When multiple myeloma relapses
Make your treatment choice count in patients who relapse for the 1st time
Despite substantial progress, the majority of patients with multiple myeloma still fail to achieve optimal response regardless of treatment regimen.1 Multiple myeloma currently remains incurable and most patients will relapse despite achievement of CR.1,2
In addition, as the disease progresses, clinical benefit decreases with each subsequent line of therapy.3
There continues to be an urgent unmet need for novel therapeutic approaches that provide high-quality response and symptomatic relief, and maintain a good quality of life for patients with relapsed or refractory multiple myeloma.4
Of patients receiving therapy after 1st relapse, 4 out of 10 do not start a therapy after 2nd relapse.5 Therefore, the strongest treatment should be chosen at first relapse.5
