Expert Perspectives on Practice-Changing Strategies for Improved Patient Outcomes in Multiple Myeloma - Part 1

STATEMENT OF NEED Multiple myeloma is a B-cell neoplasm that occurs primarily in older adults. The incidence is expected to rise in conjunction with the aging population. Because symptoms often do not appear until the malignancy is in advanced stages, early diagnosis is difficult, and the 5-year relative survival rate remains only 54% (ACS, 2021). Following diagnosis, management must be guided by cytogenic markers with prognostic significance and correct staging based upon these markers (NC...

In particular, ADCs containing monomethyl auristatin F (MMAF) have been linked to increased incidence of corneal epithelial changes. With the FDA’s 2020 approval of belantamab mafodotin (the first ADC indic...
