Jerome Lipper Multiple Myeloma Center
In its first clinical trial, a breakthrough antibody therapy produced at least partial remissions in a third of patients with multiple myeloma who had exhausted multiple prior treatments, investigators at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and other organizations report today online in the New England Journal of Medicine. The results of the trial - a combined phase 1 and 2 study - strongly support testing of the drug in a larger group of patients in both phase 2 and 3 trials, the authors say. "The treatment of multiple myeloma has improved significantly in recent years with the introduction of therapies such as proteasome inhibitors and potent immuno-modulatory agents," said the paper's senior author and lead investigator, Paul Richardson, MD, clinical program leader and director of clinical research at Dana-Farber's Jerome Lipper Multiple Myeloma Center, and the R.J. Corman professor at Harvard Medical School. The new study involved 72 patients, all of whom had received at least two prior lines of therapy and whose disease had relapsed and no longer responded to treatment.
The FDA has seen fit to approve Bristol-Myers Squibb's Empliciti intravenous injection in combination with pomalidomide and dexamethasone for the treatment of multiple myeloma, it has emerged. The decision came off the back of Phase 2 data which showed that the therapy doubled progression-free survival and overall response rate compared to pomalidomide and dexamethasone alone in relapsed or refractory multiple myeloma. "Despite remarkable recent innovations with novel therapies for the treatment of multiple myeloma, many patients still face poor outcomes, and particularly in the relapsed and relapsed, refractory setting," said Dr Paul Richardson, Clinical Program Leader and Director of Clinical Research of the Jerome Lipper Multiple Myeloma Center at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. Today's approval reinforces the importance of Immuno-Oncology in blood cancers and expands the role of Empliciti to address the needs of relapsed or refractory multiple myeloma patients."
