On Wednesday, June 12, the International Myeloma Foundation’s Advocacy department led a group of cancer advocates to Capitol Hill as a part of efforts of the Coalition to Improve Access to Cancer Care (CIACC) to increase support for the Cancer Drug Parity Act of 2019. The article at the link below explains how you can send a message to Congress to support this legislation.




Watch and Learn About the Latest Research from ASCO 2019

The IMF captured video footage from top myeloma experts at the recent American Society of Clinical Oncology Annual Meeting in Chicago. Of note, Abstract #8003, the phase III CASSIOPEIA study, showed that adding Darzalex (daratumumab) to bortezomib, thalidomide, and dexamethasone (VTd) before and after autologous stem cell transplant “resulted in deeper responses and longer progression-free survival compared to VTd alone in patients with newly diagnosed multiple myeloma who are transplant-eligible."

Also a standout was Abstract #8005, the phase III COLUMBA study. This study looked at subcutaneously administered Darzalex that was co-formulated with recombinant human hyaluronidase PH20 (rHuPH20) in patients with relapsed/refractory multiple myeloma. Learn more about these and other key ASCO abstracts at the link below.
