Daratumumab is the first anti-CD38 targeting monoclonal antibody approved as monotherapy in multiply relapsed myeloma patients who progressed following prior treatment with proteasome inhibitors (PIs) and immunomodulatory agents (IMiDs). We present real world data on the efficacy of single agent daratumumab in a cohort of 55 multiply relapsed patients treated in the UK.The median age was 72 years, the majority (96%) received ≥ 3 previous lines of treatment; 54.5% were PI-refractory, 76.4% were IMiD-refractory and 47.2% were double refractory; 20% of patients had high-risk (HR) disease.The overall response rate was 49%. After a median follow up of 9.2 months, the median progression-free survival (PFS) for the total cohort was 5.1 months. Patients who achieved a partial response or better (≥PR) demonstrated a significantly longer PFS compared to those with
