Events: EHA Virtual Congress 2021 round up

June 21, 2021

EHA rapportWe were delighted that a Research Partnership study into the burden of illness in newly diagnosed Multiple Myeloma patients and their caregivers was selected by the European Hematology Association for an e-poster presentation at the EHA 2021 Virtual Congress earlier this month. The poster, which is entitled ‘The burden of a multiple myeloma diagnosis on patients and carers in the first year: Western European findings’ was authored by Market Access Director Brett Gardiner, Research Director Jenny Redfearn and Associate Director Victoria Spain, in partnership with Janssen Pharmaceuticals.


About our poster 

The burden of a multiple myeloma diagnosis on patients and carers in the first year: Western European findings
EHA PosterMultiple myeloma is the second most common haematological malignancy after leukaemia. Globally, its incidence increased by 126% between 1990 and 2016, and was the cause of 2.1 million disability adjusted life-year in 2016. Western Europe remains amongst the world regions with the highest age-standardised incidence rate.

Despite the increasing evidence that substantiates the considerable burden of newly diagnosed multiple myeloma, it remains unclear how various aspects of the disease interrelate to the impact on the health and economic outcomes of patients and carers, particularly in the first year after diagnosis.

To quantify the burden of illness, newly diagnosed multiple myeloma patients and their carers in 4 EU countries (France, Germany, Italy, Spain) were recruited to take part in a longitudinal observational study between January 2019 and January 2021.
