At BMS, we work with physicians/investigators to make investigational products available to patients with life-threatening diseases that have exhausted other treatment options and where there is a reasonable expectation of benefit over risk. When contacted by a treating physician, BMS will consider requests for providing early patient access to Elotuzumab in patients with multiple myeloma who are residents of Belgium, Thailand, Turkey, Argentina, and Colombia.
Choosing to participate in an early patient access program is an important personal decision. Talk with your doctor and family members or friends about deciding to participate in an early patient access program. To learn more about early patient access programs, your doctor may contact BMS using the information provided below.
Elotuzumab (Emplicitii) is a Signaling Lymphocytic Activation Molecule Family member 7 (SLAMF7) directed immunostimulatory antibody approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and indicated in combination with lenalidomide and dexamethasone for the treatment of patients with multiple myeloma who have received one to three prior therapies. Please contact your physician for more details.
