12 12 2017

This is a marvelous advancement for patients and their doctors; however, it can also challenge clinicians to offer the best care for their patients with myeloma. - Shaji Kumar, MD RESTON, Va. December 12, 2017 Healthcare providers (HCPs) showed a delay in the integration of novel treatment approaches for the care of patients with myeloma, particularly for those with relapsed/refractory disease, according to an analysis of data captured from an online tool developed by Clinical Care Options (CCO) in collaboration with 5 myeloma experts.

Treatment variance was even more pronounced in the relapsed/refractory disease setting where multiple next-generation proteasome...
