Empliciti is a medicine for treating multiple myeloma (a cancer of the bone marrow). It is used together with two other medicines (lenalidomide and dexamethasone) and is given to adults who have received at least one previous cancer treatment.
Empliciti is also used together with the medicines pomalidomide and dexamethasone to treat multiple myeloma that was previously treated with at least two other treatments but the cancer had come back. Patients’ previous treatment should have included the multiple myeloma medicines lenalidomide and a class of medicines called proteasome inhibitors (e.g. bortezomib, carfilzomib and ixazomib).
Empliciti contains the active substance elotuzumab.
