Event Description

Peter Voorhees, MD
Levine Cancer Institute - Atrium Health
Interview Date: May 18, 2021

Quad therapies (four combined myeloma treatments) are becoming more popular, even for newly diagnosed myeloma patients. In this show, Dr. Peter Voorhees of the Levine Cancer Institute shares details about how the addition of a monoclonal antibody like daratumumab, isatuximab or elotuzumab may be used in combination with other standard myeloma treatments for newly diagnosed patients. This is a major shift for newly diagnosed patients to use these monoclonal antibodies in earlier lines of therapy instead of reserving these new treatment drug classes for later use.
