Selinexor (Xpovio®) is a first-in-class, oral Selective Inhibitor of Nuclear Export (SINE) compound. Xpovio blocks the nuclear export of tumor suppressor, growth regulatory and anti-inflammatory proteins, leading to accumulation of these proteins in the nucleus and enhancing their anti-cancer activity in the cell. The forced nuclear retention of these proteins can counteract a multitude of the oncogenic pathways that, unchecked, allow cancer cells with severe DNA damage to continue to grow and divide in an unrestrained fashion.
Selinexor is an oral drug approved for use in combination with dexamethasone by relapsed or refractory myeloma patients who have received at least 4 prior therapies and who are resistant to at least 2 proteasome inhibitors, at least 2 immunomodulatory drugs, and to an anti-CD38 monoclonal antibody.

Karyopharm Therapeutics Inc., a clinical-stage pharmaceutical company, today announced that updated clinical data from the Phase 2b STORM (Selinexor Treatment of Refractory Myeloma) study evaluating selinexor, the Company’s lead, oral Selective Inhibitor of Nuclear Export (SINE) compound, in heavily pretreated patients with penta-refractory multiple myeloma, were presented during an oral session at the Society of Hematologic Oncology (SOHO) 2018 Annual Meeting on September 13, 2018, in Houston. Sundar Jagannath, MD, Director of the Multiple Myeloma Program, Professor of Medicine (Hematology and Medical Oncology) at Tisch Cancer Institute at Mount Sinai School of Medicine, and principal investigator of the STORM study, presented the data in a session entitled, “Phase 2b Results of the STORM Study: Oral Selinexor plus Low Dose Dexamethasone (Sd) in Patients with Penta-Refractory Myeloma.”
“The additional Phase 2b clinical results presented today are very encouraging for the patients suffering from penta-refractory multiple myeloma and their families. Most notably, the overall response rate (ORR) for patients treated with oral selinexor and dexamethasone (dex; Sd) was 26.2% with median duration of response (DOR) of 4.4 months based on the Independent Review Committee (IRC) assessment, along with a median overall survival (OS) across the entire study of 8.6 months,” said Dr. Jagannath. “Of particular significance, for the nearly 40% of patients who had a minimal response (MR) or better, the median survival was 15.6 months, which provided the opportunity for a meaningful clinical benefit for patients on the STORM study with advanced penta-refractory myeloma that is difficult to treat.”
