Stringent Complete Response in Multiple Myeloma Associated With Best Survival Outcomes

Patients able to achieve stringent complete response after undergoing autologous stem-cell transplantation for multiple myeloma achieved improved long-term outcomes, including overall survival and time to progression, compared with patients who achieved lesser levels of response.

Multiple myeloma patients may already suffer from sensory deficits prior to treatment, likely due to disease-related decreases in peripheral innervation density.

The optimal treatment strategy for newly diagnosed multiple myeloma is consolidation with melphalan, stem-cell transplantation, then lenalidomide maintenance.

Continuous treatment with lenalidomide plus dexamethasone improved progression-free and overall survival in transplant-ineligible multiple myeloma patients.

Treatment with bortezomib prior to autologous stem cell transplant resulted in superior outcomes in multiple myeloma patients with end-stage renal failure.

In a phase I trial, the oral AKT inhibitor afuresertib demonstrated single-agent activity against hematologic malignancies, specifically multiple myeloma.

Researchers from Japan believe they have identified a novel staging system based on hemoglobin and plasmacytoma that may help to stratify patients with multiple myeloma who are treated with novel therapeutics.

Carfilzomib given at a higher dose as a slow intravenous infusion over 30 minutes resulted in a very high response rate in a heavily pretreated myeloma population.
