Treatment

The main aim of every tumour therapy is to largely suppress the disease. With multiple myeloma, a permanent cure is only possible for patients who are locally affected (extramedullary plasmacytoma, solitary plasmocytoma) and for younger patients following an allogenic (from another person) bone marrow transplantation. Apart from this, multiple myeloma is incurable with current treatment methods. The aim of the therapy is therefore the prolongation of life and optimisation of the quality of life.
