In Loving Memory of Our Dear Friend Mike Katz, Long-Term IMF Board Member and Leading Patient Advocate


This past weekend the IMF lost a long-standing Board member who brought myeloma patient advocacy to the forefront. Michael (“Mike”) Katz routinely inspired patients to take charge of their myeloma. He was a colleague and friend to patients and physicians alike. IMF President Susie Novis recalls the many accomplishments and special spirit that made Mike a hero for myeloma patients everywhere.

The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has just approved a label update for pomalidomide (Pomalyst®) for multiple myeloma patient treatment. This label update includes information that pomalidomide, a thalidomide analog, has been approved in combination with dexamethasone for multiple myeloma patients who have received at least two prior therapies, including lenalidomide (Revlimid®) and a proteasome inhibitor, and have demonstrated disease progression on or within 60 days of completion of the last therapy.

IMF to Host a Global Myeloma Action Network Summit in June 2015


This June, the IMF’s Global Myeloma Action Network (GMAN) will host an international summit focusing on ways in which to improve the lives of myeloma patients around the world. GMAN, an advocacy initiative of the IMF, is comprised of 30 myeloma patient groups (whose representatives are pictured in photo at right from 2014 meeting) from around the world who join forces to overcome challenges. This year, GMAN will introduce several new components to better assist members in discussion and problem solving, including an online chat forum, member newsletter and mentorship program. The IMF looks forward to what the future holds for GMAN.
