(Experimental)
Phase 1: Carfilzomib will be administered at an escalating dose with dexamethasone administered at 8mg. Phase 2: Carfilzomib will be administered at the MTD determined in phase 1. Maintenance: Carfilzomib and dexamethasone will be administered in the same fashion as the previous treatment cycles, but only on days 1, 2, 15, and 16.
carfilzomib and dexamethasone Krypolis®
Phase 1: Carfilzomib will be administered at an escalating dose by cohort as 60-minute IV infusion on Days 1, 2, 8, 9, 15, and 16 of a 28-day cycle. On Cycle 1 Days 1 and 2, carfilzomib will be given at 20 mg/m^2. For all subsequent doses, carfilzomib will be administered at the dose assigned to the cohort (56, 70, or 88 mg/m^2). Dexamethasone (8 mg IV or PO) will be administered prior to carfilzomib on Days 1, 2, 8, 9, 15, and 16. Phase 2: Carfilzomib will be administered at the MTD determined in phase 1. Maintenance: From Cycle 9 onward, carfilzomib and dexamethasone will be administered in the same fashion as during the previous treatment cycle, but only on days 1, 2, 15, and 16.

Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status ≤ 2 6. Adequate hepatic function within 14 days prior to first dose, with bilirubin < 1.5 × the upper limit of normal (ULN), and aspartate aminotransferase (AST) and alanine aminotransferase (ALT) < 3 × ULN 7. LVEF ≥ 40%. 2-D transthoracic echocardiogram (ECHO) is the preferred method of evaluation. Multigated Acquisition Scan (MUGA) is acceptable if ECHO is not available. 8. Absolute neutrophil count (ANC) ≥ 1000/mm3 within 14 days prior to first dose. Screening ANC is to be independent of granulocyte colony stimulating factor support for ≥ 1 week and pegylated granulocyte colony stimulating factor for ≥ 2 weeks. 9. Hemoglobin ≥ 8.0 g/dL within 14 days prior to enrollment. Use of erythropoietic stimulating factors and red blood cell (RBC) transfusions per institutional guidelines is allowed. 10. Platelet count ≥ 75,000/mm3 (≥ 50,000/mm^3 if myeloma involvement in the bone marrow is > 50%) within 14 days prior to first dose. Patients must not have received platelet transfusions for at least 7 days prior to obtaining the screening platelet count 11. Calculated or measured creatinine clearance (CrCl) of ≥ 15 mL/min within 14 days prior to first dose. Calculation are based on a standard formula, such as the Cockcroft and Gault: [(140 - Age) x Mass (kg) / (72 x Creatinine mg/dL)]; multiply result by 0.85 if female 12. Written informed consent in accordance with federal, local, and institutional guidelines 13. Female patients of childbearing potential (FCBP) must have a negative serum pregnancy test within 14 days prior to first dose and agree to use an effective method of contraception during and for 3 months following last dose of drug (more frequent pregnancy tests may be conducted if required per local regulations). Postmenopausal females (> 45 years old and without menses for > 1 year) and surgically sterilized females are exempt from a pregnancy test 14. Male patients must agree to use an effective barrier method of contraception during study and for 3 months following the last dose if sexually active with a FCBP Exclusion Criteria: 1.
