Clinical Use:

Detect and identify monoclonal immunoglobulin gammopathies in the presence of therapeutic monoclonal antibody (mAbs) drug treatment with Daratumumab (Dara®), a human IgG1 κ mAb, which migrates in the electrophoretic γ globulin zone of the electrophoresis gel. In this laboratory procedure, the Dara® in vitro interference is removed using an anti-daratumumab antibody reagent. This procedure will characterize the specific light and heavy chain components of a monoclonal protein without Dara® interference

Test Information:

DARAZLEX® (daratumumab) is a human monoclonal IgG κ antibody targeting CD38 that has been shown to provide clinical benefit as monotherapy in heavily pre-treated multiple myeloma patients and when combined with standard of care regimens for the treatment of MM in patients with the earlier disease.
The HYDRASHIFT 2/4 daratumumab reagent allows the laboratory to distinguish daratumumab interference from endogenous M protein on Hydragel IF assay and therefore suggest a potential complete response (CR) or stringent complete response (sCR) if the Immunofixation with HYDRASHIFT 2/4 daratumumab confirms undetectable endogenous M proteins.
