SOHO 2021: amyloidosis treatment updates
Over the last two decades the outcomes of patients with amyloidosis have substantially improved with timely diagnosis, the use of chemotherapeutic agents, and improved patient selection for autologous stem cell transplantation (ASCT); however, for patients who are diagnosed at later stages or who are ineligible for ASCT the prognosis is poorer. Recently, the introduction of daratumumab has shown promising results for patients with both newly diagnosed and relapsed/refractory amyloidosis and there have been a number of Phase II/III trials aiming to help guide treatment decision-making and improve patient outcomes.
In today’s podcast, Angela Dispenzieri, MD, of the Mayo Clinic, Rochester, MN, gives an overview of key updates in the treatment landscape of amyloidosis, as presented at the ninth annual meeting of the Society of Hematologic Oncology (SOHO 2021) congress.
