Dr. Frame explained the etiology, pathophysiology, and rate of progression of multiple myeloma. The median age of diagnosis was in the 70’s, but more recent cases have shown diagnosis as early as 20-40 years old. Dr. Frame highlighted how bone marrow transplant therapy and chemotherapy were first line, but modern medicine have provided more options. He then continued to discuss the latest treatment and studies for Multiple Myeloma, highlighting the VISTA trial. Dr. Frame’s wonderful presentation concluded with a question and answer session.
