Abstract

An international myeloma meeting entitled "Challenging the current approaches to multiple myeloma- and other cancer-related bone diseases: from bisphosphonates to targeted therapy" was held in Freiburg, Germany in July 2011 to discuss novel insights into and approaches to myeloma bone disease and other bone-seeking tumors. This review briefly summarizes the most prominent data of the meeting and current literature on our understanding of bone disease, the role of imaging techniques, operative interventions and systemic bone-seeking treatment, all of which should further improve our future therapeutic choices.
