Trial Objectives and Outline

- To determine the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) and the dose limiting toxicities (DLT) of PRLX 93936 administered IV 3 days a week (Monday, Wednesday and Friday) for 3 weeks followed by a 9 day rest period, as treatment for patients with relapsed or relapsed/refractory multiple myeloma. - To establish the dose of PRLX 93936 recommended for future studies. - To characterize potential toxicities of PRLX 93936. - To assess the pharmacokinetic profile of PRLX 93936. - To evaluate response to treatment, time to response (TTR) and duration of response. - To evaluate time to progression (TTP).
