- Impact of multiple myeloma (MM) on racial and ethnic groups
- New therapies and clinical trials
- Bispecific antibodies
- Symptom changes and quality of life
- Types of treatment for relapsed/refractory multiple myeloma (RRMM)
- Patient stories and resources
There is a need for new MM treatments, particularly for patients who have relapsing MM after double- and/or triple-combination therapy. The latest research has provided new treatment options, such as bispecific antibodies, that show promise after multiple therapies. To achieve equitable care, patients and caregivers must be open to sharing preferences with their care team when discussing the treatment options.
Join an expert panel featuring a hematologist/oncologist, a nurse practitioner, and a patient advocate for a discussion of significant differences in clinical presentations with MM and inequities in the treatment of MM patients. The panel will also review the mechanisms of action (MOAs) of new agents and current research that demonstrates promise in treating RRMM. Panelists will also share ideas to help you talk to your healthcare team about your treatment choices and determine if a clinical trial might be an option for you.
