Dr. Gordan said, “Clinical trials are integral to ongoing innovations and advancements in cancer treatment. Increasingly, our precision oncology insights and real-world evidence platform are enhancing our studies and informing clinical decisions.”

MAIA is an ongoing phase 3 trial that enrolled patients, beginning in 2015 through 2017 at 176 hospitals in 14 countries across North America, Europe, the Middle East, and the Asia-Pacific region. Eligible patients were age 18 or older, newly diagnosed with multiple myeloma, and ineligible for high-dose chemotherapy with autologous stem-cell transplantation because of their age or comorbidities. Results of the study support the frontline use of daratumumab plus lenalidomide and dexamethasone (Darzalex®) for patients with multiple myeloma who are ineligible for transplantation, as it increased overall survival and progression-free survival. The second most common hematologic malignancy in the U.S., multiple myeloma is a rare, incurable blood cancer that affects plasma cells found in bone marrow.
