Trial Information

A Phase II Study of Bone Marker Assessment of Multiple Myeloma Patients Treated With AminoBisphosphonates

- Each participant will receive a single dose of zoledronic acid intravenously after the
screening procedures.

- Participants will then return to the clinic once every month for 6 months and have the
following tests and procedures performed: Medical history update; physical exam; ECOG
Performance Status; blood tests; and urine tests.

- After 6 months there will be an end of study visit, where the following procedures will
take place: medical history update; bone marrow aspirate and biopsy; skeletal survey.

Inclusion Criteria:

- Men or women 18 years of age or older

- Confirmed diagnosis of multiple myeloma(MM) by Durie and Dalmon staging criteria on
IV bisphosphonate therapy with either pamidronate or zoledronic acid for 8-12 months

- MM patients in either CR or PR by EBMT criteria

- ECOG Performance Status of 0-2

Exclusion Criteria:

- MM patients on active anti-MM therapy (maintenance regimens allowed)

- Renal failure with serum creatinine >2mg/dL and/or creatinine clearance of <30ml/min

- Relapsed, refractory or progressive disease

- Any condition or situation that, in the opinion of the investigator, may put the
subject at significant risk, confound the results of the study, or interfere
significantly with the subject's participation in the study

- Hypersensitivity or any contraindication to a single dose of zoledronic acid
