FDA approves new treatment for refractory multiple myeloma
Today, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration granted accelerated approval to Xpovio (selinexor) tablets in combination with the corticosteroid dexamethasone for the treatment of adult patients with relapsed refractory multiple myeloma (RRMM) who have received at least four prior therapies and whose disease is resistant to several other forms of treatment,
The FDA granted accelerated approval to the nuclear transport inhibitor selinexor in combination with the corticosteroid dexamethasone for patients with relapsed or refractory multiple myeloma. Marketed as Xpovio, the drug is indicated for patients treated with at least 4 prior therapies whose disease has developed resistance to other treatments, including at least 2 proteasome inhibitors, 2 immunomodulatory agents, and an anti-CD38 monoclonal antibody.
SOCOS group Abstract The International Staging System (ISS) -calculated from serum albumin and beta-2 microglobulin (β2m)- is an established prognostic marker in multiple myeloma (MM), which has also been suggested to account for survival among general senior population. Our objective was to examine long-term survival of older women free of MM according to baseline ISS. The study included 230 community-dwelling healthy older women without known MM from the EPIDOS cohort (mean ± SD, 80.4 ± 3.4 years). Serum albumin and β2m were measured at baseline, and used to calculate the ISS a ...
(H. Lee Moffitt Cancer Center&Research Institute) A first-in-class drug recently granted accelerated approval by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for adult patients with heavily pretreated multiple myeloma has been the subject of study at Moffitt Cancer Center for years. Now, selinexor (XPOVIO , Karyopharm Therapeutics) used in combination with the corticosteroid dexamethasone will offer another option for patients with multiple myeloma who have exhausted the most common therapies for the disease.
We report a case of Nocardia farcinica ruptured intracranial mycotic aneurysm associated with bortezomib and corticosteroid treatment in a multiple myeloma patient. The patient was treated with trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole and moxifloxacin together with surgical repairment of intracranial mycotic aneurysm.
XPOVIO is a drug used to treat a form of blood cancer called multiple myeloma. It is to be used in combination with dexamethasone (a type of corticosteroid) in patients with no other treatment options whose cancer came back after, or did not respond to, at least four previous treatments.

Hui Zhou, Xiaoyan Fu, Qian Li and Ting Niu* Department of Hematology and Research Laboratory of Hematology, West China Hospital, Sichuan University, Chengdu, China Background: Immune checkpoint inhibition therapy with monoclonal antibody against programmed cell death protein 1 (PD-1), including nivolumab and pembrolizumab, has demonstrated powerful clinical efficacy in the treatment of advanced cancers. However, there is no evidence-based systematic review on the safety and efficacy of anti-PD-1 antibody in treating lymphoma. Methods: To evaluate the safety and efficacy of nivolumab/pembrolizumab, we analyzed clin...
Conclusions The concept of osteoimmunology is aging well, almost 20 years since the term was coined. This way of interpreting bone and the immune system has been steadily providing new insights about how the two of them operate and cooperate. As an example, the role of pro-inflammatory cytokines in promoting osteoclastogenesis, and the many parallelisms between immune cells and osteoclasts have proved crucial to understand the biology of these giant bone-eating cells. Intriguingly, the control mechanisms between bone and the immune system are complex, tightly interconnected, and involve many players. The underlying comple...
