Priority 10 from the Myeloma (Canada) PSP

UNCERTAINTY: Can we develop treatments specifically for high risk or aggressive myeloma that will improve outcomes for these patients?  (JLA PSP Priority 10)
Overall ranking 10
JLA question ID 0113/10
Explanatory note High risk or aggressive myeloma is defined by disease stage, chromosomal abnormalities, disease biology, and gene expression, and is associated with worse outcomes. Participants want to know about the current treatment options and the new treatments for patients with high risk or aggressive myeloma (including those with genetic abnormalities, deletions, etc.) that will improve outcomes for these patients?  

No evidence identified

Health Research Classification System category Cancer and neoplasms
Extra information provided by this PSP
Original uncertainty examples Are there individual drugs that can be isolated to the treatment of specific myeloma conditions such as high risk factors? ~ How can outcomes be better for those with high risk myeloma (genetic abnormalities, deletions, etc) ~ More research for specific treatments for high risk myeloma  Results of larger studies broken down to show results for high risk patients separately from regular myeloma patients ~ What treatments are most effective for those living with a  P53 diagnosis.
