Selumetinib in Treating Patients With Multiple Myeloma
The purpose of this study is to find out what effects, good and/or bad, AZD6244 has on participants and their multiple myeloma. In some types of cancer such as myeloma, a protein called MEK is overactive. This protein is important for cancer cells to be able to reproduce and survive. Because AZD6244 prevents MEK from working properly, it may keep cancer cells from growing and living, so cancer may shrink or its growth may slow down. There is no guarantee, however, that this will happen to the patient's cancer if they join this study.

|Study Start Date:||March 2010|
|Primary Completion Date:||March 2012 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
Experimental: Treatment (selumetinib)
Patients receive selumetinib orally BID on days 1-28. Courses repeat every 28 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
Other Names:Other: laboratory biomarker analysis
I. To assess the response rate of AZD6244 hydrogen sulfate capsules in patients with relapsed or refractory MM.
I. To evaluate the toxicity of AZD6244 in patients with MM. II. To estimate progression-free survival and duration of response to AZD6244. III. To test whether AZD6244 hydrogen sulfate capsules downregulate tumor cell pERK1/2.
Patients receive selumetinib orally twice daily (BID) on days 1-28. Courses repeat every 28 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up every 6 weeks.
