Get “Camp-y” with the IMF This Summer
This summer, the IMF staff has geared up to challenge ourselves. IMF staff member Karla Lemus promises to run 3 miles for every $25 she raises. Karla has already raised $935.00. Run Karla, run! Now, we are asking YOU if you will accept the same challenge. You can choose any virtual camp challenge you’d like. For example, maybe for every $10 you raise for the IMF, you’ll commit to doing one push-up. Then, create your virtual fundraiser for the International Myeloma Foundation on Facebook. Use the #CAMPIMF hashtag in the title of your fundraiser so we can invite you to our official CAMP IMF Facebook Group. Visit the IMF Facebook page now to learn more!

Learn More About Recently Approved Sarclisa and the Phase III IKEMA Trial
The IKEMA trial was a phase III study of patients with relapsed refractory multiple myeloma who had undergone 1-3 prior lines of therapy. It compared the combination of Sarclisa (isatuximab), Kyprolis (carfilzomib), and dexamethasone (Isa-Kd) to the combination of Kyprolis and dexamethasone (Kd). In this video, IMF Chief Medical Officer Dr. Joseph Mikhael (TGen, City of Hope — Phoenix) explains the methods, results, and conclusion of an interim analysis of the IKEMA study.
