This is a multicenter, dose-escalating, Phase 1b trial in patients with relapsed or relapsed-and-refractory multiple myeloma. Patients will be dosed on Days 1 and 8 of each 21 day cycle.
This study will be conducted in two parts. In Part 1, the MTD determining portion of the study, patients will be enrolled in cohorts of 3 patients at each dose level. At least 3 patients will complete 21 days at each dose level and will be evaluated for safety and tolerability before additional patients are treated at higher doses. Doses will be increased following a modified Fibonacci scheme.
In Part 2, twelve additional patients will be enrolled at the MTD determined in Part 1 (or the dose for the highest dose cohort completed if the MTD has not been reached) to further evaluate the safety, tolerability, and preliminary efficacy of this dose regimen.
Serum fluphenazine pharmacokinetic studies will be performed during the first cycle of the therapy in all Part 1 and Part 2 consenting patients.
Allocation: Non-Randomized, Control: Uncontrolled, Endpoint Classification: Safety Study, Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment

An asymptomatic and slow-growing PLASMA CELL dyscrasia characterized by presence of MYELOMA PROTEINS and clonal bone marrow plasma cells without end-organ damage (e.g., renal impairment). It is distinguished from MONOCLONAL GAMMOPATHY OF UNDETERMINED SIGNIFICANCE by a much higher risk of progression to symptomatic MULTIPLE MYELOMA.
A rare, aggressive variant of MULTIPLE MYELOMA characterized by the circulation of excessive PLASMA CELLS in the peripheral blood. It can be a primary manifestation of multiple myeloma or develop as a terminal complication during the disease.
