Living with relapsed refractory multiple myeloma

Understanding remission and relapse

Advances in medicine have given doctors and patients a number of treatment options that help control multiple myeloma by reducing the number of myeloma cells in your body.

When your body responds to treatment, you may have a complete or partial remission, where your myeloma is under control and isn’t currently progressing.

After a period of being in remission, it is possible for multiple myeloma to relapse or not respond to your current treatment (sometimes called “refractory”). When this happens, there may be other treatments available, which may include SARCLISA, that have been studied specifically in people with previously treated multiple myeloma.
