Abstract

In systemic light-chain amyloidosis, monoclonal antibodies target antigens that are either membrane-bound or circulating or deposited in the organs. CD38 holds high promise as a target against clonal plasma cells. Multiple anti-CD38 antibodies are either approved for use or being investigated in clinical trials. Daratumumab has been investigated and has clinical efficacy in upfront or refractory settings. High rates of hematologic response are seen with daratumumab, which translates to high organ response rates. Rituximab is usually integrated into the treatment regimen for IgM amyloidosis. Anti-amyloid therapies have shown preclinical proof of principle, but lack confirmation of improvement.
