Study Design

Endpoint classification efficacy study
Intervention model single group assignment
Masking open label
Primary purpose treatment
Bortezomib will be administered by subcutaneous injection twice weekly for 2 weeks (Days 1, 4, 8, and 11) at 1.3 mg/m2/dose followed by a 10-day rest period for a 21 day cycle. Dose modifications are permitted as per a prescribed algorithm. Acyclovir at 400mg daily is recommended as prophylaxis for herpes zoster. Restaging scans, with evaluation of response, will be done every 2 cycles (6 weeks of treatment ± 7 days). Treatment will continue until clinical disease progression, unacceptable toxicity, treatment delay > 2 weeks, or at the discretion of the treating physician or patient.
