Blenrep is a cancer medicine used to treat multiple myeloma (a cancer of the bone marrow). It is given to adults who have received at least four previous treatments and whose disease does not respond to treatment with at least one proteasome inhibitor, one immunomodulatory agent, and an anti-CD38 monoclonal antibody (types of cancer medicines), and whose cancer has worsened since receiving the last treatment.
Multiple myeloma is rare, and Blenrep was designated an ‘orphan medicine’ (a medicine used in rare diseases) on 16 October 2017.
Blenrep contains the active substance belantamab mafodotin.
