Two separate early-phase clinical trials exploring daratumumab (Darzalex) in combination with either a PD-1 inhibitor for multiple myeloma or a PD-L1 inhibitor for non–small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) were terminated following a planned interim analysis, according to a statement from Genmab, the company codeveloping daratumumab with Janssen.

Another phase II study was exploring durvalumab (Imfinzi) and daratumumab for multiple myeloma; however, this trial was terminated shortly following the mandated partial hold in September 2017. This single-arm trial, however, was stopped due to a lack of efficacy, according to its listing (NCT03000452).
