Patients with multiple myeloma who relapsed following allogeneic stem cell transplantation (SCT) and also failed several posttransplant therapies demonstrated a strong response to daratumumab (Darzalex) salvage therapy, according to findings presented at the 2019 European Society for Blood and Marrow Transplantation Annual Meeting.
Further research is needed to investigate the role of daratumumab in combination with immunomodulatory agents or proteasome inhibitors in the second-line setting, the authors concluded in their poster.
