After a brief market exit in November 2022, GSK appears to be giving its multiple myeloma treatment Blenrep a second chance, with company executives touting its “multi-blockbuster” potential in a virtual oncology-focused investor event on Monday.

A study showed GSK’s experimental drug Blenrep helped extend survival in patients with a type of blood cancer without symptoms worsening, marking a potential comeback for the drug after several setbacks.

Yesterday the company posted findings from an interim analysis of the Phase III DREAMM-7 trial showing that its antibody-drug conjugate Blenrep, when used in a three-drug regimen, led to a significant improvement in progression-free survival in patients with relapsed or refractory multiple myeloma.

The European health regulator cited recent data that did not confirm the blood cancer drug’s effectiveness.

GSK said on that its blood cancer drug Blenrep had reached a key goal in a late-stage trial, as the British drugmaker looks to bolster its oncology business after a series of setbacks.

Last November Blenrep failed to meet the main goal in a late-stage study that was designed to show it was better than an existing treatment on the market, leading GSK to stop selling the drug in the United States.

The company had said this month that Blenrep failed the main goal of a key study designed to show it was better than an existing treatment on the market, stoking fears that regulatory approval could be rescinded by the FDA.
