Multiple myeloma in 2016: Fresh perspectives on treatment and moments of clarity

Authors:
Prashant Kapoor, S. Vincent Rajkumar

Abstract

Data obtained in the past year underscored the benefit of a triplet regimen comprising bortezomib, lenalidomide, and dexamethasone for patients with newly-diagnosed multiple myeloma, and have provided high-level evidence supporting the safety of adding daratumumab to standard-of-care doublets for those with relapsed and/or refractory disease. As a result, achieving minimal residual disease-negativity at any stage of myeloma is now a realistic possibility.
