Event Description

Dr. Robert Orlowski, MD, PhD MD Anderson Cancer Center Interview Date: December 18, 2015

Dr. Orlowski gives us his take on the year with a "Top 12" from the December ASH conference in Orlando. His top picks include both clinical studies looking at combinations of different current drugs, the newly approved drugs, and beginnings of using immunotherapies in clinical practice. Learn more about the new announcements with an easy-to-understand but deep perspective from a multiple myeloma expert.
