Recombinant human endostatin (rhES) can inhibit multiple myeloma, while its clinical efficacy in treating relapsed refractory multiple myeloma (RRMM) has not been assessed. One hundred eleven RRMM patients were treated with four different regimens: combination of VD (velcade+dexamethasone) and rhES (n=25), Thalidomide (Tha) and VD (VTD, n=22) combination, rhES and conventional chemotherapy combination (n=32), and combination of conventional chemotherapy and Tha (n=32). Significant differences were found in progression-free survival (PFS) between rhES combination groups and conventional chemotherapy combination groups. No statistical difference was found in overall response rate, overall survival, or incidences of adverse effects. The combination of rhES with VD or conventional chemotherapy is active in patients with RRMM and prolongs the PFS to improve the quality of life. This article is protected by copyright.

The act of regarding attentively and studying facts and occurrences, gathering data through analyzing, measuring, and drawing conclusions, with the purpose of applying the observed information to theoretical assumptions. Observation as a scientific method in the acquisition of knowledge began in classical antiquity; in modern science and medicine its greatest application is facilitated by modern technology. Observation is one of the components of the research process.
The period of time following the triggering of an ACTION POTENTIAL when the CELL MEMBRANE has changed to an unexcitable state and is gradually restored to the resting (excitable) state. During the absolute refractory period no other stimulus can trigger a response. This is followed by the relative refractory period during which the cell gradually becomes more excitable and the stronger impulse that is required to illicit a response gradually lessens to that required during the resting state.
