Status: Recruiting
Phase: Phase 1/Phase 2
Diagnosis: Multiple Myeloma
NCT ID: NCT01583283 (View complete trial on
DFCI Protocol ID: 12-191


The purpose of this study is to determine the best dose of ACY-1215 in combination with lenalidomide and dexamethasone in patients with relapsed or relapsed/refractory multiple myeloma. Once determined, the purpose of this study will be to determine the efficacy of ACY-1215 in combination with lenalidomide and dexamethasone in patients with relapsed multiple myeloma who have had 1-3 prior therapies and who are not lenalidomide-refractory.
