Posted Oct 12, 2021

The Myeloma Crowd Community program is pleased to welcome Drs. Samir Parekh and Oliver Van Oekelen ashare findings from their studies about how myeloma patients are responding to the COVID-19 vaccines. Both doctors currently practice at the Mount Sinai Health System in New York, an institution that was notoriously known these past two years as a COVID-19 hot spot. It was the perfect place to begin their studies about how the myeloma population is responding to COVID-19 vaccines. 

Join us on October 27th at 3 PM Eastern as they share answers to the following questions: 

  • What kinds of antibody responses are being seen in myeloma patients?
  • What myeloma patients are most susceptible to COVID and what puts them at risk?
  • What is the relationship between t-cells and antibodies?
  • Is the booster shot for COVID-19 valuable to immunocompromised patients? What kind of responses are being seen to the booster?
  • How many antibodies are enough to be protected?
  • What else does the research convey?

There will be plenty of time to find the answers to those questions and ask some of your own during the doctors' presentation.
