Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a health condition that affects 1 in 10 women of childbearing age. Women with PCOS have a hormonal imbalance and metabolism problems that may lead to obesity, cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, infertility, endometrial cancer and more. In the absence of a complete cure, efficient management of the condition gains importance and information is the key. We are talking to a panel of PCOS experts from the University of Pennsylvania to understand the condition, available treatments, and best ways to manage symptoms. The discussion will also touch upon the details of the PCOS-COMET study being conducted by Penn PCOS Center to compare the effects of medications on metabolic risk factors such as weight, blood pressure, glucose, and cholesterol levels in overweight/obese women with Dr. Anuja Dokras, Director PCOS Center, and principal investigator of study. Dr. Anastassia Amaro and Dr. Kelly Costello Allison from the Center for Weight and Eating Disorder of University of Pennsylvania will help us take a deep dive to understand the nuances of weight, nutrition, psychology and related effects on PCOS and its management.

The treatment paradigm for myeloma patients has changed in the last decade with important advancements such as proteasome inhibitors, IMiDS, antibodies and risk-adapted maintenance. How a patient responds to therapy can be used to determine how long the maintenance or follow-up therapy should be. This is called risk-adapted therapy and personalizes myeloma care. The myeloma panel is talking to Dr. Sagar Lonial of Winship Cancer Institute of Emory University, to learn how he uses genetic and disease risk factors to personalize maintenance strategies after stem cell transplants for his patients with multiple myeloma.
