Dr Siegel talks to ecancer at the 16th International Myeloma Workshop about the ASPIRE trial, looking at carfilzomib, lenalidomide, and dexamethasone for relapsed multiple myeloma.
He also discusses the ENDEAVOUR trial looking at carfilzomib in combination with low-dose dexamethasone (Kd), versus bortezomib with low-dose dexamethasone (Vd) in patients whose multiple myeloma has relapsed after at least one, but not more than three prior therapeutic regimens.
Since presentation at ASH 2015 the data from both trials has matured. Consistent with the primary analyses, the results show that incorporation of carfilzomib into treatment regimens in patients with relapsed or refractory multiple myeloma results in clinically meaningful improvements in progression free survival and a favourable benefit–risk profile.

Carfilzomib is also being trialled combination therapies for for newly diagnosed myeloma, as discussed by Dr Boccia here.
