Oncology Consultations®: Collaborative Management of Ocular Toxicities in Patients with Relapsed/Refractory Multiple Myeloma

Release Date: June 30, 2021
Expiration Date: June 30, 2022

Activity Overview

The antibody-drug conjugate (ADC) belantamab mafodotin (belamaf) is used to treat relapsed/refractory multiple myeloma (R/R MM) that is refractory to immunomodulatory drugs (IMiD), proteasome inhibitors (PIs), and anti-CD38 mAb therapy, otherwise known as triple-class refractory myeloma. However, belamaf is also associated with frequent ocular adverse events that can cause symptoms such as blurry vision. Its administration requires a multidisciplinary approach that includes oncologists and eye care specialists, to monitor patients for ocular toxicities and adjust drug dosage when necessary. In this educational activity, an expert ophthalmologist and an oncologist review strategies to monitor, grade, and manage ocular toxicities associated with ADCs, and review how to apply collaborative strategies between specialties to best monitor and educate patients.
