Is Kyprolis® (carfilzomib) a treatment option for a first relapse of myeloma?

 

In this week’s video, Dr. Brian GM Durie talks about benefits and risks of the combination therapies of Kyprolis and dexamethasone (Kd), and Kyprolis, Revlimid, and dexamethasone (KRd).

BOTTOM LINE:
Kyprolis as a doublet or as a triplet is an excellent option, but work with your doctor to monitor its possible side effects.
