Adding daratumumab (Darzalex) to carfilzomib (Kyprolis) and dexamethasone (DKd) improved progression-free survival (PFS) in patients with relapsed/refractory multiple myeloma, according to topline findings from the phase III CANDOR study.1
The investigators considered the regimen to be well tolerated. Grade 3/4 TEAEs occurring most frequently included thrombocytopenia (31%), lymphopenia (24%), anemia (21%), and neutropenia (21%).
