What is Multiple Myeloma?

 

Multiple Myeloma is a type of cancer that forms in the white blood cells called plasma cells and cancerous plasma cells spread into bone marrow and crowd out healthy blood cells. In this condition production of healthy antibodies is blocked and the production of abnormal proteins causes complications.

What is the treatment for Multiple Myeloma Treatment?

 

The major cause of such cost that one has to bear on the treatment is the fact that it is a type of cancer. In general cancer treatment is costly. The treatment that our patient from Nigeria went through helped to reduce the chance of cancer spreading as well.

 

The major treatments involved are:

 

Targeted therapy

 

Targeted drug treatments focus on specific weaknesses present within cancer cells. By blocking these abnormalities, targeted drug treatments can cause cancer cells to die.

 


Immunotherapy

 

Immunotherapy uses your immune system to fight cancer. Your body’s disease-fighting immune system may not attack your cancer because the cancer cells produce proteins that help them hide from the immune system cells. Immunotherapy works by interfering with that process.

 

Chemotherapy

 

Chemotherapy uses drugs to kill cancer cells. The drugs kill fast-growing cells, including myeloma cells. High doses of chemotherapy drugs are used before a bone marrow transplant.

 

Corticosteroids

 

Corticosteroid medications regulate the immune system to control inflammation in the body. They are also active against myeloma cells.

 

Bone marrow transplant

 

A bone marrow transplant, also known as a stem cell transplant, is a procedure to replace your diseased bone marrow with healthy bone marrow.

 

Before a bone marrow transplant, blood-forming stem cells are collected from your blood. You then receive high doses of chemotherapy to destroy your diseased bone marrow. Then your stem cells are infused into your body, where they travel to your bones and begin rebuilding your bone marrow.

 

Radiation therapy

 

Radiation therapy uses high-powered energy beams from sources such as X-rays and protons to kill cancer cells. It may be used to quickly shrink myeloma cells in a specific area for instance, when a collection of abnormal plasma cells form a tumor (plasmacytoma) that’s causing pain or destroying a bone.
