conversations podcast with Leo Dierckman
A Talk with a Patient Who Is Now MRD-Negative
In this podcast, IMF Chairman of the Board Dr. Brian G.M. Durie interviews myeloma patient Leo Dierckman, who is now MRD-negative. Leo was brave enough to enter into the ASCENT clinical trial, an aggressive treatment trial for the management of high-risk smoldering myeloma sponsored by the IMF Black Swan Research Initiative.® Leo has done incredibly well. After completing two full years of treatment (induction and consolidation, followed by maintenance), he has now been off all therapy for over a year and is — three years since the start of treatment — MRD-negative. His story of hope and optimism for a potential myeloma cure is not to be missed!
