This clinical trial is for men and women with multiple myeloma that has returned after
treatment (relapsed) or did not respond to prior treatment (refractory).
This is a phase 1 study of the addition of the PD 0332991 (Palbociclib) CDK4/CDK6 inhibitor
to lenalidomide / dexamethasone treatment in RRMM. The purpose of the study is to determine
the effectiveness of the combination of PD 0332991, lenalidomide and dexamethasone (PLD) in
treating relapsed/refractory multiple myeloma. PD 0332991 (Palbociclib) is an experimental
drug and is a pill taken by mouth. It works by blocking specific growth signals within cancer
cells. Lenalidomide (also called Revlimid) is approved for use with dexamethasone for people
with multiple myeloma who have received prior therapy. Study participants will receive
different doses of Palbociclib and lenalidomide depending on when they enroll in the study.
The study will help determine the maximum tolerated dose of the combination of the study
drugs. Treatment schedule (treatment cycles are 28 days):
- Palbociclib daily for Days 1-14 of each cycle
- Lenalidomide daily for Days 8-21 (or Days 1-21, depending on dose level) of each cycle
- Dexamethasone on Days 1, 8, 15 and 22 of each cycle. Participants will continue on study
treatment as long as they are responding to therapy and not experiencing unacceptable

- Subject has histologically confirmed multiple myeloma that expresses phosphorylated
retinoblastoma protein (pRb), as assessed using a historical biopsy sample if
available, or a freshly obtained tumor sample.

after prior therapy or lack of response to currently used therapy.
- Subject must have received and relapsed or progressed after prior treatment with
- Subject has measurable disease as defined by > 0.5 g/dL serum monoclonal protein, >10
mg/dL involved serum free light chain (either kappa or lambda) provided that the serum
free light chain ratio is abnormal, >0.2 g/24 hrs urinary M-protein excretion, and/or
measurable plasmacytoma(s) of at least 1cm in greatest dimension as measured by either
CT scanning or MRI.
- Subject has a Karnofsky performance status ≥60% (>50% if due to bony involvement of
- Subject is able to take prophylactic anticoagulation as detailed in section 9.1
(patients intolerant to aspirin may use warfarin or low molecular weight heparin).
- Subject is registered into the mandatory Revlimid REMS®program, and is willing and
able to comply with the requirements of Revlimid REMS® program.
- If subject is a female of childbearing potential (FCBP), she must have a negative
serum or urine pregnancy test with a sensitivity of at least 25 mIU/mL within 10 - 14
days prior to and again within 24 hours of prescribing lenalidomide (prescriptions
must be filled within 7 days) and must either commit to continued abstinence from
heterosexual intercourse or begin TWO acceptable methods of birth control, one highly
effective method and one additional effective method AT THE SAME TIME, at least 28
days before she starts taking lenalidomide. FCBP must also agree to ongoing pregnancy
testing. Men must agree to use a latex condom during sexual contact with females of
child bearing potential even if they have had a successful vasectomy. Men must agree
to continue birth control for 90 days post-last dose of PD-0332991

required in the Revlimid REMS® program.

subject at unacceptable risk if he/she were to participate in the study or confounds
the ability to interpret data from the study.
