General information

Class/mechanism: Anti-CD38 antibody, human monoclonal IgG1 kappa. Daratumumab binds to CD38 and causes apoptosis in CD38-expressing cells via Fc mediated cross-linking, complement-dependent cytotoxicity (CDC), antibody-dependent cell mediated cytotoxicity (ADCC), and antibody dependent cellular phagocytosis (ADCP). CD38 is present on the cell surface of multiple myeloma (MM), plasma leukemia, and natural killer (NK) cells.[1][2][3]
Route: SC

For conciseness and simplicity, HemOnc.org currently will focus on treatment regimens and not list information such as: renal/hepatic dose adjustments, metabolism (including CYP450), excretion, monitoring parameters (although this will be considered for checklists), or manufacturer. Instead, for the most current information, please refer to your preferred pharmacopeias such as Micromedex, Lexicomp, UpToDate (courtesy of Lexicomp), or the prescribing information.[1]
