One of the most daunting aspects of being diagnosed with myeloma is learning about an unfamiliar disease that is quite complicated. The IMF’s Patient Handbook for the Newly Diagnosed provides an overview of myeloma, with a focus on getting the correct diagnosis and prognostic classification, the tests you really need, when to begin treatment, which issues to consider when selecting your treatment regimen, and supportive care measures to alleviate the physical and emotional impact of myeloma.
This booklet provides an overview of myeloma for patients with relapsed or refractory disease. It includes a discussion of epidemiology, clinical features, pathophysiology, drugs currently in use for myeloma in the U.S., response or remission, relapsing or refractory disease, and supportive care.
The IMF's Understanding series of cancer information booklets is designed to acquaint you with specific multiple myeloma-related tests, treatments and therapies, supportive care measures, and common adverse events.
Designed to serve as consistent references in a concise manner, the IMF’s Tip Cards cover key topics, including treatment and care issues of interest to patients and caregivers.
