The study drug Ibrutinib (PCI-32765 or IMBRUVICA®) is a type of drug called a kinase inhibitor. Kinases are proteins that help cells live and grow. The specific kinase blocked by ibrutinib is believed to help blood cancer cells live and grow. By inhibiting the activity of this specific kinase, it is possible that ibrutinib may kill the cancer cells or stop them from growing. Ibrutinib has been approved by the U.S FDA for the treatment of mantle cell lymphoma, chronic lymphocytic leukemia and CLL in patients with 17p deletion

Criteria:

To Be Eligible For This Study, Patients Must Have Multiple Myeloma
