Welcome to a dedicated resource to help healthcare professionals find the latest information on multiple myeloma (MM), measuring treatment response and research into new classes of treatment.
Explore the foundations of MM, including disease pathogenesis, epidemiology, diagnostic methods and measuring treatment response.
Recent treatment advances offer new options for patients with MM. Find out more about current treatment options, as well as upcoming novel therapies.
Even with significant advances in treatment, MM remains a challenging disease. Find out more about the evolution of MM.
Early diagnosis is critical in MM. An array of diagnostic methods can be used to characterise a patient’s MM, allowing for individualised treatment and management.
The right treatment plan can improve a patient's response. Find out how treatment response is measured and what strides are being taken to optimise it.
Treatment aims to extend survival by stopping or slowing growth or spread of myeloma cells. In addition, therapy can alleviate patients’ symptoms and complications, and improve quality of life.
At Janssen, we have more than 30 years of innovation in oncology. Collaborations with Millennium Pharmaceuticals/Takeda Oncology and Genmab have allowed us to codevelop and commercialise a proteasome inhibitor, bortezomib, and an anti-CD38 monoclonal antibody (mAb), daratumumab (Millennium/Takeda and Janssen co-develop bortezomib, and Genmab and Janssen co-develop daratumumab). These products have helped to improve the lives of thousands of patients. We continue our commitment to research and development of new treatments and believe that collaboration with external partners is key to advancing patient care.
We are committed to delivering high-quality medical education built on a platform of knowledge exchange and innovation. To help achieve this, we are privileged to have the support and participation of the internationally renowned experts who form our scientific committees and faculties. Their involvement ensures that we continue to provide clinically relevant and balanced education.
The HME-Forum is an innovative online forum for haematologists, developed by an eminent scientific committee. Through live interactive broadcasts, clinicians can learn from experts as they discuss the latest data and its impact on clinical practice.
Several clinical trials have recently been completed for MM treatments. Additionally, numerous early preclinical and clinical trials for new drug targets are ongoing.
