Data on Emerging Treatments in Myeloma Unveiled at ASH

At the 2019 ASH Annual Meeting, many presented updated data on several emerging treatment modalities including bispecific t cell engagers. Oncology Nursing News interviewed Sandy W. Wong, MD, an assistant clinical professor in the Division of Hematology/Oncology, University of California, San Francisco Helen Diller Family Comprehensive Cancer Center.

He told the publication: 

"The BiTEs are really interesting. [Previously, there were] data on AMG 420, which was presented at the 2019 ASCO Annual Meeting. It's proof that this category of drugs can be effective in the relapsed/refractory setting. The response rate was great, but many patients suffered from neuropathy and infections, such as the astrogliosis and the adenovirus."
