Three Holiday Presents for Myeloma Patients

With the recent FDA approvals of the myeloma drugs Darzalex (daratumamab), Ninlaro (ixazomib) and Empliciti (elotuzamab), the end of 2015 offered many holiday presents for myeloma patients. But, as IMF Chairman Dr. Brian Durie writes in his blog this week, in the New Year, myeloma doctors will need to figure out how to use these drugs in a clinical setting.

And That's a Wrap: Myeloma Support Group Leaders' Final Thoughts on ASH 2015



The IMF sent 15 Support Group Leaders (SGLs) from around the country to the largest hematological cancer meeting of the year in Orlando, FL, in early December.  While attending, the SGLs blogged and tweeted the latest news in myeloma research. Now that they have returned to their hometowns, these patient advocates weigh in on ASH topics most important to them: when to treat smoldering multiple myeloma; the newly approved FDA oral agents in individual treatments; MRD-testing; and more.
