Clinical Trials

 

Clinical trials are the key to developing new treatments and a cure for multiple myeloma.  You may want to discuss with your doctor if this is a good option for you and consider participating.

 

                 "Clinical trials are essential to the advancement of medicine.

                  By participating in a trial, a patient may have access to a

                  treatment that is new or better than the standard treatment.  

                  By participating in a trial you are also helping others who

                  may benefit from the findings in the future.”

                                          -  American Society of Hematology, 2014
