The addition of novel agents and combinations to the treatment of multiple myeloma, along with improvements in personalized therapy based on genetic profiles of individual patients, are propelling care forward with their potential for prolonging survival and deepening responses beyond those from the current standards of care. “STORM Part 2 represents the largest, most heavily pretreated population with MM in a prospective clinical trial to date,” said Ajai Chari, MD, associate professor, hematology and medical oncology, Mount Sinai Hospital. He added, “Patients received a median of seven prior therapies over 6.6 years. These patients have no known available therapies with clinical benefit.”
