The International Myeloma Working Group’s (IMWG) summaries focus on guidelines and statements about certain aspects of multiple myeloma. The IMWG's research on multiple myeloma studies its causes, how to stage the disease, and how to achieve remission. The following are a few of the topics that the IMWG covers: 

  • vertebral augmentation
  • treatment-emergent peripheral neuropathy
  • facilities and services for myeloma patients
  • using bisphosphonates

With new and upcoming information about myeloma and its treatments, the International Myeloma Working Group’s summaries clarify upcoming data in an easier way. These summaries also focus on myeloma’s classifications, different types of myeloma, what influences myeloma to become active as well as managing the side effects of treatment.
