Myeloma bone disease

Abstract

Skeletal complications are a major problem for patients affected by cancers which metastasize to or grow primarily within bone [1]. As advancements in chemotherapeutic regimens have led to progressive lifespan extension in patients with malignancies, efforts to limit both cancer-associated and treatment-associated skeletal complications have become increasingly important for the provision of optimal patient care.
