Transcription:

At the ASH [Annual Meeting & Exposition] this year, the most influential research, as you saw, were [about] bispecific [agents] or CAR T-cell therapies, right? We’re seeing a lot of changes in immune regulation [regarding] how the immune cells are working and understanding how to use those to target and attack the myeloma cells. There’s going to be a combination of trials and combination therapies that are really going to come up [to the front-line setting to determine] if that will benefit the patients.
