This is episode four of our five- part episode series, ‘Removing Mystery from Myeloma‘. On this episode, Dr. Braunstein explains how management of myeloma differs between younger and older patients. He stresses how treatment is not solely based on age and shares the other factors that are taken into consideration when determining how a patient may respond to treatment. Dr. Braunstein discusses minimal residual disease (MRD), the role of autologous and allogeneic transplant for myeloma patients and the difference between palliative and hospice care.
