Event Description

Myeloma specialist, Dr. David Vesole tackles a pressing question in myeloma research: what's the role of tandem transplants in today's myeloma? A tandem autologous transplant means that two autologous transplants are performed within six months of each other and have often been used in the past for those with high-risk multiple myeloma. But considering all of the new immunotherapies being approved, does tandem transplant still have a place in the myeloma arsenal? Find out with us on May 10th.
