Multiple myeloma depth of response to therapy at different stages

Faith Davies, MD, of the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences, Fayetteville, AR, outlines her highlights in multiple myeloma (MM), discussing the importance of depth of response to multiple myeloma therapy. A UK study has shown that further induction therapy prior to transplant can be more successful than proceeding to transplantation in patients who didn’t have a good response to first induction therapy. A US and a European study looked at the role of consolidation therapy post-transplantation. However, the results for these studies are conflicting. Dr Davies concludes that moving forward, it is important to make sure that depth of response is improved in each treatment section. Recorded at the 2016 American Society of Hematology (ASH) Annual Meeting, held in San Diego, CA.
