Multiple Myeloma – Current Treatment – Detailed, Expanded Analysis (US)

Multiple myeloma is a hematologic malignancy that arises from an overproduction of plasma cells in the bone marrow. In patients with active disease, immunomodulatory drugs (e.g., Revlimid, Pomalyst) and proteasome inhibitors (e.g., Velcade, Kyprolis, Ninlaro) remain the mainstays of treatment; triplet regimens combining these two classes plus dexamethasone have become the standard of care in the first-line setting and are usually followed by single-agent maintenance until disease progression. Darzalex, the first anti-CD38 antibody to enter the multiple myeloma market, has experienced multiple label expansions that have greatly increased its use as part of combination therapy in the first-line and R/R settings. Following Darzalex’s approval, other targeted agents such as Sarclisa and Empliciti entered the multiple myeloma market and are now niche players in the R/R armamentarium. The latter-line setting has witnessed further approvals, including agents such as CAR T-cell therapies (Abecma and Carvykti) and bispecific antibodies (Tecvayli), providing hematologist-oncologists with effective options for the most heavily treated patients.
