HealthTree University: BCMA Directed Therapies

Do you ever wonder how myeloma treatment specifically targets the myeloma cells? Things weren't always this way. Previously, chemotherapies would fight myeloma cells but would also affect your healthy cells. Today, targeted therpies offer patients effective treatments with little-to-no side effects.

In this HealthTree University course, learn how BCMA directed therapies can play a crucial role in your myeloma treatment. These videos provide simple and easy-to-understand explanations about what BCMA is, how it's used to fight myeloma cells, and what targeted treatment options are available for multiple myeloma patients today. Watch the videos below to gain a deeper understanding of why BCMA directed therapies are used. You can watch the whole BCMA Directed Therapies course on HealthTree University!
