Handling and administration demonstration & information
A range of materials, including a practical guide, in-clinic poster and patient materials
See how the recombinant human hyaluronidase PH20 (rHuPH20; ENHANZE® drug delivery technology) added to DARZALEX® facilitates the subcutaneous administration of the drug
PAVO is a phase 1b, open-label, multicentre, dose-finding, proof-of-concept study in RRMM patients with ≥2 prior lines of treatment who have not received anti-CD38 therapy.
In Part 1 of the study, patients received 28-day cycles of daratumumab 1,200 mg + rHuPH20 30,000 U (in 60 mL; Group 1) or daratumumab 1,800 mg + rHuPH20 45,000 U (in 90 mL; Group 2) following the approved IV monotherapy dosing schedule (QW in Cycles 1 and 2, Q2W in Cycles 3 through 6, and Q4W thereafter).
In Part 2 of the study, patients received a concentrated co-formulation of the selected daratumumab (1,800 mg) and rHuPH20 (30,000 U in 15 mL) dose in a single, pre-mixed vial.
|Slower systemic absorption with SC vs. IV|
|Maximum Ctrough is similar or higher following 1,800 mg SC compared with 16 mg/kg IV|
|Cmax at Q4W dosing – 1,800 mg SC is similar to 16 mg/kg IV overall|
|Clinical response rates similar to IV|
DARZALEX® SC was well tolerated with an AE profile consistent with DARZALEX® IV
COLUMBA is a phase 3, randomised, open-label, active-controlled, multicentre non-inferiority study of DARZALEX® SC versus DARZALEX® IV in patients with heavily pre-treated RRMM. N=522*
* After at least 3 prior lines of therapy, including a proteasome inhibitor and an immunomodulatory drug.
NEW DATA COLUMBA: Primary and final analysis of Part 1 of the study
*DARZALEX® SC vs. DARZALEX® IV at median follow-up of 13.7 months.
DARZALEX® SC offers a similar safety profile with fewer and less severe IRRs vs. DARZALEX® IV
Injection-site reactions (ISRs) occurred in 7% of DARZALEX® SC patients (all Grade 1/2)
PLEIADES is a phase 2, multicentre, open-label study of DARZALEX® SC in combination with standard of care. N=199
