Tailor-made Cancer Treatment for Multiple Myeloma Patients Offered by Mayo Clinic

he first-discovered, or canonical, NF-êB pathway.

But through extensive genetic examination of 42 unique multiple myeloma cell lines and tumor samples taken from 68 patients, the investigators defined multiple genetic mutations in the other NF-êB pathway, the so-called non-canonical pathway. "These mutations make the tumor more dependent on that pathway, and consequently more susceptible to bortezomib treatment," said senior author Rafael Fonseca, M.D., also at Mayo Clinic in Arizona. "Identifying these mutations in patients will help us decide who should be treated with bortezomib, probably as an initial therapy," he says. The researchers are developing a test to check for activation of the non-canonical NF-êB pathway in patients. Now that the mutations have been identified, drug designers may be able to fashion new therapies that are more specific to these genetic alterations and, therefore, less toxic.

Dr. Bergsagel says. "These mutations represent good targets for drug development," he says.
