CHMP recommends approval of Nexpovio for multiple myeloma.- Karyopharm Therapeutics

Published:31st Jan 2021
Karyopharm Therapeutics announced the European Medicines Agency's (EMA) Committee for Medicinal Products for Human Use (CHMP) has adopted a positive opinion recommending the conditional approval for Nexpovio (selinexor) in combination with dexamethasone for the treatment of multiple myeloma in adult patients who have received at least four prior therapies and whose disease is refractory to at least two proteasome inhibitors, two immunomodulatory agents, and an anti-CD38 monoclonal antibody, and who have demonstrated disease progression on the last therapy. The MAA is supported by data from the Phase IIb STORM study which evaluated selinexor in patients with heavily pretreated, triple class refractory multiple myeloma and published in the New England Journal of Medicine (Chari, et al.) in August 2019. Karyopharm intends to submit a second regulatory filing to the EMA (Type II variation) by April 2021 based on the data from the confirmatory Phase III BOSTON study, which evaluated once-weekly Nexpovio in combination with once-weekly Velcade and low-dose dexamethasone in patients with multiple myeloma after at least one prior therapy with the goal of further expanding the global reach of Nexpovio to additional patients in need of new treatment options.
