Caring for Patients at Every Stage: Standard of Care and Future Approaches


Emerging Approaches to the Treatment of Newly Diagnosed Multiple Myeloma
Keith Stewart, MB, ChB, MBA

With novel first-line treatments and drug combinations continuing to penetrate the therapeutic landscape in multiple myeloma, it is imperative that community oncologists stay informed and up-to-date on emerging strategies for treating newly diagnosed multiple myeloma (NDMM). In this activity, Dr. Keith Stewart discusses several new treatments for NDMM and compares efficacy and safety data associated with these emerging drugs. He also outlines strategies to ensure that NDMM patients receive the most appropriate agents based on their unique characteristics.

Focus on Induction Regimens for Transplant-eligible Patients with Multiple Myeloma
Sergio A. Giralt, MD, FACP

Despite exciting new developments in the number and kind of pharmacologic options available for multiple myeloma (MM), stem cell transplantation remains an important first-line treatment that is often underutilized. This activity will address critical factors that must be considered when making treatment decisions concerning transplant in MM patients, including safety, efficacy, and potential for long-term remission.

Novel Therapeutic Approaches in Multiple Myeloma: The Future of CAR T-Cells
Noopur Raje, MD

Chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T-cell therapies have been approved for some leukemias and lymphomas, but they are also being explored as a potential treatment option for multiple myeloma (MM). In this activity, Dr. Noopur Raje discusses the mechanism of action for CAR T-cell therapies in MM and the role of conditioning chemotherapy in CAR T-cell therapy. Dr. Raje also describes the efficacy and safety of emerging CAR T-cell therapies for the treatment of MM.
