Best Responses Ever in Amyloidosis With Myeloma Drug Combo


… Joseph Mikhael, MD, MEd, FRCPC, FACP, from the Mayo Clinic Scottsdale, Arizona, and colleagues report results from a retrospective series of 17 patients with a median follow-up of 21 months… Some of the results, such as the 94% response rate and the 71% complete response rate, are unprecedented, Dr. Mikhael said in an interview. "Although I am cognizant that these are preliminary results from small studies, I am excited.... These results will have to be corroborated in larger studies, but this combination holds great promise."
