According to the review of approximately 300,000 patients by Sikander Ailawadhi, MD, Oncologist, Division of Hematology-Oncology, Mayo Clinic, Jacksonville, FL, and colleagues, there was also significant heterogeneity in practice patterns across all characteristics studied.

An interrupted time-series analysis by David Merola, PharmD candidate, Bernard J. Dunn School of Pharmacy, Shenandoah University, Winchester, VA, and colleagues, showed a significant increase in missed workdays per month after the initial diagnosis of multiple myeloma among patients who received oral or injectable cancer therapy.

Treatment with ivosidenib, an IDH1 inhibitor, resulted in an objective response rate of 41.6% in a phase 1 dose-escalation and expansion clinical trial of patients with relapsed or refractory acute myeloid leukemia and IDH1 mutation, according to data presented at ASH 2017.

The current study found no clear evidence linking eltrombopag treatment and risk for cataract development/progression in patients with chronic immune thrombocytopenia (ITP).
The current post-hoc subanalysis of a phase 4 open-label study concluded that the effects on platelet counts after eltrombopag treatment for >2 years was comparable between the persistent immune thrombocytopenia (ITP) and the chronic ITP cohorts, with similar safety profiles.
These study results showed that heavily pretreated patients with persistent/chronic immune thrombocytopenia (ITP) who achieved a stable response with fostamatinib therapy maintained their responses for ≥12 months.
Results of this randomized, placebo-controlled phase 3 trial showed that avatrombopag was superior to placebo in terms of the cumulative number of weeks with a platelet response, platelet response at day 8, and durability of platelet response in patients with refractory chronic immune thrombocytopenia (ITP).
This open-label study reported that the majority of children with immune thrombocytopenia (ITP) who received open-label romiplostim for ≥6 months achieved a platelet response, with median platelet counts >50 × 109/L from week 12 onward and no new safety signals observed during the study period.
Beth Faiman discusses the difficulty of keeping abreast of all the new multiple myeloma treatments and how she personally stays up to date on all of the information.
