Multiple myeloma (MM) is a hematologic malignancy characterized by the proliferation of clonal plasma cells. Although advances in treatment have markedly improved survival outcomes for patients with MM, this disease is still considered incurable owing to its high incidence of relapse and refractoriness. Isatuximab is an anti-CD38 monoclonal antibody that can induce apoptosis in myeloma cells through a variety of mechanisms. Many clinical studies have demonstrated the efficacy and efficiency of isatuximab in both relapsed/refractory multiple myeloma (RRMM) and newly diagnosed multiple myeloma, leading to its approval for the treatment of adults with RRMM in combination therapies. In this review, the structure, mechanisms of action, pharmacokinetics, pharmacogenetics, and safety profile of isatuximab in MM are summarized. Additionally, isatuximab is compared with daratumumab in terms of mechanism and efficacy.
