Jun 4, 2015 · Video Q&A about Amyloidosis – What Patients Need to Know in Blood Cancers & Disorders

Yes, for future we will consider separate webinars. I am not aware of the spanish drug, will check into it. We really don’t know which treatment option will be best and that’s why we need the clinical trials. Many examples of clinicians and scientists being surprised one way or the other about results. The male predominance is fascinating, although we do see some women with WT ATTR. It may be that women do get the disease and it “looks different” so we don’t recognize it. There may be hormonal influences. This is an area of investigation and I agree that more research into gender differences may help us understand the cause and help develop treatment options.

Thanks for the input. It may take us a little while to get resources but hope to do these on a regular basis to update patients about treatment options.

Thanks to all who joined. To anonymous: we have a video specifically for wild-type TTR amyloid and will release that on the Mayo Clinic you tube channel soon.
I notice that in the introduction I may have had a Freudian slip and introduced myself as a hematologist, but really I am a cardiologist!

Thank you for your question. Many things could be causing your husband’s symptoms and it would be best to review these with one of his health care providers, either a primary care or cardiology provider. Medications sometimes could cause these symptoms, but it’s important not to stop medications without checking with a health care provider. With recent heart stent placement it is particularly important to continue aspirin and other anti-platelet medications, such as clopidogrel (plavix).
