Understanding your lab values gives you a real advantage in the fight against myeloma. All the tests for light chains, bone marrow biopsies, genetic testing and other tests seem like burdens but each contribute to having an accurate picture of your cancer. Watch the following HealthTree University videos to get up to speed on this important aspect of your disease. You can watch the entire course at university.healthtree.org.

12.01    What are the main classes of drugs used in myeloma?

 

12.02    What is the difference between classical chemotherapy and novel targeted therapy?

 

12.03    What alkylating chemotherapies are used in myeloma?

 

12.04    What are immunomodulatory drugs (IMIDs) and how do they work?

 

12.05    What is Cereblon and how is it related to IMIDs?

 

We’d like to thank our faculty who donated their time in creating these videos, including:

  • Alexander Lesokhin, MD
  • Joshua Richter, MD
  • Ivan Borrello, MD
  • Luciano Costa, MD, PhD
