Research

Dr. Bhutani’s research is in the development of novel therapies for Multiple Myeloma and studying the complications of stem cell transplantation. Dr. Bhutani has published multiple original articles in peer reviewed journals and presented his work at national meetings including American Society of Hematology and American Society of Clinical Oncology. While at Karmanos Cancer Institute, Dr. Bhutani received a grant to conduct an investigator initiated prospective trial studying, Selinexor in patients with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma and an American Cancer Society grant to study the role of B lymphocytes in acute graft versus host disease. Currently, Dr. Bhutani is conducting two investigator initiated prospective clinical trials at Herbert Irving Comprehensive Cancer Center. One of the trials is evaluating the use of CD38 antibody (Isatuximab) in patients with Monoclonal Gammopathy of Renal Significance. The second trial is going to evaluate the use of Isatuximab to alter immune microenvironment in patients undergoing autologous stem cell transplantation for Multiple Myeloma or Lymphoma.

Dr. Bhutani is an active member of national cooperative group called Southwest Oncology Group (SWOG). Through SWOG, he is a principal investigator on a prospective trial (S2005) evaluating the use of Venetoclax in patients with Waldenstrom’s Macroglobulinemia. In addition, he is currently developing a trial trough SWOG, using anti-amyloid antibody CAEL-101 in patients with renal AL Amyloidosis.
