The purpose of this study is to determine how well newly diagnosed multiple myeloma patients respond to an experimental regimen of Vincristine, DOXIL (doxorubicin HCl liposome injection) and Dexamethasone (VDD) versus the standard treatment of Vincristine, Doxorubicin and Dexamethasone (VAD).
This is a randomized, open label study comparing the efficacy, clinical benefit, toxicity and safety of the combination of Vincristine, DOXIL® (doxorubicin HCl liposome injection), and Dexamethasone (VDD) to the standard regimen of Vincristine, Doxorubicin and Dexamethasone (VAD) in patients with newly diagnosed multiple myeloma. Approximately 200 patients with newly diagnosed multiple myeloma will be randomized to receive either VDD or VAD. This study will determine and compare the objective response rate (the percentage of patients who attain an Objective Status of Complete Remission, Remission or Partial Remission) for patients receiving VDD vs. VAD. This study will also evaluate and compare the clinical benefit of VDD vs. VAD for the following measures: Hospitalization; Documented sepsis; Antibiotic use; Grade 3 or 4 neutropenia or neutropenic fever.
VDD: Vincristine 1.4 mg/m2 IV on Day 1; Doxil® 40 mg/m2 IV on Day 1; Dexamethasone 40 mg/day oral Days 1-4; VAD: Vincristine 0.4 mg/day continuous infusion Days 1-4; Doxorubicin 9.0 mg/m2/day continuous infusion Days 1-4; Dexamethasone 40 mg/day orally on Days 1-4; Every 28 days for 4 cycles
Allocation: Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment

Cytotoxic chemotherapy drugs, including doxorubicin, can directly promote hepatitis B virus (HBV) replication, but the mechanism has not been fully clarified. This study investigated the potential mec...
Antineoplastic antibiotic obtained from Streptomyces peucetius. It is a hydroxy derivative of DAUNORUBICIN.
An anthracycline which is the 4'-epi-isomer of doxorubicin. The compound exerts its antitumor effects by interference with the synthesis and function of DNA.
A microtubule subunit protein found in large quantities in mammalian brain. It has also been isolated from SPERM FLAGELLUM; CILIA; and other sources. Structurally, the protein is a dimer with a molecular weight of approximately 120,000 and a sedimentation coefficient of 5.8S. It binds to COLCHICINE; VINCRISTINE; and VINBLASTINE.
