Condition multiple myeloma
Treatments lenalidomide, prednisone, dexamethasone
Phase phase 2
Sponsor H. Lee Moffitt Cancer Center and Research Institute
Collaborator Celgene
Start date January 2010
End date March 2017
Trial size 27 participants
Trial identifier NCT01054144, 108562, MCC-16018, RV-MM-PI-0454


The purpose of this research is to estimate the effectiveness of a response adapted approach with the use of the drug, lenalidomide in the treatment of older adults with newly diagnosed standard risk multiple myeloma. This means that participants will be given the study drug, lenalidomide but depending on how they respond to this drug they may also be given dexamethasone and/or prednisone to help with their treatment.

Additional Information

Official title Phase II Study of Response Adapted Therapy Using Single Agent Lenalidomide in Older Adults With Newly Diagnosed, Standard Risk Multiple Myeloma
Principal investigator Rachid Baz, M.D.
Description Summary: Patients will be started on the study drug, lenalidomide on Day 1, Cycle 1. Lenalidomide is a capsule that is to be taken orally (by mouth). If the patient's disease progresses after 2 cycles of therapy, a low dose of dexamethasone will be added. If the patient's disease is stable after 2 cycles of therapy, the use of an alternate corticosteroid (prednisone) will be added to the lenalidomide therapy they are receiving. Dexamethasone and prednisone are in tablet form and will be taken orally (by mouth). However, if the patient has a minimal response after an additional 2 cycles of lenalidomide therapy, the therapy will be continued until their disease progresses. See the intervention descriptions for further details.
