I just wrote an article about amyloidosis: Progress Being Made Against Amyloidosis on our Help With Cancer.Org site.
Since as many as 15% of multiple myeloma patients are also forced to deal with an amyloidosis diagnosis, I thought my regular readers of this blog might be interested.
I find it fascinating how similarly the two diseases react to the same medications. Both Velcade and Revlimid are being used successfully in combinations, just like myeloma. Once amyloidosis progresses, life expectancy numbers are eerily similar as well.
Feel good and keep smiling! Pat
