Symposium Information

Multiple myeloma (MM), the second most common hematological malignancy in the world, affects 1 to 5 out of 100,000 individuals per year primarily in patients 65 years of age or older. There is currently no cure and patients reaching complete response (CR) to treatment will eventually relapse. MM patients with relapsing and/or refractory (R/R) disease are exposed for prolonged periods of time to multiple drugs in varying combinations, which increases their risk of developing toxicity and treatment-related adverse events (TRAEs). With the increasing implementation of novel therapies, including CAR T-cell therapy and bispecific antibodies (BsAbs), to the growing treatment armamentarium for MM, emergency medical physicians, advanced practice practitioners (APPs), and other emergency medicine health professionals must remain apprised of any and all TRAEs. Clinicians must be prepared to both quickly and accurately diagnose and treat life-threatening events including immune effector cell-associated neurotoxicity syndrome neurotoxicity (ICANS) and cytokine release syndrome (CRS). With these challenges in mind, this symposium will focus on the safety and efficacy of current and emerging immunotherapies, and patient-specific strategies related to risk factors, toxicities, and AE management to assist emergency providers in mitigating untoward TRAEs as they apply to MM.

Learning Objectives

  • Evaluate recent real-world clinical data of newer and emerging immunotherapeutic options, including CAR T-cell therapy and BsAbs, for the treatment of R/R MM and their potential implications in the development of TRAEs
  • Accurately recognize, diagnose, treat, and manage the most common hematological and non-hematological toxicities and TRAEs in patients affected by and treated for MM
  • Understand current guidelines and protocols available for TRAEs in MM patients
  • Incorporate and implement a multidisciplinary team (MDT) approach to improve MM patient outcomes and quality of life
