rable" responses with improved tolerability, even in patients who had stopped responding to either drug when used alone. The data presented this week showed a 100 percent response rate in newly diagnosed patients and a 68 percent response rate in relapsed patients.

"The number of options available to treat myeloma patients today is growing with positive results from mature studies, as well as preliminary results from smaller trials," said Brian G.M. Durie, M.D. chairman and co- founder of the IMF. "What we are learning from using these novel combinations in myeloma is so promising that our findings may become applicable to many malignancies including lung, ovarian and other cancers. The progress we've begun in myeloma is encouraging for all cancer patients around the world."

Myeloma, also called multiple myeloma, is a cancer of cells in the bone marrow that affects production of red cells, white cells and stem cells. It affects an estimated 750,000 people worldwide, and in industrialized countries it is being diagnosed in growing numbers and in increasingly younger people.
