REVIEW
Page Bertolotti, Amy Pierre, Sandra Rome, Beth Faiman
OBJECTIVE: To review disease-related symptoms and side effects of treatment in patients with multiple myeloma (MM). DATA SOURCES: Peer-reviewed articles, research studies, and clinical guidelines. CONCLUSION: New therapies provide patients with extended survival, but in many cases this benefit is counterbalanced by an increased incidence of side effects. Preservation of organ function, while managing side effects, is essential for the care of patients with MM...

REVIEW
Casey J Weaver, Joseph D Tariman
OBJECTIVES: This integrative review describes the genomic variants that have been found to be associated with poor prognosis in patients diagnosed with multiple myeloma (MM). Second, it identifies MM genetic and genomic changes using next-generation sequencing, specifically whole-genome sequencing or exome sequencing. DATA SOURCE: A search for peer-reviewed articles through PubMed, EBSCOhost, and DePaul WorldCat Libraries Worldwide yielded 33 articles that were included in the final analysis...

REVIEW
Hollie Devine, Daniel Verina
OBJECTIVE: To identify the salient issues of young adults (YAs) diagnosed with multiple myeloma (MM), a hematologic disease of older adults, that is rare in patients 19-40 years of age. DATA SOURCES: Peer-reviewed journal articles, case reports, single-institution series, and national guidelines. CONCLUSION: Compared to older adults with MM, YAs live longer and are at higher risk for survivorship-related issues, which include treatment adherence, infertility, reproductive concerns, risk of second primary cancers, treatment-related cardiotoxicity, and higher risk of non-cancer-related mortality...

REVIEW
Tracy A King, M T King, K J White
OBJECTIVE: To review the current state of evidence for the use of patient-reported outcomes (PROs) and health-related quality of life (HRQoL) in optimizing best supportive care for patients with multiple myeloma (MM). DATA SOURCES: Peer-reviewed journal articles, research reports, state of the science papers, and clinical guidelines. CONCLUSION: The diagnosis and treatment of MM negatively impacts an individual's HRQoL. Validated self-report tools that assess HRQoL and other PROs provide an insight into how the treatment or disease is impacting the individual, enabling early recognition of physical and emotional concerns...

REVIEW
Kevin Brigle, Barbara Rogers
OBJECTIVE: To understand the role of the genetic changes and bone marrow microenvironment on the development, progression, and staging of multiple myeloma (MM). DATA SOURCES: Peer-reviewed articles and clinical guidelines. CONCLUSION: The acquisition of genetic changes and the bone marrow microenvironment in which myeloma cells develop both influence the pathogenic potential of these malignant cells and is reflected in staging of the disease, risk of progression, and predicted response to treatment...

REVIEW
Mary Steinbach, Tiffany Richards, Beth Faiman
OBJECTIVE: To review the current evidence on strategies for selecting the optimal treatment for newly diagnosed patients with multiple myeloma (MM). DATA SOURCES: Journal articles, research reports, state of the science papers, and clinical practice guidelines. CONCLUSION: Despite the plethora of drugs to effectively treat MM, the optimal induction regimen for patients with newly diagnosed MM is unknown. Rapid control of the disease, appropriate treatment selection and effective supportive care strategies remain integral to prevention and management of the disease...

REVIEW
Kimberly Noonan, Kathleen Colson
OBJECTIVE: To review the current evidence on the use of immunomodulatory agents (IMiDs) and proteasome inhibitors (PIs) in the treatment of multiple myeloma (MM). DATA SOURCES: Journal articles, research reports, state of the science papers, and clinical guidelines. CONCLUSION: There has been a tremendous increase of new agents to treat multiple myeloma in the last 15 years. The IMiDs and PIs remain essential components of many anti-myeloma regimens...

OBJECTIVE: To review the current state of prostate cancer screening and future directions. DATA SOURCES: Nursing, medical and scientific literature related to prostate cancer screening, and national and international professional recommendations. CONCLUSION: Prostate cancer screening has been a topic of robust discussion for a number of years. Research continues to examine novel options for prostate cancer screening to either replace or compliment the prostate specific antigen test, but require additional validation before they will be widely accepted into clinical practice...

REVIEW
Cathy Coleman
OBJECTIVE: To review the history, current status, and future trends related to breast cancer screening. DATA SOURCES: Peer-reviewed articles, web sites, and textbooks. CONCLUSION: Breast cancer remains a complex, heterogeneous disease. Serial screening with mammography is the most effective method to detect early stage disease and decrease mortality. Although politics and economics may inhibit organized mammography screening programs in many countries, the judicious use of proficient clinical and self-breast examination can also identify small tumors leading to reduced morbidity...
