KYPROLIS is not approved for twice-weekly 27 mg/m2 administration in combination with dexamethasone alone.

The company noted that the FDA reviewed the application under its Oncology Center of Excellence Real-Time Oncology Review and Assessment Aid pilot programs. The FDA approved the application in just over one month after the final component of the application was submitted.
