Clinical Trial VICCHEM12107


A Phase 3, Multicenter, Randomized, Open-label Study to Compare the Efficacy and Safety of Pomalidomide (POM), Bortezomib (BTZ) and Low-Dose Dexamethasone (LD-DEX) versus Bortezomib and Low-Dose Dexamethasone in Subjects with Relapsed or Refractory Multiple Myeloma (MM)

Principal Investigator(s)

  • Protocol No. VICCHEM12107
  • Open Date: 03/31/2013
  • Staging: Phase III
  • Age Group: Adults
  • Scope: National
  • Objective: To compare the efficacy and safety of POM + BTZ + LD-DEX with BTZ + LD-DEX in subjects with relapsed or refractory MM
  • Disease Sites: Multiple Myeloma
  • Therapies: Molecular Targeted Agents / Immunotherapy / Biologics
  • Drugs: Bortezomib (BTZ); Dexamethasone; Pomalidomide (POM)(CC-4047); VELCADE
  • Participating Institutions: Vanderbilt University
  • National Clinical Trial ID: NCT01734928
  • Secondary Protocol No: CC-4047-MM-007


Patients are asked to take part in this research study because they have been diagnosed with multiple myeloma, a cancer of plasma cells (a type of immune cell that produces antibodies) in the bone marrow that has either returned after the patient's most recent treatment regimen (relapsed) or has not responded to their most recent treatment regimen (refractory). The purpose of this study is to see how well the combination of pomalidomide, bortezomib and dexamethasone works compared to the combination of bortezomib and dexamethasone. The study will also be assessing how safe the combination of pomalidomide, bortezomib and dexamethasone is and how this combination treatment affects the patient's quality of life compared to the combination of bortezomib and dexamethasone.
