International Myeloma Working Group

The International Myeloma Working Group, a collaborative group of leading myeloma specialists around the globe, has a two-fold task: to publish consensus statements and guidelines for the management of myeloma and to conduct translational research—from lab bench to patient bedside--under the auspices of the International Myeloma Foundation. The following publications represent the work of the International Myeloma Working Group.
