Full prescribing information is available at http://www.onyx.com.

"This approval provides a new treatment option for the significant unmet need that exists in patients with multiple myeloma who have progressed after use of available treatments," said Dr. David Siegel, Chief of the Division of Multiple Myeloma at John Theurer Cancer Center at Hackensack University Medical Center. "The single-agent activity of Kyprolis provides clinicians the opportunity to help these patients who until now had no effective options."
