Information about Multiple Myeloma

 

Multiple myeloma is a cancer that affects plasma cells, a kind of white blood cell found in the soft insides of your bones, called marrow. Plasma cells are part of your body's immune system. They make antibodies to help fight off infections.

 

With this cancer, plasma cells multiply and grow out of control. They crowd out healthy cells, including red and white blood cells and those that keep bones strong. Over time, plasma cells spill out of bone marrow and travel to other parts of body, which can damage organs. The disease can weaken your immune system, lead to anemia and cause kidney and bone problems.

 

Multiple myeloma is relatively uncommon type of cancer.

 

More than 114,000 new cases of Myeloma were diagnosed worldwide in 2012 (0.8% of total cancer cases).

 

Myeloma incidence rates are highest in Australia/New Zealand and lowest in Western Africa, but this partly reflects varying data quality worldwide.

 

Our main therapeutic approach in patients of Multiple Myeloma differs as per the stage of the disease and patient’s condition.

 

We plan our therapy directed towards maintaining patient’s immunity and preventing progression of the disease and avoiding complications. Looking at the severity of patient’s symptoms our medicines are planned such that it will minimize patients suffering in a short span of just few weeks.
