What are Antibodies and How are They Used in Multiple Myeloma? image

What are antibodies, and how are they used to treat multiple myeloma? Are there multiple kinds of antibodies, and how are they different? We've assembled this course, which features the top world experts on immunotherapy to teach you about these latest advances in myeloma research. You can watch the entire course at HealthTree University.

What is the Function of Antibodies?


What are Monoclonal Antibodies?

​​​​Dr. Lentzsch explains monoclonal antibodies as proteins that are artificially produced, similar to the antibodies produced by the body to fight infections. Still, they are designed only to target myeloma cells. In this video, you will find out how this works!

What are Antibody-Drug Conjugates?

Dr. Gareth Morgan, MD, PhD, and other experts will explain how antibody-drug conjugates work, mention a few examples of the newest available, and help you decide if they are a good option for you!


We’d like to thank our faculty who donated their time in creating these videos, including:

  • Suzanne Lentzsch, MD, PhD
  • Dan Vogl, MD, MSCE
  • Matthew Pianko, MD
  • Alexander Lesokhin, MD
  • Joshua Richter, MD
  • Gareth Morgan, MD, PhD
  • Ravi Vij, MD, MBA
