Overall Status
This phase 2 study will be conducted at 10 centers and enroll patients from August 2013 to August 2015.Firstly, All patients included will provide written informed consent.Secondly,they will be randomized equally to receive modified VCD regimen1 arm or modified VCD regimen2 arm.In total, 47 patients per arm (or 94 in total) are required. The Treatment consists of four or six 4-week cycles of induction therapy followed by intensive therapy with auto-transplantation±modified VCD regimens and maintenance treatment with VD or CTD/TD regimen. Then,patients will be followed up for 24 months after chemotherapy. The investigators will record all the laboratory and clinical investigations to assess response at different points of the study. We also monitor and assess adverse events (AEs), as graded according to NCI-CTCAE Version 3.0.Response categories were based on the International Myeloma Working Group uniform response criteria.
