The Thousand Oaks, Calif., biotechnology company said the study met its main endpoint of progression-free survival, resulting in a 37% reduction in the risk of disease progression or death in patients with relapsed or refractory multiple myeloma.
Amgen said the combination also showed efficacy in key secondary endpoints, including overall response rate and overall survival.
