What Is Multiple Myeloma?

Multiple Myeloma is a type of cancer that affects plasma cells, which is a kind of white blood cell found in the bone marrow. These cells help to produce antibodies that fight infection. However, in multiple myeloma, cancerous plasma cells build up in the bone marrow until there are more of them than healthy cells. This produces abnormal proteins that lead to complications such as bone damage, anemia, kidney dysfunction, and a weakened immune system.

Treatment for Multiple Myeloma is focused on controlling the progression of the disease, managing symptoms, and enhancing the quality of life for patients through a combination of medications, chemotherapy, stem cell transplantation, and supportive care.

How Do Different Types of Multiple Myeloma Medications Work?

In the treatment of Multiple Myeloma, there are some medications that many patients need to use:

  • Kyprolis (Carfilzomib): A proteasome inhibitor which blocks the action of proteasomes found in cancer cells. Proteasomes are involved in degrading damaged or unnecessary proteins within the cell. This medication inhibits this from happening and causes proteins to build up in the cells, leading to cell death, mostly in cancer cells.
  • Pomalyst (Pomalidomide): Belongs to a class of drugs known as immunomodulatory agents. This drug works by slowing down the immune system so the body produces less multiple myeloma cells. It also makes the microenvironment of the tumor difficult for cancer cells to grow in and, therefore, spread.
