Info on Kyprolis Very Very Prommising Drug

Hello readers and Fellow Fighters
Finally found some info on this drug that has been around in the US but not available in Canada yet. Not even mentioned anywhere in Canada yet. We need to do something about this!
Read on:
Now, this ambitious biotech is going after an expanded indication for Kyprolis for first-line treatment of refractory multiple myeloma.  Based on data from a phase III study, patients whose treatment regimens included Kyprolis had an average of 18.7 months of progression-free survival---about twice as much as patients whose regimens included Velcade, the current treatment standard manufactured by Takeda and Johnson & Johnson.
Analysts suspect that Kyprolis has a good shot of gaining FDA approval for first-line treatment, because the FDA tends to look favorably upon progression-free survival data. However, the story is different in the EU, where the focus tends to be on overall survival.
Thanks for reading

Milestone reached 12 years Surviving and Fighting Multiple #Myeloma

Well here we are. Made it! 12 year mark is here. What a long battle. But I'm still winning!

It's been a pretty tough year so far being on Revlimid/Dex protocol but not worst than any other protocol I've been through. The only important thing today is that I've broken the 12 year barrier and I am mighty proud of the achievement. Still there for my beautiful 24 years old Daughter and living life as the best I can.

Made lots of friends with MM through Social Media and trying to help to the best of my knowledge acquired through the years. And they are helping me too with their inspiring journey with MM.

This post won't be very long as my new friend Dyslexia is slowing down my typing ability. But I have acquired a Talk to Text software (got the CD yesterday) that will help me alot. Took me 1/2 hour to type this. So please bare with me I will post again as soon as I can.

In the meantime......Keep Fighting!
