DREAMM-2 study: Single-agent belantamab mafodotin (GSK2857916) in patients with R/R multiple myeloma refractory to PI, IMiD, and anti-CD38 mAb

Pivotal DREAMM-2 study: Single-agent belantamab mafodotin (GSK2857916) in patients with relapsed/refractory multiple myeloma (RRMM) refractory to proteasome inhibitors (PIs), immunomodulatory agents, and refractory and/or intolerant to anti-CD38 monoclonal antibodies (mAbs).


Abstract No : 8536

Abstract Type : Poster Discussion Session

Indication : Multiple Myeloma

Intervention : Belantamab mafodotin

Company : GlaxoSmithKline

Technology : BCMA Inhibitor


Results:

ORR was 31% in the 2.5 mg/kg (19% with ≥very good partial responses [VGPR]) and 35% (24% with ≥VGPR) in the 3.4 mg/kg groups (Table). Duration of response (DoR) was not reached (NR) in the 2.5 mg/kg and 6.2 months in the 3.4 mg/kg groups; 1-year overall survival (OS) estimate was 53%. Common Grade 3/4 AEs (> 10% in either group) were keratopathy (2.5: 29%; 3.5: 24%), thrombocytopenia (2.5: 21%; 3.4: 32%), anemia (2.5: 20%; 3.4: 27%), pneumonia (2.5: 6%; 3.4: 13%), and neutropenia (2.5: 11%; 3.4: 16%). AEs were managed with dose delays (2.5: 54%; 3.4: 62%) and reductions (2.5: 34%; 3.4: 43%); discontinuations due to AEs were uncommon (2.5: 9%; 3.4: 12%).


Conclusion:

Single-agent belantamab mafodotin was well-tolerated, and clinically meaningful responses were sustained despite dose modifications with longer followup. Funding: GlaxoSmithKline (205678).

Commentary:

Belantamab mafodotin (GSK2857916) sustained clinically meaningful deep responses and was well tolerated in patients with heavily pretreated RRMM. Being the first in class BCMA targeting ADC gives it a significant advantage over its competitors
