This research is being done to find out if the investigators can improve outcomes for multiple myeloma patients by giving a myeloma vaccine to patients who are already on lenalidomide (Rev...
Patients with Multiple myeloma who have undergone non-myeloablative allogeneic stem cell transplant will receive 6 vaccinations of donor derived dendritic cells combined with specific prot...
The investigator's primary objective is to compare the 2-year progression free survival of patients treated with lenalidomide alone or in combination with vaccine
The purpose of the study is to determine the toxicity and feasibility of non-myeloablative allogeneic hematopoietic cell transplants for multiple myeloma from unrelated donors.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of vaccination with autologous myeloma cells and an allogeneic granulocyte-macrophage colony stimulating factor (GM-CSF) pr...
Survival of multiple myeloma (MM) patients has improved with introduction of novel anti-myeloma agents. Myeloma has transformed into a chronic condition, accompanied with multiple relapses requiring s...
To estimate the association between organochlorine pesticides and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) and multiple myeloma (MM).
A 60-year-old woman diagnosed with multiple myeloma was referred for Ga-pentixafor PET/CT for evaluation of the disease. Diffuse and intense radioactivity throughout the axial and proximal appendicula...
Multiple myeloma (MM) is a common malignancy belonging to the hematological system. The translocation t(4;14)(p16.3;q32.3) is a critical cytogenetic change of MM, which is presenting a poor prognosis....
Immunotherapy seeks to restore and augment the unique ability of the immune system to recognize and kill malignant cells. This strategy has previously been incorporated into standard of care in myelom...
An asymptomatic and slow-growing PLASMA CELL dyscrasia characterized by presence of MYELOMA PROTEINS and clonal bone marrow plasma cells without end-organ damage (e.g., renal impairment). It is distinguished from MONOCLONAL GAMMOPATHY OF UNDETERMINED SIGNIFICANCE by a much higher risk of progression to symptomatic MULTIPLE MYELOMA.
Abnormal immunoglobulins characteristic of MULTIPLE MYELOMA.
A rare, aggressive variant of MULTIPLE MYELOMA characterized by the circulation of excessive PLASMA CELLS in the peripheral blood. It can be a primary manifestation of multiple myeloma or develop as a terminal complication during the disease.
An abnormal protein with unusual thermosolubility characteristics that is found in the urine of patients with MULTIPLE MYELOMA.
A pyrazine and boronic acid derivative that functions as a reversible PROTEASOME INHIBITOR. It is used as an ANTINEOPLASTIC AGENT in the treatment of MULTIPLE MYELOMA and MANTLE CELL LYMPHOMA.
