Dr Suzanne Lentzsch, MD, PhD, of Columbia University, New York, NY, presents data from the latest clinical trials testing drugs for amyloidosis. Lentzsch reports on an ongoing study that compares the efficacy of CyBorD vs CyBorD combined with daratumumab, results of which could greatly influence treatment approaches for Amyloidosis in the near future. From the 2018 Society of Hematologic Oncology (SOHO) in Houston, TX, Dr Lentzsch emphasizes the need for more research on anti-amyloid antibodies, highlighting the recent success of FDA-approved drug tafamidis, which significantly increased overall survival in patients with amyloidosis.
