Multiple myeloma (MM) is a hematological cancer that mainly affects individuals older than 65 years of age. Though MM remains incurable, several life-prolonging pharmacotherapies for the treatment of newly diagnosed, relapsed, or refractory MM were reviewed by CADTH and are available or being considered for public reimbursement in Canada. However, at this time, the optimal sequence of therapies is unclear. CADTH is preparing a Therapeutic Review considering multiple MM drugs and treatment steps in order to help decision-makers develop appropriate pharmaceutical funding policies.
