Can You Get a Kidney Transplant with Multiple Myeloma?

Myeloma Patients with Kidney Involvement
event Mar 14, 2024 / 01:00PM - 02:00PM EDT

Event Description

Myeloma patients with kidney disease are often in a precarious position in which both their kidneys and their myeloma need to be treated simultaneously.
In rare cases, myeloma patients' kidney function does not improve with myeloma treatment and a kidney transplant may be necessary. Attend the meeting to get answers to the following questions:

  • Who truly needs a transplant?
  • Is a transplant possible if the patient has active myeloma?
  • How long will the patient need to stop active treatment if they have a kidney transplant?
  • How are patients with kidney involvement monitored differently than those with "standard" myeloma?

We look forward to seeing you there and answering your questions!
