"Many": Myeloma and other plasma cell dyscrasia treatments has evolved from standard cytotoxic approaches (eg mp, vad, hypercvad) to "novel" therapies. Immunomodulatory drugs (imids) - eg thalidomide, lenalolidomide, pomalidomide proteasome inhibitors - eg, bortezomib, carfilzomib, etc other: hsp90 inhibitors, hdaci, b-raf, etc. Over the last few years multiple new drugs have been approved for myeloma.
