HealthTree University: Myeloma Vaccines Part 1 of 2

Myeloma vaccines are a newer and exciting area of research in multiple myeloma. No myeloma vaccines are FDA-approved as of yet, but many are in stage 1 and stage 2 clinical trials with the hope that someday these vaccines will become part of a curative treatment strategy. We've assembled this course which features the top world experts on myeloma vaccines to teach you about these latest advances in myeloma research. You can watch the entire course on HealthTree University.

19.01    What are cancer vaccines and how do they work? What side effects are being seen with myeloma vaccines? Have any cancer vaccines been FDA approved?


19.02    How are vaccines made? What are vaccine adjuvants (immune stimulators)?


19.03    What is the difference between a vaccine that is personalized vs a shared (off the shelf or allogeneic) vaccine?


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

  • Ivan Borrello, MD
  • David Avigan, MD
  • Syed Abbas Ali, MBBS
