The Binding Site Fosters Discussion of Common, but Often Missed, Symptoms of Multiple Myeloma

Share Article

In this webinar, which LabRoots will host September 21, attendees will learn the value of early diagnosis and clinical complications of a delay in diagnosis.

Ola Landgren, M.D., Ph.D. Professor of Medicine & Chief of Multiple Service at Memorial Sloan-Kettering in New York City

Primary care physicians see more than 50 percent of myeloma patients with early symptoms, and early identification and diagnosis are essential to starting earlier treatment for multiple myeloma patients and preventing secondary complications. Participants of the webinar will learn to recognize the symptoms that myeloma patients first present to their internal medicine/family physician. They will be able to more accurately identify which lab tests are guideline-recommended for initial testing of myeloma.

The team at The Binding Site has arranged for Dr. Ola Landgren, a professor of medicine & chief of Multiple Service at Memorial Sloan-Kettering in New York City, to be the speaker for this event.

As a board-certified hematologist-oncologist Landgren will review how vague symptoms, including fatigue, bone pain, and back pain, are linked to the possibility of underlying Multiple Myeloma and what guideline-recommended tests should be used for diagnosis.

Dr. Ola Landgren is one of the world leaders in the field of early treatment strategies and molecular- and cell-based monitoring of minimal residual disease detection in Multiple Myeloma and its precursor states. As part of his ongoing research program, he is studying molecular mechanisms underlying the trajectory from precursor to full-blown Multiple Myeloma with the goal to develop treatment strategies aiming to delay, prevent, and ultimately define a cure for Multiple Myeloma.

LabRoots will host the webinar event September 21, 2017, beginning at 8:00 a.m. PDT. To learn more about the webinar, discover the continuing education credits offered, or to register for free, click here.
