  • Overview

    Patients with multiple myeloma inevitably experience disease relapse, which is challenging. Rapid therapeutic advances have heralded an increasing number of efficacious targeted strategies and combination therapies for patients after a first relapse or in those with heavily pretreated disease. However, selecting the optimal regimen requires a individualized approach. Hear how Dr. Amrita Krishnan and Dr. Morie Gertz translate the evolving clinical data into their clinical practices and what factors influence their choices to improve durable responses and outcomes for patients with relapsed/refractory multiple myeloma.
