This is an open-label phase I study in which dovitinib is given in combination with bortezomib and dexamethasone. Dovitinib dose escalation is planned in order to determine its maximum tolerated dose when given in this combination.

Clinical Details

Official title: Phase I, Open Label, Clinical Study to Determine the Maximum Tolerated Dose (MTD) of Oral Dovitinib (TKI258) When Given in Combination With Bortezomib and Dexamethasone for the Treatment of Relapsed/Refractory Multiple Myeloma Patients

Study design: Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment

Primary outcome: Evaluate the safety and dose-limiting toxicity of treatment with dovitinib in combination with bortezomib/ dexamethasone.

Secondary outcome: To assess the overall response rate for the combination dovitinib/bortezomib/ dexamethasone in patients receiving at least 4 cycles of therapy.


Minimum age: 18 Years. Maximum age: N/A. Gender(s): Both.

chemotherapy, immunotherapy, hormonal therapy and monoclonal antibodies (but excluding nitrosurea, mitomycin-C, targeted therapy and radiation) ≤ 4 weeks prior to starting study drug, or who have not recovered from the side effects of such therapy

- Subjects who have had radiotherapy ≤ 4 weeks prior to starting study drug, or ≤ 2

weeks prior to starting study drug in the case of localized radiotherapy (e. g. for analgesic purpose or for lytic lesions at risk of fracture), or who have not recovered from radiotherapy toxicities

- Subjects who have undergone major surgery (e. g. intra-thoracic, intra-abdominal or

intra-pelvic), open biopsy or significant traumatic injury ≤ 4 weeks prior to starting study drug, or subjects who have had minor procedures, percutaneous biopsies or placement of vascular access device ≤ 1 week prior to starting study drug, or who have not recovered from side effects of such procedure or injury

- Subjects with any of the following concurrent severe and/or uncontrolled medical

conditions which could compromise participation in the study:

- Impaired cardiac function or clinically significant cardiac diseases, including

any of the following: 1. History or presence of serious uncontrolled ventricular arrhythmias 2. Clinically significant resting bradycardia 3. LVEF assessed by 2-D echocardiogram (ECHO) < 50% or lower limit of normal (whichever is higher) or multiple gated acquisition scan (MUGA) < 45% or lower limit of normal (whichever is higher). 4.
