The role of allogeneic stem cell transplantation is evolving in the paradigm of myeloma treatment. Despite its therapeutic potential of a myeloma cure, the use of donor stem cell transplantation or allogeneic transplantation is highly debated in the medical field due to the safety risks and rate of relapse. We are talking to Dr. Komanduri to better understand allogeneic transplants, optimal timing and how to manage graft-versus-myeloma effect for improved efficacy and safety.
Dr. Komanduri is Medical Director of the hematopoietic stem cell transplant program at the University of Miami Sylvester Cancer Center, one of the fastest growing programs in the country.

Being born with hypoplastic left heart syndrome, or HLHS, over 2 decades ago meant a very uncertain future. Back then most of the children born with HLHS didn't survive. Only a handful made it to age 5 and naturally, as time went on more and more of our Survivors had hearts that began to fail or have problems requiring extra medications or pacemakers or extra surgeries -- some even needing heart transplants to survive. Today we have a handful of Survivors who have made it to their mid-twenties or beyond. Today's show features one such survivor.
Tune in to hear Myles Schweitzer share his advice and stories about how he seizes the day. As a 25-year-old HLHS Survivor, he is exceptional and I'm sure when you hear his story, you'll be inspired.
