The Myeloma Crowd Community program is pleased to welcome Drs. Samir Parekh and Oliver Van Oekelen ashare findings from their studies about how myeloma patients are responding to the COVID-19 vaccines. Both doctors currently practice at the Mount Sinai Health System in New York, an institution that was notoriously known these past two years as a COVID-19 hot spot. It was the perfect place to begin their studies about how the myeloma population is responding to COVID-19 vaccines. 

Join us on October 27th at 3 PM Eastern as they share answers to the following questions: 

  • What kinds of antibody responses are being seen in myeloma patients?
  • What myeloma patients are most susceptible to COVID and what puts them at risk?
  • What is the relationship between t-cells and antibodies?
  • Is the booster shot for COVID-19 valuable to immunocompromised patients? What kind of responses are being seen to the booster?
  • How many antibodies are enough to be protected?
  • What else does the research convey?

There will be plenty of time to find the answers to those questions and ask some of your own during the doctors' presentation.
