This study will include patients with previously treated systemic relapsed or refractory light-chain (AL) amyloidosis who require further therapy and will be aimed at determining the safety profile and the maximum tolerated dose/recommended phase 2 dose of MLN9708 administered orally.

Drug: MLN9708
Phase 1

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Open Label

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of Participants with Adverse Events as a Measure of Safety and Tolerability [ Time Frame: From start of study through 30 days after last dose or until initiation of subsequent antineoplastic therapy ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Maximum Tolerated Dose and Recommended phase 2 dose of MLN9708 [ Time Frame: Dose Limiting Toxcities determined in Cycle 1 and adverse events monitored throughout the study will inform the recommended phase 2 dose ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Based on toxicity and efficacy outcomes

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Whole blood 20S proteasome activity profile and inhibition parameters of multiple-dose oral MLN9708 [ Time Frame: Days 1,2,8,15,16,22 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Plasma pharmacokinetic and whole blood pharmacodynamic effect of MLN9708

  • Number of patients with hematologic response rate during study period [ Time Frame: Duration of treatment and then every 6 weeks thereafter until disease progression or initiation of subsequent antineoplastic therapy ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Complete response, very good partial response, partial response

  • Time to and duration of organ response and organ improvement [ Time Frame: After cycles 3,6,9,12; every 6 months thereafter until disease progression or initiation of subsequent antineoplastic therapy ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    According to standardized criteria

  • Time to hematologic and organ disease progression [ Time Frame: Until evidence of hematologic and/or disease progression ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Time from the date of the first dose of MLN9708 to the date of confirmed organ or hematologic disease progression, respectively [ Time Frame: Every 6 weeks from end of treatment until disease progression or initiation of subsequent antineoplastic therapy ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Progression free survival

  • Patient survival probability at 1 year after the first dose of MLN9708 [ Time Frame: Every 12 weeks after progressive disease or initiation of subsequent antineoplastic therapy ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Enrollment: 27
Study Start Date: May 2011
Estimated Study Completion Date: February 2014
Primary Completion Date: December 2013 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: MLN9708 Drug: MLN9708
Patients will receive escalating doses of MLN9708 orally on Days 1, 8 and 15 of a 28-day cycle. If there is no hematologic response after completion of 3 cycles, dexamethasone will be added on Days 1 to 4 of every cycle beginning with Cycle 4. If there is no hematologic response after the completion of 6 cycles, patients will discontinue therapy.

  • Must have cardiac biomarker risk stage I or II disease
  • Must have adequate hematologic, hepatic, and renal function
  • Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status of 0 to 2
  • Female patients who are post menopausal, surgically sterile, or agree to practice 2 effective methods of contraception or agree to abstain from heterosexual intercourse
  • Male patients who agree to practice effective barrier contraception or agree to abstain from heterosexual intercourse

Exclusion Criteria

  • Peripheral neuropathy that is greater or equal to Grade 2
  • Cardiac status as described in protocol
  • Severe diarrhea (≥ Grade 3) not controllable with medication or requires administration of total parenteral nutrition
  • Known gastrointestinal condition or procedure that could interfere with swallowing or the oral absorption of tolerance of MLN9708
  • Uncontrolled infection requiring systematic antibiotics
  • Known human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) positive, hepatitis B surface antigen-positive status, or known or suspected active hepatitis C infection
