Multiple Myeloma

The past week in oncology-related news includes shortages of crucial pediatric cancer drug, results of a study of racial disparities in multiple myeloma, and new drug on the horizon for HER2 metastatic breast cancer.
On September 26, 2019, the FDA approved daratumumab (Darzalex; Janssen) in combination with bortezomib, thalidomide, and dexamethasone for the treatment of newly diagnosed patients with multiple myeloma who are eligible for autologous stem-cell transplant (ASCT). The FDA granted this application priority review.
Researchers report promising findings for a novel quad regimen, D-RVd, compared with RVd in patients with newly diagnosed multiple myeloma (NDMM) who are eligible for autologous stem-cell transplant.
A retrospective analysis suggests improved survival outcomes with selinexor plus dexamethasone compared with standard treatments in triple-class relapsed or refractory multiple myeloma (RRMM).
New data suggest that combinations using a subcutaneous (SC) co-formulation of daratumumab with recombinant human hyaluronidase have similar clinical activity and safety as intravenous daratumumab in patients with newly diagnosed multiple myeloma (MM).
This first-in-human study shows that AMG 420, a BiTE antibody that directs the immune system to target B-cell maturation antigen (BCMA) on the tumor cell and CD3 on T-cells, may be effective and safe.
Researchers report positive data for patients with relapsed or refractory multiple myeloma (RRMM) and extramedullary disease in the phase 2 HORIZON study of melflufen plus dexamethasone.
This phase 1 study demonstrates that CT053, a B-cell maturation antigen (BCMA)-specific chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T-cell product, is effective and safe in patients with multiply relapsed multiple myeloma (MM).
This study reports successful administration of intravenous daratumumab over 90 minutes for patients with relapsed or refractory multiple myeloma (RRMM).
Navigating patients through the complexities of multiple myeloma can be very challenging – yet very rewarding.
