Dr Ralph Boccia - Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders, Bethesda, USA

Dr Boccia speaks with ecancer at the 16th International Myeloma Workshop about the CHAMPION-2 study.

The study evaluated different dose levels of carfilzomib in combination with fixed-dose cyclophosphamide and dexamethasone for the treatment of newly diagnosed multiple myeloma (MM).

Carfilzomib is a selective and irreversible second-generation proteasome inhibitor. 

Carfilzomib (56 mg/m2) twice weekly combined with cyclophosphamide and dexamethasone had manageable toxicity and was effective for treating patients with newly diagnosed MM.

Carfilzomib is also being trialled in relapsed/refractory myeloma, as discussed by Dr Siegel here.
