Multiple Myeloma Update — Part 4: Our interview with Dr Ghobrial highlights the following topics as well as cases from her practice:

  • Case: A woman in her late 60s with high-risk R/R MM attains an excellent response to daratumumab/pomalidomide/dexamethasone (00:00)
  • Evidence-based selection of up-front treatment combinations for younger versus older patients with newly diagnosed MM (01:36)
  • Clinical significance of minimal residual disease (MRD) assessment; correlation between MRD negativity and long-term outcomes for patients with newly diagnosed MM receiving treatment (05:08)
  • Selection, use and duration of maintenance therapy after ASCT (08:26)
  • Significance of CHIP (clonal hematopoiesis of indeterminate potential) mutations and increased predisposition to hematologic cancer or cardiovascular-associated mortality (10:40)
  • Therapeutic options for patients who experience disease progression on maintenance lenalidomide (13:52)
  • Mechanisms of action of elotuzumab and daratumumab; activity and safety of immune-directed therapies for MM (15:47)
  • Response and tolerability of anti-BCMA CAR T-cell therapies (18:25)
  • Case: A man in his mid-50s with multiagent-refractory MM receives a BCMA-directed antibody-drug conjugate on a clinical trial (21:46)
  • Case: A woman in her early 40s with high-risk smoldering MM with deletion 17p experiences a partial response to elotuzumab/lenalidomide/dexamethasone (24:26)
  • Efficacy and cardiotoxicity with second-line carfilzomib/lenalidomide/dexamethasone followed by maintenance carfilzomib/lenalidomide for del(17p) smoldering MM (27:50)
  • Activity of melflufen in patients with heavily pretreated MM (29:56)
  • Newly approved and investigational approaches for heavily pretreated MM (31:47)
  • Incidence of BRAF mutations in patients with MM; activity and ongoing investigation of BRAF inhibitors for R/R MM (33:25)
