Condition multiple myeloma
Treatment bortezomib
Phase phase 2
Target proteasome

Start date December 2009
End date December 2014
Trial size 40 participants
Trial identifier NCT01517724, UCL/08/0170


The aim of this trial is to determine whether bortezomib improves response and delays progression for multiple myeloma patients after high dose therapy and autologous stem cell transplant. It will also assess the effect of bortezomib treatment on patient bone health.

time frame: At 1, 2, 3 and 9 months after start of treatment
assess the effect of bortezomib consolidation on Minimal Residue Disease status
time frame: At 6 and 12 months post ASCT
determine progression free survival
time frame: At 2 years post ASCT
evaluate the quality of life for patients receiving bortezomib consolidation
time frame: Up to 8 months after treatment start
