Highly Refractory Myeloma Has Deep and Durable Responses With Ide-cel

December 05, 2020

The objective response rate (ORR) in the entire treated patient population (N = 62) was 75.8% with a rate of complete response (CR) or greater of 38.7%.

The most common any-grade and grade 3/4 adverse effects observed were cytopenias. Neutropenia of any grade occurred in 91.9% of patients, anemia in 75.8%, thrombocytopenia in 74.2%, leukopenia in 64.5%, and lymphopenia in 37.1%. Corresponding rates of grade 3/4 cytopenias were 88.7%, 56.5%, 56.5%, 61.3%, and 35.5%, respectively. In patients without blood count recovery within 1 month, median recovery times for neutropenia and thrombocytopenia were 1.9 months and 2.2 months, respectively.
