Clinical trials are an important part of the research process, contributing to the advancement of treatments for multiple myeloma and other cancers. Thanks to the progress made through multiple myeloma clinical trials, many patients with multiple myeloma are now living longer. Greater participation from patients, clinicians, and researchers is the key to improving the quality and longevity of life of those currently suffering from multiple myeloma. Ultimately, this is the path to a cure for multiple myeloma.
The MMRC encourages patients to identify their clinical trial options (and review them with their doctors) each time they have to make a treatment decision.
The MMRF Patient Navigator Program is designed to help patients find clinical trials that are appropriate for them. The program is a personalized matching and referral service to help patients quickly and easily search for clinical trial options that match their specific diagnosis and treatment history. Patients can also check our listing of current trials to find suitable options.
After finding a clinical trial, patients have the opportunity to contact the assigned clinical trial investigator. The MMRF Patient Navigator Program also helps simplify the process by helping patients draft an e-mail to send to the cancer center.
