Workshop Description:

Join us to learn about multiple myeloma treatment and have your questions ready for a Q&A after
the workshop. The workshop will provide updates regarding the monitoring and treatment of the
second most common blood-cased cancer called multiple myeloma. Despite major advances in
therapy, the disease remains incurable. New blood tests have become available recently that allow
quicker determination of changes in the clinical status of patients and can find disease that was
previously not detectable. Many new treatments are available mostly involving targeting the tumor
cells while at the same time boosting the immune system’s ability to knock out the myeloma. Other
new, effective treatments have been identified that provide novel approaches to treating myeloma
effectively and safely.
