FDA Approves Kyprolis (carfilzomib) in Combination with Darzalex and Dexamethasone for Relapsed or Refractory Myeloma
As IMF Chief Medical Officer Joseph Mikhael, MD, explains, "This is an important approval for myeloma patients. The combination uses two potent myeloma agents from separate classes together early in relapsed myeloma. As most patients relapse when on lenalidomide maintenance therapy, carfilzomib plus daratumumab can overcome lenalidomide resistance in a conveniently delivered and continuous manner to keep patients in remission. The two dosing strategies of weekly, or twice-weekly carfilzomib, allow for flexibility for patients."

And This Too Shall Pass….
Once again, the IMF is hosting a raffle for a 10-day stay at the Villa Ono Oasis in historic Kailua-Kona, Hawaii.
