The OncLive Multiple Myeloma condition center page is a comprehensive resource for clinical news and expert insights on multiple myeloma and how to treat patients with monoclonal antibodies, proteasome inhibitors, bispecific T-cell engagers, immunomodulatory agents, CAR T-cell therapy, and more. This page features news articles, interviews in written and video format, and podcasts that focus on unmet needs, treatment advances, and ongoing research in multiple myeloma.
Teclistamab demonstrated superiority over physician’s choice of therapy for overall survival, progression-free survival, and time to next treatment in patients with relapsed/refractory multiple myeloma.
The European Medicines Agency's Committee for Medicinal Products for Human Use has unanimously recommended full marketing authorization approval of melphalan flufenamide for patients with triple-class refractory multiple myeloma.
Monique Minnema, MD, discusses the rationale of the MonumenTAL-1 trial examining talquetamab in multiple myeloma, the safety and efficacy reported thus far with the bispecific antibody, and next steps for further exploration.
A single infusion of the CAR T-cell therapy ciltacabtagene autoleucel produced deep and durable responses in patients with relapsed/refractory multiple myeloma with a manageable toxicity profile, according to long-term follow-up data of the phase 1b/2 CARTITUDE-1 trial.
Closing out their discussion on bispecifics in multiple myeloma, expert hematologist-oncologists share practical advice for community physicians alongside their hopes for the future.
Luciano Costa, MD, and Adriana Rossi, MD, consider the possibility of earlier-line bispecific and CAR T-cell therapies in multiple myeloma.
The bispecific antibody REGN5458 elicited rapid responses that were further characterized by their depth, durability, and low incidence of cytokine release syndrome in patients with relapsed/refractory multiple myeloma.
The combination of talquetamab and daratumumab led to early onset and durable responses that deepened over time in patients with heavily pretreated multiple myeloma, most of whom were anti-CD38 refractory, according to findings from the phase 1b TRIMM-2 study.
ARI0002H, a BCMA-directed CAR T-cell therapy, achieved promising response rates in patients with relapsed/refractory multiple myeloma, according to findings from a phase 1/2 trial.
Comprehensive discussion on the MonumenTAL-1 trial of talquetamab, a GPRC5D- and CD3-targeted agent, in the setting of relapsed/refractory multiple myeloma.
Induction therapy with the quadruplet regimen of daratumumab, carfilzomib, lenalidomide, and dexamethasone appears to be feasible in patients with high-risk, newly diagnosed multiple myeloma who are eligible for transplant, displaying safety benefits and responses.
Ixazomib plus daratumumab without dexamethasone showed a positive efficacy profile for elderly frail patients with relapsed/refractory multiple myeloma, according to results of the phase 2 IFM 2018-02 study.
Daratumumab plus induction/consolidation lenalidomide, bortezomib, and dexamethasone elicited higher minimal residual disease-negativity rates vs the RVd combination alone in patients with transplant-eligible newly diagnosed multiple myeloma, including those in high-risk subgroups.
The combination of lenalidomide (Revlimid), bortezomib, and dexamethasone (RVd) plus autologous stem cell transplant as initial therapy followed by lenalidomide maintenance demonstrated a significant improvement in progression-free survival vs RVd alone followed by lenalidomide maintenance in patients with newly diagnosed multiple myeloma.
