A Big Month for Multiple Myeloma

Author: RxWikiTV

Before November, there were seven FDA-approved medications to treat multiple myeloma. Now that November is over, there are 10. I'm Shelby Cullinan with your latest health news. And that's a big leap forward for patients with an often-deadly form of blood cancer that the American Cancer Society estimates will sicken nearly 27,000 people this year. The three new multiple myeloma treatments approved by the US FDA in November were Darzalex, Ninlaro and Empliciti.

The recently approved multiple myeloma treatments also brought new ways to treat this disease, which attacks a type of white blood cell in bone marrow and can compromise the immune system and damage bone health. All three of the new treatments were approved for use in patients who had not responded to other multiple myeloma treatments. They appeared to increase survival, reduce tumor size, delay disease progression or a combination of the three. Speak to your doctor about recently approved medications for your condition.
