Prof Katja Weisel speaks to ecancer about the updated interim analysis of the GMMG-Concept trial investigating isatuximab, carfilzomib, lenalidomide and dexamethasone (ISA-KRD) in frontline treatment of high-risk multiple myeloma.
Initially, she explains the rationale and methodology of this trial. Prof Weisel then discusses the results. With a best overall response rate of 100% during quadruplet induction treatment, this trial reported an update of the interim analysis for progression-free survival of the first 50 patients in the CONCEPT trial. These solely high-risk newly diagnosed MM patients had an encouraging PFS rate of 79.6% and 75.5% after 12- and 24-months. The data underlines the high potency of quadruplet treatment with Isa-KRd especially, in patients with HR disease.
Prof Weisel mentions the future impact of the results from this study on the treatment of multiple myeloma.
