excretion of oral therapy (e.g., ulcerative disease, uncontrolled nausea, vomiting, diarrhea Grade ≥2, and malabsorption syndrome)
  • Any of the following cardiac diseases currently or within the last 6 months:
    • Left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) <40% as determined by echocardiogram (ECHO) or multiple-gated acquisition (MUGA) scan
    • Unstable angina pectoris
    • Congestive heart failure (New York Heart Association ≥ Grade 2
    • Acute myocardial infarction
    • Conduction abnormality not controlled with pacemaker or medication
    • Significant ventricular or supraventricular arrhythmias (patients with chronic rate-controlled atrial fibrillation in the absence of other cardiac abnormalities are eligible)
    • Valvular disease with significant compromise in cardiac function
  • Known seropositive for or active viral infection with human immunodeficiency virus or hepatitis A, B, or C virus. Patients who are seropositive because of hepatitis B virus vaccine are eligible.
  • Any clinically significant medical disease or condition that, in the treating Investigator's opinion, may interfere with protocol adherence or a patient's ability to give informed consent
  • Pregnant or lactating females
  • Contraindication to any of the required concomitant drugs, including dexamethasone, H1 and H2 blockers, and acetaminophen, or if patient has a history of prior thrombotic disease, warfarin or low molecular weight heparin
  • No health coverage, or if the copay for lenalidomide is not acceptable to the patient.
  • Psychological, familial, sociological, or geographical conditions that do not permit compliance with the protocol.
