Ensuring Transfusion Safety for Multiple Myeloma Patients Receiving Anti-CD38 Monoclonal Antibody Therapy

Monoclonal antibody (mAb) therapy has shown promise for patients with relapsed multiple myeloma (MM), a discovery leading to the FDA’s 2015 approval of two mAbs, elotuzumab (anti-SLAMF7) and daratumumab (anti-CD38), for use in relapsed MM patients. This marks the first approved use of mAbs in MM treatment—and brings new challenges for clinicians who manage patients with MM. It was recently observed that use of anti-CD38 mAb therapy in MM patients yielded false-positives in routine blood...
