Description: Dr. William Bensinger, a myeloma expert from the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance, shares results from a study reported at the 2012 American Society of Hematology (ASH) annual meeting where an older drug, amifostine (Ethyol), was used in a new way to increase treatment response for multiple myeloma patients. As the lead investigator, Dr. Bensinger explains the positive outcome when testing this treatment regimen using higher doses of cancer-fighting agents while mitigating toxicity with a cytoprotective agent.
