What is Pepaxto?

Pepaxto is an FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) approved medication manufactured by Oncopeptides AB. It is classed as an alkylating agent and used with dexamethasone, for the treatment of adult patients with relapsed or refractory multiple myeloma (RRMM) who have already had at least four prior lines of therapy and whose disease is refractory to at least one proteasome inhibitor, one immunomodulatory agent, and one CD38-directed monoclonal antibody.

This indication is approved under accelerated approval based on data from the Horizon study, a multicenter, single-arm trial to determine the safety and efficacy of Pepaxto in patients with RRMM. Continued approval may depend upon verification and description of clinical benefits in confirmatory trials.

Pepaxto is available in injection form, in the following doses: 20 mg melphalan flufenamide as a lyophilized powder in a single-dose vial.
