An Open-Label, Dose Escalation, Phase 1 Study of MLN4924, A Novel Inhibitor of Nedd8-Activating Enzyme, in Adult Patients with Lymphoma or Multiple Myeloma
The goal of this clinical research study is learn the highest safe dose of MLN4924 that can be given to patients with lymphoma or MM. How much MLN4924 is absorbed into the bloodstream and eliminated from the body, how it affects genes and proteins that are involved in cancer, how it affects its targets in tumor cells, and how it affects tumor growth will also be studied. This is the first study using MLN4924 in humans.
Disease Group: Lymphoma,Myeloma
Treatment Agent: MLN4924
Treatment Location: Both at MD Anderson & outside MD Anderson at one or more Collaborating Sites or Institutions
Estimatated Length of Stay in Houston: The maximum duration of therapy, however, will be 12 months unless it is ;determined that a patient would derive;benefit from continued therapy beyond 12 months. It is anticipated that this ;study will last;for approximately 30 months.

Primary Objectives To determine the safety profile, maximum tolerated dose (MTD), and inform the phase 2 dose of MLN4924 administered as an IV infusion in patients with lymphoma or multiple myeloma To describe the PK and pharmacodynamics of MLN4924 in blood To investigate the pharmacodynamic effects of MLN4924 on skin and tumor Secondary Objectives To evaluate disease response that may be observed with MLN4924 To evaluate the relationship of exposure to MLN4924 and inhibition of Nedd8-Activating Enzyme (NAE) pathway activity in blood, skin, and tumor tissue To assess relationships between polymorphic variations in CYP and transporter protein genes and exposure to MLN4924 To assess banked tumor specimens for candidate biomarkers of response to treatment with MLN4924 including, but not limited to, NAE pathway expression and NFêB levels or activity
