Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To evaluate the clinical efficacy of AT7519M alone or in combination with bortezomib [ Time Frame: Subjects with be followed until disease progression (an average of 4 cycles per subject. i.e an average of 84 days) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Efficacy will be assessed using the International Multiple Myeloma Working Group (IMWG) Response Criteria

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Assess the type, incidence and severity of clinically significant treatment emergent adverse events as assessed by National Cancer Institute - Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (NCI-CTCAE) V 4.03 [ Time Frame: Subjects with be followed until disease progression (an average of 4 cycles per subject, i.e an average of approximately 84 days) ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • To define the pharmacokinetic profile of AT7519M and bortezomib when administered alone or in combination with bortezomib [ Time Frame: 2 cycles (i.e an average of 42 days) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The pharmacokinetic evaluation will include the calculation of plasma clearance and elimination phase half-life for AT7519M and bortezomib

  • To identify the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) of AT7519M in combination with bortezomib [ Time Frame: Subjects with be followed until disease progression (an average of 4 cycles per subject, i.e an average of approximately 84 days) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The MTD will be based on the incidence of dose limiting toxicities

Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Treatment
Patients will be enrolled into 3 groups which will run sequentially. Groups A and B will receive AT7519M only, whereas Group C will receive AT7519M in combination with Bortezomib.
Drug: AT7519M, Bortezomib

Part A: Nine patients will receive AT7519M as an intravenous infusion on days 1, 4, 8 and 11 of a three week cycle. The starting dose of AT7519M will be 21mg/m^2/dose and will be increased to 27mg/m^2/dose during subsequent cycles in the absence of AT7519M-related toxicities.

Part B: Amendment clarified there will be no further exploration of AT7519M as a monotherapy.

Part C: Amendment modified dose escalation to a conventional 3 + 3 design with a maximum total of 14 patients will be treated at the maximum tolerated dose.

Detailed Description:
The clinical study AT7519M/0004 is an open-label multicenter study to investigate the efficacy of AT7519M alone and AT7519M in combination with bortezomib in patients with previously treated multiple myeloma (MM).
