2021 Year in Review - Multiple Myeloma

In 2022, the COVID-19 pandemic continues to impact the practice of medicine and the dissemination of treatment advances presented in scientific forums. Read More ›

Longer follow-up results of the phase 2 GRIFFIN trial demonstrated that the addition of daratumumab to RVd induction/consolidation in conjunction with ASCT, followed by 24 months of daratumumab-lenalidomide maintenance resulted in deep and durable responses, including stringent CR and MRD negativity rates, in patients with transplant-eligible NDMM.

Results of the 18-month follow-up of the phase 1b/2 CARTITUDE-1 trial indicated that a single infusion of cilta-cel produced early, deep, and durable responses in heavily pretreated patients with RRMM, with manageable toxicity. Read More ›

These results indicate that quadruplet induction therapy with daratumumab plus carfilzomib, lenalidomide, and dexamethasone (D-KRd); ASCT; and MRD response–adapted D-KRd consolidation therapy yielded high MRD negativity rates in patients with NDMM. Read More ›

Longer-term data from the DREAMM-2 trial confirmed the sustained clinical activity of the anti–B-cell maturation antigen antibody–drug conjugate belantamab mafodotin in heavily pretreated patients with RRMM, with no emergence of new safety signals. Read More ›

The International Myeloma Working Group developed evidence-based clinical practice recommendations for the treatment of RRMM, with the goal to help guide real-world clinical practice and improve patient outcomes. Read More ›

Initial primary analysis results of the ongoing phase 3 GMMG-HD7 trial demonstrated that the addition of isa­tuximab to the standard-of-care RVd regimen was associated with superior MRD negativity rates after induction, and the regimen was not accompanied by emergence of new safety signals or early discontinuation.

In the CARTITUDE-2 cohort A that included patients with MM who had received 1 to 3 previous lines of therapy and were lenalidomide-refractory, a single infusion of cilta-cel CAR T-cell therapy produced early and deep responses, with a manageable safety profile. Read More ›

Interim analysis results of the phase 3 MAIA trial demonstrated that frontline daratumumab plus lenalidomide/dexamethasone provided OS benefit compared with lenalidomide/dexamethasone in patients with NDMM ineligible for stem-cell transplantation. Read More ›

Results of the CARDAMON trial indicate that, although carfilzomib maintenance was feasible and yielded higher MRD negativity rates at 6 months with ASCT than with consolidation, it was associated with a higher incidence of grade ≥3 adverse events and discontinuations after ASCT. Read More ›
