Join Kenneth Anderson, MD, William Bensinger, MD, and Carol Ann Huff, MD, for this didactic and case-based symposium which addresses 1) current and emergent treatment options for multiple myeloma (MM) across the disease spectrum, including transplant; 2) therapeutic approaches in maintenance, relapsed and refractory MM as relates to patient selection; and 3) optimizing outcomes by reducing skeletal events and managing bone disease in MM.

Learning Objectives

In particular, faculty and learners will collectively:

  • Address the mechanism of action and rationale for molecular targeted therapy approaches in maintenance and relapsed/refractory MM, and discuss characteristics of patients who may benefit from these approaches
  • Assess treatment approaches, including use of single-agent, combination, and sequenced regimens alongside agents that can reduce skeletal events/improve overall survival in the management of MM
  • Identify and evaluate the factors that affect the choice and response to induction therapy for transplant- and non-transplant-eligible patients with MM
