Brief summary
This is a Phase I-Ib/II, open-label, multicenter study of AUY922 administered intravenously
in patients with multiple myeloma to determine the maximum tolerated dose. The Phase II part
will investigate the efficacy of AUY922 in patients with multiple myeloma. Additionally, the
study includes a Phase Ib combination part of AUY922 administered in combination with
bortezomib, to determine the maximum tolerated dose of the combination drugs in patients with
multiple myeloma.
