  • Description
  • Details

This volume reviews the current literature, provides critical evaluations of the data and offers evidence-based recommendations.

It is estimated that over 20,000 new cases are diagnosed each year with over 10,000 people dying from these malignancies. Multiple myelomas are highly treatable but rarely curable. Thus it is crucial for the practitioner to be up-to-date on the latest insights regarding their management.

Management options and outcomes for individuals with multiple myelomas improved dramatically with the introduction of chemotherapy. Even further improvements in prognosis have occurred because of the introduction of newer therapies such as pulse corticosteroids, thalidomide, bortezomib, and autologous and allogeneic stem cell transplantation. With the increased number of therapeutic options to choose from, the clinician is better placed to offer effective therapy but at the same time is challenged to keep abreast of the rapidly changing treatment landscape and the newly emerging data that is shaping the treatment options today and in the future. Multiple Myeloma provides a comprehensive and in-depth review of this group of malignancies.
