Dr Francesca Gay - University of Torino, Torino, Italy

Dr Fransesca Gay speaks to ecancer at ASH 2018 about the study looking at maintenance therapy with the oral proteasome inhibitor ixazomib in patients with newly diagnosed multiple myeloma.

She explains that it was found that this maintenance with ixazomib significantly improved progression-free survival with results of 26.5 months compared to the placebo of 21 months.

Dr Gay also reports that an advantage was seen for patients with MRD negativity at the beginning of the study with these patients achieving a median progression-free survival of 38 months.
