"Dr. Ajai Chari Outlines Disparities and Treatment Patterns in Multiple Myeloma"
Ajai Chari, MD, associate professor, hematology and medical oncology at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, discusses multiple myeloma. “Research has shown disparities in multiple myeloma treatment between clinical trials and real-world outcomes, as well as a lot of heterogeneity among treatment patterns by age and region.” He added, “The disparities relate to the differences between clinical trials and real-world outcomes. So, in clinical trials we cherry picked really healthy patients.”
