In December 2020, the FDA approved Xpovio (selinexor), for use in combination with the proteasome inhibitor Velcade (bortezomib) and the steroid dexamethasone, for the treatment of adults with multiple myeloma who have received at least 1 previous therapy. Xpovio was previously approved for several types of lymphoma.
Adrug called Blenrep (belantamab mafodotin-blmf) was recently approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for adult patients with relapsed or refractory multiple myeloma who have received at least 4 prior therapies (including an anti-CD38 monoclonal antibody, a proteasome inhibitor, and an immunomodulatory agent).
In August 2020, the FDA approved the first BCMA-directed antibody, Blenrep, for the treatment of adults with multiple myeloma that progressed after 4 or more previous therapies. This drug represents a new approach to the treatment of multiple myeloma.
