New treatment for patients with multiple myeloma
The European Medicines Agency (EMA) has recommended granting a conditional marketing authorisation for Darzalex (daratumumab) for the treatment of adults with relapsed and refractory multiple myeloma. Darzalex is to be used in patients whose previous treatment included a proteasome inhibitor and an immunomodulatory agent (other types of cancer medicines) and whose disease worsened after treatment.
Darzalex is a monoclonal antibody that works by activating the body’s immune system to attack and kill multiple myeloma cells.
