There are still options for you after relapse

When you have multiple myeloma, the medicines that were working before can stop working, and you can experience relapse. When you try a medicine but don’t get a response, this means your multiple myeloma is refractory to that medicine.

There are still ways to fight relapsed or refractory multiple myeloma, including trying a different medicine from the kinds you have already tried.

If your multiple myeloma is refractory or relapsed, ask your healthcare provider if TECVAYLI® is right for youTECVAYLI® is for adults with multiple myeloma whose cancer has come back or did not respond to treatment after having received at least 4 prior treatment regimens, including:

  • Green bullet pointa proteasome inhibitor
  • Green bullet pointan immunomodulatory agent
  • Green bullet pointan anti-CD38 monoclonal antibody

TECVAYLI® was approved based on patient responses. There are ongoing studies to confirm the clinical benefit of TECVAYLI®. It is not known if TECVAYLI® is safe and effective in children.
