Schema di trattamento: 

Melflufen 40 mg Day 1 and dexamethasone 40 mg (reduced dose for patients 75 years or older) on Days 1, 8, 15 and 22 of each 28-day cycle

Trattamento sperimentale: 


Trattamento di controllo: 


Obiettivi primari dello studio: 

Overall Response Rate (ORR) [Time Frame: From date of response until the date of first documented progression or date of death from any cause, whichever came first, assessed up to 24 months]

The overall response rate (ORR) will be estimated as the proportion of patients in each group who achieve sCR, CR, VGPR, or PR as their best response
