Multiple myeloma drug therapy consists of two types. One type is to control or kill myeloma cells. The other type is to alleviate symptoms and solve complications and side effects. There are 5 drug classes for multiple myeloma treatment, including:
  • immunomodulatory drugs
  • proteasome inhibitors
  • chemotherapy
  • histone deacetylase inhibitor (HDAC inhibitor)
  • steroids
Never take a certain kind of drug without the permission from doctor. You had better find a doctor specialized in treating your specific multiple myeloma and follow his or her advice on therapy and drugs. You can find an experienced doctor on the website of the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation.
