HealthTree Podcast for Multiple Myeloma
event Sep 20, 2023 / 10:00AM CDT

Event Description


Dr. John DiPersio of Washington University shares how stem cell transplant is evolving for multiple myeloma care. As a decades old but tried and true and effective therapy, it is still routinely used in the myeloma clinic as a way to typically provide an extended remission. Advances are being made in the stem cell transplant process which include a recent FDA approval of a stem cell collection drug called motixafortide (Aphexda) that can speed the time and quality of collected stem cells. Dr. DiPersio will also share how many patients may want to undergo stem cell collection whether they plan to do a stem cell transplant or not and how transplant use is changing in the age of immunotherapies.
