What are the different types of medications used to treat multiple myeloma?

  • Chemotherapy drugs like cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, and melphalan are commonly used.

  • Targeted therapies including monoclonal antibodies (daratumumab, elotuzumab) and proteasome inhibitors (bortezomib, carfilzomib) attack myeloma cells specifically.

  • Other medications like histone deacetylase (HDAC) inhibitors and selinexor may be used in certain cases.
