Phase 3 ELOQUENT-2 study: Elotuzumab plus lenalidomide/dexamethasone vs Ld in relapsed/refractory multiple myeloma (RRMM)
Dr. Sagar Lonial Discusses the Phase 3 ELOQUENT-2 Study
Background: Elotuzumab, an immunostimulatory monoclonal antibody, has a dual mechanism of action: directly activating natural killer (NK) cells and tagging myeloma cells for recognition/death via antibody-dependent cell-mediated cytotoxicity. In a 3-y FU, ELOQUENT-2 (NCT01239797) showed a sustained 27% reduction in risk of disease progression/death for ELd vs Ld and overall survival (OS) trend in favor of ELd (Dimopoulos et al, ASH 2015). Here we present extended 4-y FU data (median FU 46 mo).
