OUTSTANDING Survival Rates For High Risk Multiple Myeloma At Emory! Is Atlanta The New Little Rock For High Risk Myeloma?
BY GARY PETERSEN
If you missed Emory’s Dr. Sagar Lonial’s broadcast on High Risk Myeloma, you missed an excellent and informative program. You can still hear a rebroadcast of the program if you CLICK HERE!
I do think the major takeaway from Dr. Lonial’s presentation was the excellent results he and his team at Emory in Atlanta have achieved with the high risk group of patients. At 3 years 93% of patients were alive vs. the numbers frequently quoted as 50% survival at 2 years. It was my previous thinking either Mayo Scottsdale or UAMS would be the center to unlock a major breakthrough for high risk multiple myeloma treatment. UAMS which has had such remarkable success in the treatment of low risk disease has not been able to repeat this for high risk myeloma and quotes their average life expectancy of 2 years for the high risk cohort of patients.
