The availability of premium-priced branded agents prescribed in doublet, triplet, and quadruplet regimens, particularly Darzalex-based therapies, has had an impressive impact on the treatment of multiple myeloma. Although Bristol Myers Squibb’s Revlimid and Janssen / Takeda Pharmaceutical’s Velcade remain the cornerstones of multiple myeloma therapy, several agents entered the market in 2019 and 2020 (namely, Blenrep, Xpovio, and Sarclisa), and the late-phase pipeline remains buoyant. Indeed, immense clinical and commercial potential remains for therapies with improved efficacy and novel mechanisms of action that can fulfill the needs of underserved patient segments, such as smoldering multiple myeloma.
