The BOSTON trial is a phase 3 study comparing weekly oral selinexor + bortezomib + low-dose dexamethasone (SVd) versus bortezomib (twice weekly) + low-dose dexamethasone (Vd) in patients with relapsed or refractory multiple myeloma.
Patients whose myeloma progresses on the Vd arm may be eligible to “cross over” onto the SVd arm.
Selinexor is the first in a new class of drugs being investigated as a treatment for myeloma. It belongs to a class of drug called selective inhibitor of nuclear export (SINE) and works by disrupting survival mechanisms in myeloma cells. Watch the video below to hear David Siegel, MD, PhD (John Theurer Cancer Center) explain Selinexor as a myeloma therapy.
