A Type II variation application has been submitted to the European Medicines Agency for the 4-drug regimen of daratumumab (Darzalex), bortezomib (Velcade), thalidomide (Thalomid), and dexamethasone as a treatment for patients with newly diagnosed multiple myeloma who are eligible to undergo autologous stem cell transplant (ASCT).1

This application announcement follows another sBLA submission, also in March 2019, for daratumumab in combination with lenalidomide (Revlimid) and dexamethasone as a treatment for patients with newly diagnosed multiple myeloma who are ineligible for ASCT.
