This study is to assess the efficacy and safety of lenalidomide in combination with adriamycin and low dose dexamethasone in newly diagnosed patients with symptomatic multiple myeloma as well as to collect information regarding the effect of this regimen on angiogenesis and bone remodeling of the study population.

Clinical Details

Official title: Phase II Open Label Study for the Assessment of the Efficacy and Safety of Lenalidomide & Adriamycin & Low Dose Dexamethasone (RAD) in Newly Diagnosed, Symptomatic Multiple Myeloma Patients

Study design: Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment

Primary outcome: Overall response rate

Secondary outcome:

Progression-free survival (PFS)

Time to progression (TTP)

Time to Next Therapy (TtNT)

Number and severity of Adverse events as a measure of safety and toxicity profile

Detailed description: This is a Phase II, non randomized, non- comparative, open label trial which assess the efficacy and safety of lenalidomide, adriamycin and low dose dexamethasone combination (RAD) in 45 newly diagnosed patients with symptomatic multiple myeloma as well as to collect information regarding the effect of this regimen on angiogenesis and bone remodeling of the study population. The recruitment period is estimated for 5 months while the treatment period and the follow up period 4 months and 1 month respectively. During the treatment initiation visit the response to the combination RAD according the International Myeloma Working Group (IMWG) criteria will be evaluated, biochemical markers of bone metabolism and angiogenic cytokines will be measured as well. IMWG Response evaluation will be repeated the day 1 of each treatment cycle as well as at the response evaluation visit. Finally biochemical markers of bone metabolism and angiogenic cytokines will be measured once more at the end of treatment visit.


Minimum age: 18 Years. Maximum age: 70 Years. Gender(s): Both.

Bilirubin ≤ 2-fold of upper normal limit 12. Creatinine clearance ≥60 ml/min 13. Expected survival ≥ 6 months as per PI's clinical judgment 14. Subjects able to tolerate aspirin, low molecular weight heparin or coumarinic agents as prophylactic anticoagulation 15. Female subject of childbearing potential must have 2 negative serum pregnancy tests (hCG) at Screening (once within 10-14 days and once 24 h before the study drug administration) and if sexually active must be using two medically acceptable, highly effective, adequate forms of birth control (ie, failure rate <1% per year when used consistently and correctly) prior to Screening and and for time period at least 28 days before the study drug administration and agree to continue using it while being in the study (Screening and Treatment Periods including dose interruptions). A female subject should continue using a highly effective method of birth control for 30 days following the end of treatment. 16. A male subject must agree to use an adequate form of contraception for the duration of the study, while taking the study drug, during dose interruptions at for at least 28 days after the last dose of study drug even if he has had a successful vasectomy and agree to have sexual relations only with women who use a highly effective birth control method. 17. Subjects must be free of any clinically significant disease (other than MM) that would interfere with study evaluations Exclusion Criteria: 1. Pregnancy, breastfeeding οr intention of pregnancy during the trial 2. Suspected or known hypersensitivity to any of the study drugs 3. Ongoing severe infection requiring intravenous antibiotic treatment 4. Prior malignancy, except for adequately treated basal cell or squamous cell skin cancer, in-situ cervical cancer, or other cancer from which the subject has been disease-free for at least 5 years.
