Trial Information

Compassionate Use Study of Carfilzomib for Patients With Relapsing or Resistant Multiple Myeloma

The protocol has been designed for relapsing or refractory multiple myeloma patients. A
maximum of 30 patients may be treated on this protocol.

Since this is a compassionate use study of an investigational agent, the size is determined
by agreement with the manufacturer of carfilzomib. Therefore, the time period for enrollment
and accrual number will be limited to N=30.

or resistant after stem cell transplantation, or when other conventional therapies
have failed or are contraindicated

or measured clearance is ≥15 mL/min

- ANC > 1000/mm3 (may be supported with growth factors)

- Platelet count > 30,000/mm3 (may receive transfusion)

- Female participant of child-bearing potential has agreed to use dual methods of
contraception for the duration of the study

- Male participant has agreed to use a barrier method of contraception if sexually
active with a female of child-bearing potential

- Patients must have signed and IRB-approved written informed consent form and
demonstrate willingness to meet follow-up schedule and study procedure obligations
