December 2016 Vol 9, Special Issue: Payers’ Perspectives In Oncology: AVBCC 2016 Highlights - Conference Correspondent
Washington, DC—With tremendous changes occurring in healthcare and particularly in oncology, discussion about the current trends and demands facing stakeholders in optimizing value in cancer care dominated the Sixth Annual Conference of the Association for Value-Based Cancer Care, held September 27-29, 2016, and co-chaired by Michael Kolodziej, MD, National Medical Director, Managed Care Strategy, Flatiron Health, New York, NY; and Burt Zweigenhaft, BS, President, National Association of Specialty Pharmacy; and Editor-in-Chief, Value-Based Cancer Care.
Evaluation of Minimal Residual Disease in Relapsed/Refractory Multiple Myeloma Patients Treated with a Daratumumab-Based Regimen
In this analysis, researchers evaluate whether daratumumab can further reduce minimal residual disease when added to lenalidomide- and bortezomib-containing regimens in patients with relapsed/refractory multiple myeloma.
Meta-Analysis to Compare Efficacy of Treatment Regimens for Relapsed/Refractory Multiple Myeloma Patients
Phase II Study of Lenalidomide, Subcutaneous Bortezomib, and Dexamethasone (RsqVD) in Newly Diagnosed Multiple Myeloma
In an effort to determine whether lower peripheral neuropathy rates could be achieved, this study evaluated the efficacy and safety of subcutaneous bortezomib in combination with lenalidomide and dexamethasone in patients with newly diagnosed multiple myeloma.
Budget Impact Analysis of Elotuzumab in Combination with Lenalidomide and Dexamethasone for Relapsed/Refractory Multiple Myeloma
Payers have expressed concern about the rising costs of combination therapies in multiple myeloma. In an effort to address these potential concerns, a budget impact model was developed to estimate the 3-year costs of adding elotuzumab in combination with lenalidomide and dexamethasone to a health plan’s formulary.
A New Risk Stratification Tool to Estimate Survival in Patients with Multiple Myeloma After First Relapse
Risk stratification tools are used to estimate survival expectations and help to guide treatment decisions after first relapse in multiple myeloma. European researchers have developed a new stratification tool consisting of 4 distinct dimensions that are used to characterize risk of survival.
Pembrolizumab in Combination with Pomalidomide and Dexamethasone for Relapsed/Refractory Multiple Myeloma
Immunotherapy is being studied as a potential treatment approach in a variety of hematologic malignancies. Here, researchers present the findings of a phase 2 trial evaluating pembrolizumab in combination with pomalidomide and dexamethasone in patients with relapsed/refractory multiple myeloma.
Unmet treatment needs remain in multiple myeloma, particularly among patients with relapsed/refractory disease who have received multiple lines of therapy. This study evaluates a potential salvage approach of daratumumab-based retreatment in patients refractory to daratumumab and/or pomalidomide.
PREAMBLE (Prospective Research Assessment in Multiple Myeloma: An Observational Evaluation) is an ongoing multinational observational study being conducted to evaluate real-world outcomes in patients with multiple myeloma. Here, researchers present preliminary efficacy analyses in patients with one line of prior therapy.
