Title: Myeloma as an Example of Translational Research
Myeloma has been transformed into a chronic disease because of the availability of many new therapies. The platform leading to developing these therapies and their clinical integration is built around a combination of better understanding of disease biology, empirical observations and clinical research. This platform harnesses a strong partnership between patient support organizations, the private sector, academia and the federal government. While many challenges remain in the management of the disease, much progress has occurred. Central to this progress has been the increased understanding of genetic changes driving disease biology, pathogenesis and progression.
