The combination of daratumumab (Darzalex), selinexor, and dexamethasone continued to demonstrate deep and durable responses in patients with multiple myeloma who have previously received ≥3 lines of therapy, which include an immunomodulatory (IMiD) agent and a proteasome inhibitor, according to updated phase Ib findings presented at the 2018 ASH Annual Meeting.
, Cristina Gasparetto, MD, professor of medicine and director of the myeloma program at Duke Cancer Institute, discussed the findings from this trial and how the results compare to data from the STORM trial.
OncLive: Can you give an overview of this trial?
: This was a combination of selinexor, daratumumab, and dexamethasone. This combination is actually one of the arms of the STORM study. Selinexor is an oral selective inhibitor of exportin 1 (XPO1), which is the major nuclear export for many tumor suppressing proteins, oncoproteins, and glucocorticoid receptors. Selinexor has been tested in combination with low-dose dexamethasone and yields an overall response of about 26% in heavily pretreated patients.
