Myeloma Crowd TV Episode 2: Myeloma Vaccines

Immunotherapy is becoming an integrated part of myeloma treatment and one important class of immunotherapy is vaccines. While we typically think of vaccines as preventing disease, these myeloma vaccines are intended to eliminate disease. In this episode, we explore vaccines that are working to perform different functions: prevent myeloma from progressing for smoldering patients, eliminate minimal residual disease after transplant, giving high-risk patients hope, or giving patients longer remission times. Whether it's a personalized or "off-the-shelf" vaccine, the options are ever expanding. Enjoy learning more about these exciting options that are coming to the myeloma clinic!
