Relapsed/Refractory Multiple Myeloma Trial Updates From ASCO 2023

Commentary
Podcast

Experts from Mayo Clinic and The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center discuss results from multiple myeloma trials presented at the 2023 American Society of Clinical Oncology Annual Meeting and how they may apply to clinical practice.

In a Twitter Spaces edition of the Oncology-On-The-Go podcast, Rafael Fonseca, MD and Krina Patel, MD, MSc spoke with CancerNetwork® about how key findings from multiple myeloma trials presented at the 2023 American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Annual Meeting may impact the treatment paradigm.

Fonseca, director of Innovation and Transformation Relationships at the Mayo Clinic in Phoenix, Arizona and Patel, an associate professor in the Department of Lymphoma/Myeloma in the Division of Cancer Medicine at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, detailed results from the phase 1b RedirecTT-1 trial (NCT04586426) assessing teclistamab-cqyv (Tecvayli) plus talquetamab in those with relapsed/refractory multiple myeloma.

In the RedirectTT-1 trial, investigators reported an objective response rate (ORR) of 86.6% across all dose levels and 96.3% at the recommended phase 2 dose.1 Additionally, the combined complete response (CR) or stringent CR rate was 40.2% and 40.7% at each respective dose level.

Another trial of interest that Fonseca and Patel discussed included the phase 2 LINKER-MM1 trial (NCT03761108), evaluating linvoseltamab (REGN5458) in relapsed/refractory multiple myeloma. In the study, the agent elicited an ORR of 71% at the 200 mg dose level.2 Moreover, the CR rate was 14%, the very good partial response (PR) rate was 29%, and the PR rate was 12%. The estimated 6-month progression-free survival (PFS) rate among patients receiving the regimen was 72.7%.

Fonseca and Patel also discussed results from the phase 3 CARTITUDE-4 trial (NCT04181827), comparing ciltacabtagene autoleucel (cilta-cel; Carvykti) with standard of care in lenalidomide (Revlimid)-refractory multiple myeloma. In patients receiving cilta-cel, the median PFS was not reached (NR, 95% CI, 22.8 months-not estimable [NE]) vs 11.8 months (95% CI, 9.7-13.8) among those receiving standard of care.3,4 The 12-month PFS rate in each respective arm was 76% vs 49%.
