To explore the outcome and side-effects in patients with multiple myeloma treated with velcade and combined chemotherapy.
6 patients with multiple myeloma were treated with the combination of velcade and dexamethasone or DVD (V-DVD regimen) chemotherapy.
6 patients responded to treatment. 4 patients achieved complete remission (CR), 1 achieved partial remission (PR) and 1 achieved micro responded (MR). Major toxicities consisted of peripheral neuropathy, thrombocytopenia and hepatic impairment.
Velcade combined chemotherapy is an effective and safety treatment for patients with multiple myeloma.
