Research team uncovers root cause of multiple myeloma relapse
Date:9/18/2013

cal trials, measure this residual disease in patients, and attempt to target it with new drugs or with drugs that may already exist."

"Some myeloma cells are too immature to be caught by the drugs and thus hide underground only to reemerge later," says Keith Stewart, M.B., Ch.B., Dean for Research at Mayo Clinic in Arizona and contributor to the study. "This study has wide implications in the search for a cure of this common blood cancer as this 'progenitor cell' will have to be targeted."

Jonathan Keats, Ph.D., head of TGen's Multiple Myeloma Research Laboratory, said: "This study, which leverages data generated at TGen as part of the Multiple Myeloma Genomics Initiative, shows how mutations acquired by multiple myeloma tumors can make a tumor resistant to specific therapies and highlights the importance of TGen's precision medicine approaches."

Dr. Tiedemann says: "If you think of multiple myeloma as a weed, then proteasome inhibitors are like a goat that eats the mature foliage above ground, producing a remission, but doesn't eat the roots, so that one day the weed returns."
