Spring Edition of Myeloma Today: Stopping Myeloma in Its Tracks...and More


The latest issue of Myeloma Today is out with news about an exciting Black Swan Research Initiative study to prevent multiple myeloma before it develops. iStopMM (an acronym for Iceland Stops Treats or Prevents Multiple Myeloma), will examine the blood samples of 140,000 adults over the age of 40 in Iceland. The study will identify the earliest signs of myeloma in these adults, who will then participate in a clinical trial to attempt to stop progression of the disease. Also in this issue, the most promising clinical trials of 2016 and a primer on how the newest myeloma drugs can be used in treatment settings. For a dose of inspiration, check out highlights from Myeloma ACTION Month. To download this issue of Myeloma Today, click HERE.
