Detecting common mutations in MM patients through liquid biopsy
The detection of various gene mutations, such as those in Ras and Raf, are important for risk stratification and identifying appropriate treatment plans for multiple myeloma (MM) patients. This geneti... Author: VJHemOnc Added: 12/06/2017

I had blood tests (and the Bence Jones 24-hour urine test) last week. This afternoon I got my results. Here goes, in a nutshell: My M-spike has gone down (it has actually been going down a wee bit for the past two tests, so this is the third “wee bit down”). Total IgG is also down (for the second time, when compared to my last few tests). My hemoglobin is in the normal range, even though my red blood cells are slightly low, but just slightly. Everything else looks pretty much the same. Almost everything, certainly anything of importance, is a wee bit better compared to my most recent tests. For example, my mon...

Conclusion The recommended dose of NK012 monotherapy for RRMM patients was concluded to be 20 mg/m2. However, this phase I/II study was terminated at the end of the phase I stage because no patients showed an objective response. Additional clinical studies of combination therapy with NK012 and other agents are warranted. PMID: 29225263 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Lower risk of disease progression, death for multiple myeloma patients ineligible for transplantation
We report the perioperative management of a patient with MM and discuss the perioperative anaesthetic considerations.
Conclusion: Cardiotoxicity is probably not related to bortezomib, even though there are some case reports suggestive of cardiac events related to bortezomib. Our findings need to be confirmed in multicenter, prospective studies.
