The IMF Concise Review of the Disease and Treatment Options is an overview of myeloma, with a discussion of the pathophysiology, clinical features, and treatment options. It is hoped that the information will be helpful to health professionals and patients alike.
Myeloma is a complex disease that can have different features in each patient. No single test or study is adequate to tell the whole story about a patient’s status, but used together, test results give a more complete picture than any single test does. It is important for you and your doctor to understand your disease and to know which tests are best for monitoring your myeloma.
