What is DARZALEX®?
DARZALEX® is a prescription medicine used to treat multiple myeloma:
- In combination with the medicines lenalidomide and dexamethasone or bortezomib and dexamethasone, in people who have received at least one prior medicine to treat multiple myeloma
- In combination with the medicines pomalidomide and dexamethasone in people who have received at least two prior medicines to treat multiple myeloma, including lenalidomide and a proteasome inhibitor
- Alone in people who have received at least three prior medicines to treat multiple myeloma, including a proteasome inhibitor and an immunomodulatory agent, or did not respond to a proteasome inhibitor and an immunomodulatory agent
It is not known if DARZALEX® is safe and effective in children.
DARZALEX® Is a CD38-Targeted Monoclonal Antibody
DARZALEX® is not chemotherapy. DARZALEX® is a monoclonal antibody that works in several ways. One way this monoclonal antibody works is by attaching itself to multiple myeloma cells in your body and directly killing them, and/or allowing your immune system to destroy them.
DARZALEX® targets and attaches to a protein called CD38, which is present on the surface of certain types of cells (eg, red blood cells) and is also present in high numbers on multiple myeloma cells. Since DARZALEX® targets the CD38 protein, it may also affect other cells with this protein on their surface.
