Selinexor combined with weekly bortezomib (Velcade) and low-dose dexamethasone (Vd) produced rapid and durable responses in a dose escalation/expansion trial of patients with relapsed/refractory multiple myeloma (RRMM).

Based on tolerability and efficacy, the recommended phase II dose of selinexor plus Vd is selinexor at 100 mg, bortezomib at 1.3 mg/m2, and dexamethasone at 40 mg, all weekly. These doses represent 40% less bortezomib and 25% less dexamethasone compared with the standard approved twice weekly schedule of Vd, Bahlis said.

Selinexor in combination with weekly low dose bortezomib and dexamethasone (SVd) induces a high response rate with durable responses in patients with refractory multiple myeloma (MM).
