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
