A Prospective, Longitudinal, Observational Study in Newly Diagnosed Multiple Myeloma (MM) Patients to Assess the Relationship between Patient Outcomes, Treatment Regimens and Molecular Profiles

Study Status

Open to Enrollment

Study Description

This research study is for newly diagnosed multiple myeloma patients who are candidates for systemic therapy that includes an IMiD (for example, lenalidomide, pomalidomide or thalidomide) and/or a proteasome inhibitor (for example, bortezomib, carfilzomib) but who have not yet started treatment. Patients who have already started treatment for myeloma are not eligible for this study.

The purpose of this study is to collect, store and analyze blood and bone marrow samples and health information from newly diagnosed multiple myeloma patients at the time of diagnosis and then at different time points during their disease. There are no drug treatments being given as part of this study.

The study is being conducted because we hope that having a better understanding of multiple myeloma will allow the development of more effective drugs with fewer side effects for patients with myeloma.

On study, participants will undergo procedures for the collection of blood and bone marrow samples. Participants will be in the study for approximately 5 years, and possibly longer.
