Dr Charlotte Pawlyn speaks to ecancer at ASH 2018 about the results of the Myeloma XI study.

The work being presented was focused on results from the comparison between a quadruplet regimen comprising of carfilzomib, cyclophosphamide, lenalidomide, and dexamethasone (KCRD) vs an immunomodulatory agent containing triplet (CTD/CRD) induction therapy for transplant eligible patients.

Dr Pawlyn explains that the results showed that the quadruplet led to deeper responses and prolonged progression free survival.
