Dr Robert Rifkin speaks to ecancer at the 2019 ASH meeting in Orlando about the updated results of the LYRA study, which examined the effect of daratumumab maintenance therapy, following daratumumab in combination with cyclophosphamide, bortezomib, and dexamethasone (CyBorD) for the treatment of multiple myeloma (MM).

Dr Rifkin gives an update on the findings of this study, in which maintenance with daratumumab monotherapy increased the complete response rate in patients with newly diagnosed and relapsed multiple myeloma. This was also associated with durable progression-free and overall survival.
