Daratumumab is an investigational anti-cancer drug. It binds to CD38. Daratumumab was originally developed by Genmab, but it is now being jointly developed by Genmab along with the Johnson & Johnson subsidiary Janssen Biotech, which acquired worldwide commercialization rights to the drug from Genmab.
Encouraging preliminary results were reported in June 2012 from a Phase 1/2 clinical trial in relapsed multiple myeloma patients. Updated trial results presented in December 2012 indicate daratumumab is continuing to show promising single-agent anti-myeloma activity.
