The importance of onco-geriatric assessments for multiple myeloma

Siobhan Glavey, MD, PhD, Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland, Dublin, Ireland, discusses the importance of utilizing geriatric assessments for elderly patients with multiple myeloma, as clinical trials indicate that clinical risk factors such as frailty are equally predictive of outcomes as cytogenetics. Prof. Glavey believes that frailty is a dynamic marker and should be assessed in combination with molecular analyses to provide better insights into which treatment option is appropriate for patients. This interview was recorded virtually.
