The impact on early diagnosis and survival outcome of M-protein screening-driven diagnostic approach to multiple myeloma in China: a cohort study

Conclusion: We concluded that the actual MM incidence in China may have been underestimated and M-protein screening in hospital population by SPEP is an effective approach to improve early diagnosis rate and outcome.

CONCLUSIONS: This study provides the basis for studying the addition of JAK inhibitors to improve the efficacy of immunomodulatory agents with steroids for treating myeloma patients but perhaps can also be expanded for treating other cancer patients that are refractory to this class of drugs.

This study evaluated year ‐to‐year changes in treatment choices in a cohort of patients aged 66 or older in the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER)‐Medicare registry diagnosed with MM between 2007 and 2011. We found that while the usage of PIs among elderly MM patients increased significantly replacing I MiD‐based regimens (with or without alkylating agents but not with PI) between 2007 and 2011, this significant shift did not increase the proportion of treated patients. AbstractThe landscape of treatment for  multiple myeloma (MM) has significantly changed over the last decade due to&...

In this study, we reviewed major human studies on the health risks of radiation exposure and showed that sex-related factors may potentially influence the long-term response to radiation exposure. Available data suggest that long-term radiosensitivity in women is higher than that in men who receive a comparable dose of radiation. The report on the biological effects of ionizing radiation (BEIR VII) published in 2006 by the National Academy of Sciences, United States emphasized that women may be at significantly greater risk of suffering and dying from radiation-induced cancer than men exposed to the same dose of radiation....

CONCLUSIONS: This trial is the first to report outcomes using a triplet regimen of high-dose carfilzomib. KDD was well tolerated and appears efficacious in RRMM. Additional study is needed to more precisely determine patient outcomes with this regimen and its utility compared to other carfilzomib containing salvage regimens.

Authors: Yuan J, Su Z, Gu W, Shen X, Zhao Q, Shi L, Jin C, Wang X, Cong H, Ju S Abstract Multiple myeloma (MM) is a common hematological malignancy that is often associated with osteolytic lesions, anemia and renal impairment. Deregulation of miRNA has been implicated in the pathogenesis of MM. It was found in our study that miR-19b and miR-20a as members of crucial oncogene miR-17-92 cluster were differentially expressed between patients with MM and normal controls by genechip microarray, and this result was further confirmed in sera of patients with MM by qRT-PCR. The functional effect of miR-19b/20a was analyzed...
