What new information on myeloma will be presented during ASCO 2017?

 

In this week’s video, Dr. Brian Durie points to ASCO 2017 presentations on new multiple myeloma drug combinations, monoclonal antibodies, and checkpoint inhibitors; however, he finds there are “no major breakthroughs” on myeloma from this year’s meeting.

BOTTOM LINE:
Even though ASCO 2017 offers no major breakthroughs, some fine-tuning discoveries can improve day-to-day care of myeloma patients.
