Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (2 months ago):

  • Hi, I am from India; was diagnosed with MM in Sep.2010-with D7 vertebral collapse/had APSCT in Mar.2011 ;on maintenance therapy since then, on Thalidomide first/shifted to Lenalidomide since Dec.2012 on thin discrete band seen in gamma globulin region in Immunofixation EP. My problem now is acquisition of TB (cervical)-category I , diagnosed in Nov.2013, along with periodical low blood counts-decrease in platelet/WBC etc .; I have been advised to stop maintenance therapy and proceed on ATT.
    There are now two different courses of treatment open to me–to take standard regimen of drugs as advised under DOTS or to adopt less stringent course, especially with omission of Rifampicin; which is the better option? anybody in the same boat?
