Samaras, Panagiotis; Bargetzi, Mario; Betticher, Daniel C; Duchosal, Michel A; Heim, Dominik; Hess, Urs; Ketterer, Nicolas; Lerch, Erika; Matthes, Thomas; Mey, Ulrich; Pabst, Thomas; Taverna, Christian; Zander, Thilo; Renner, Christoph (2015). Current status and updated recommendations for diagnosis and treatment of plasma cell myeloma in Switzerland. Swiss Medical Weekly, 145:w14100.

Abstract

The availability of drugs such as thalidomide, bortezomib and lenalidomide changed the landscape in myeloma treatment and has extended the median survival up to 10 years with a substantial improvement in quality of life. This development prompted a Swiss expert panel to re-evaluate the current status and formulate updated clinical recommendations for the diagnosis and treatment of plasma cell myeloma. These recommendations should help clinicians in their decision making to achieve the best outcome based on currently available data.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
