Meral Beksac, MD, Ankara University, Ankara, Turkey, gives an update on the current status and latest findings in the amyloidosis space. Although the path to fully diagnose a patient is long, a multidisciplinary approach that considers all symptoms, in particular cardiovascular, is helping to reach a diagnosis earlier. In addition, the correct identification of the type of amyloidosis guides physicians to better treatment decisions. In particular, the ANDROMEDA trial (NCT03201965) has recently proven the efficacy of daratumumab in combination with cyclophosphamide, bortezomib, and dexamethasone (CyBorD) in patients with amyloid light-chain (AL) amyloidosis. This interview took place at the 38th World Congress of the International Society of Hematology (ISH) 2022.
