There are some genes that are commmonly mutated in myeloma, measured in tests, and relevant to myeloma treatment. Watch the following HealthTree University videos to learn more about this important aspect of your disease. You can watch the entire course at university.healthtree.org.

18.08    What are oncogenes, tumor suppressor genes, DNA repair genes and common types of each?


18.09    What is BRAF, RAS (K RAS, N RAS)? Can these genes be mutated? Are there other mutated genes associated with myeloma? How are gene mutations determined?


18.1    Why is myeloma hard to treat? What is meant by a signaling pathway?


18.11    What is a genetic signature?


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

  • Leif Bergsagel, MD
  • Brian Van Ness, PhD
