Welcome to the latest installment of Multiple Myeloma Updates for Advanced Practitioners in Oncology. Last month, I had the pleasure of sharing with you the video roundtable discussion that my colleagues and I recorded at the ASH annual meeting in December. I hope that you enjoyed the video and were able to come away from it with an increased understanding of the current MM landscape as well as several clinical pearls.
This month, I’ve assembled some links to MM in the news and in the published literature. In particular, take a look at the article from The ASCO Post entitled, “Multiple Myeloma in 2015: A Year for the Record Books,” which nicely summarizes and contextualizes the exciting FOUR practice-changing drug approvals that we saw in 2015--three of which came through in November alone!
If you missed it last month or are new to the newsletter, don’t forget to check out the video roundtable. You can also access links from past newsletters on the website.
As always, feel free to share this resource with your colleagues, and don’t hesitate to contact me with suggestions, comments, or questions.
