Promising new therapeutic approach for debilitating bone disease
(Garvan Institute of Medical Research) Australian researchers have demonstrated that a new type of therapeutic could greatly reduce bone disease in patients with the bone cancer, multiple myeloma. Multiple myeloma is a cancer that develops in bone, causing progressive bone destruction, bone fractures, and often devastating pain. Unlike existing treatments, this new approach rebuilds bone tissue, making it more resistant to fractures.This treatment could greatly reduce the debilitating pain of bone damage, transforming the prognosis for myeloma patients.
