  2. Abstract

This is the protocol for a review and there is no abstract. The objectives are as follows:

We will assess the effects of bortezomib treatment in comparison to other therapies, different doses, treatment administration and schedules of bortezomib, on overall survival (OS), progression-free survival (PFS), response rate (RR), health-related quality of life (HRQoL), adverse events (AE) and treatment-related death.
