Ixazomib (Ninlaro) in combination with dexamethasone did not demonstrate a significant improvement in overall hematologic response compared with standard therapy in patients with relapsed/refractory systemic light-chain (AL) amyloidosis, missing one of two primary endpoints in the phase III TOURMALINE-AL1 trial and leading to discontinuation of the study.1
Ixazomib is currently approved by the FDA in combination with lenalidomide and dexamethasone for the treatment of patients with multiple myeloma who have received ≥1 prior therapy.
