Clinical study reports findings of combination therapy with DOXIL

treatment regimen without compromising efficacy.

"This phase II study evaluated DVd as an alternative to the VAD regimen. With DVd, DOXIL is administered as a one hour infusion (compared to a 96 hour infusion with VAD, which also requires indwelling venous access), and vincristine as an IV push every 28 days. The results from this study are encouraging and further study of the DVd regimen in multiple myeloma is warranted," said Mohamad A. Hussein, M.D., Director of the Multiple Myeloma Research Program at the Cleveland Clinic Taussig Cancer Center, the lead investigator of the study.

About Multiple Myeloma and DOXIL
There are more than 14,600 new cases of myeloma in the U.S. each year, representing 20 percent of blood cancers and 1 percent of all types of cancer. Multiple myeloma is a cancer of plasma cells. Plasma cells are normally present in the bone marrow and are responsible for antibody production in response to infection and other immune triggering events. In myeloma, a defective plasma cell (myeloma cell) gives rise to the much larger number of myeloma cells which build up in the bone marrow. This process disrupts the normal immune system as well as displacing the normal bone marrow cells. 1

Indication
DOXIL is indicated for the treatment of metastatic carcinoma of the ovary in patients with disease that is refractory to both paclitaxel- and platinum-based chemotherapy regimens. Refractory disease is defined as disease that has progressed while on treatment, or within 6 months of completing treatment. DOXIL also is indicated for the treatment of AIDS-related Kaposi's sarcoma in patients with disease that has progressed on prior combination chemotherapy or in patients who are intolerant to such therapy.

These indications are based on objective tumor response rates. No results are available from controlled trials that demonstrate a clinical benefit resulting from this treatment, suc
