Dr. Richter on Toxicities of Treatments for Multiple Myeloma

Joshua Richter, MD, a hematologist/oncologist specializing in multiple myeloma at the John Theurer Cancer Center, discusses toxicities in the treatment of patients with multiple myeloma.

According to Richter, toxicities are becoming more of an issue in multiple myeloma. Physicians need to understand where the difficulty comes from. There are many new drugs, and these drugs may offer many patients tremendous outcomes; however, there is also a significant amount of financial burden for the patient and their family.
