A new drug called Selinexor is now being tested in clinical trials for heavily pretreated multiple myeloma patients. Patients who were previously exposed to IMiDs (immunomodulators like lenalidomide or pomalidomide) or proteasome inhibitors (bortezomib, cartilzomib) and have been refractory to both an IMiD and proteasome inhibitor can join this trial. Refractory means that patients have stopped responding to a particular drug. This Phase II trial uses both selinexor and low-dose dexamethasone twice weekly and is open in 25 site locations.
