CyBorD vs. PAD in the Treatment of Newly Diagnosed Multiple Myeloma


Brief description of study

Bortezomib-based triple-drug combination has greatly improved the response rate of multiple myeloma patients. Bortezomib,doxorubicin,and dexamethasone (PAD) is commonly used in clinical practice.Recent studies have found that cyclophosphamide, bortezomib,and dexamethasone (CyBorD)seems better than PAD in efficacy. However, there is no randomized phase 3 trial comparing these two regimens in the treatment of newly diagnosed multiple myeloma patients.In this study, the investigators will compare the efficacy and safety of these two regimens using once-weekly subcutaneous injection of bortezomib.

Detailed Study Description

Bortezomib-based triple-drug combination has greatly improved the response rate of multiple myeloma patients. Bortezomib,doxorubicin,and dexamethasone (PAD) is commonly used in clinical practice. Recent studies have found that cyclophosphamide, bortezomib,and dexamethasone (CyBorD)seems better than PAD in efficacy. However, there is no randomized phase 3 trial comparing these two regimens in the treatment of newly diagnosed multiple myeloma patients. Moreover, studies have found that subcutaneous injection of bortezomib can decrease the incidence rate of peripheral neuropathy induced by bortezomib, however, most center use twice-weekly administration of bortezomib. According to our experience, once-weekly subcutaneous injection of bortezomib can further decrease the incidence rate of peripheral neuropathy without compromising the efficacy. Thus, in this phase 3 trial, the investigators will compare the efficacy and safety of these two regimens using once-weekly subcutaneous injection of bortezomib.
