Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Maximum Tolerated Dose [ Time Frame: 5 weeks in once weekly (QW) dose cohorts and 3 weeks in twice weekly (BIW) dose cohorts ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

    Maximum Tolerated Dose (MTD) was defined as the highest dose level that has 0/1 out of 6 patients experiences Dose Limited Toxicity (DLT). MTD is defined separately for QW and BIQ dose cohorts.

    DLT was defined as adverse events occurring during Cycle 1 and: (1) related to VELCADE, (2) Grade 4 thrombocytopenia or neutropenia, (3) Grade 3 or higher nonhematologic toxicity.


  • Subjects With Treatment Emergent Adverse Events [ Time Frame: from first study-related procedure to 30 days after last dose of study medication ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Treatment emergent adverse events observed during outcome measure time frame

  • Subjects With Serious Treatment Emergent Adverse Events [ Time Frame: from first study-related procedure to 30 days after last dose of study medication ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Serious treatment emergent adverse events observed during outcome measure time frame

  • Subjects Grade 3/4/5 Treatment Emergent Adverse Events [ Time Frame: from first study-related procedure to 30 days after last dose of study medication ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

    Grade 3/4/5 treatment emergent adverse events observed during outcome measure time frame.

    Grade is determined according to Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Event (CTCAE) Version 3.0.


  • Subjects With Treatment Emergent Adverse Events Leading to Treatment Termination [ Time Frame: from first study-related procedure to 30 days after last dose of study medication ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Treatment emergent adverse events observed during outcome measure time frame leading to treatment termination


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Best Confirmed Hematologic Responders [ Time Frame: from first dose of study medication to end of study visit ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Hematologic response was determined by the investigator per the response criteria for immunoglobulin light chain amyloidosis by Gertz (2005). It include Complete and Partial Responders (CR+PR). CR requires serum and urine negative for a monoclonal protein by immunofixation and free light chain ratio normal. PR requires: 1. reduction in quantitative serum M-protein by 50% if baseline value is at least 0.5 g/dL, 2. if light chain is detected in the urine (with a consistent peak and >100 mg/ 24 hours), then 50% reduction is required, 3. if free light chain >10 mg/dL, reduction by 50% is required.
