  • A Phase 1/2 Trial of Carfilzomib and Melphalan and Conditioning for Autologous Stem Cell Transplantation for Multiple Myeloma (CARAMEL) (CARAMEL) Jacksonville, Fla., Rochester, Minn.

    This phase I/II trial studies the side effects and best dose of carfilzomib when given together with melphalan and to see how well they work in treating patients with multiple myeloma before stem cell transplant. Carfilzomib may stop the growth of cancer cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as melphalan, work in different ways to stop the growth of cancer cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. Giving carfilzomib together with melphalan may kill more cancer cells.
