Research Study for the Possible Treatment of High-Risk Smoldering Multiple Myeloma

NIH Study Needs People With High-Risk Smoldering Multiple Myeloma

The current standard of care for people with smoldering multiple myeloma (SMM) has been to wait and watch for signs of disease progression to multiple myeloma (a cancer of the plasma cells). Multiple myeloma brings with it complications of bone fractures, low blood counts, high calcium levels and kidney problems. Do you want to do more than watchful waiting? Researchers at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) National Cancer Institute (NCI) do!

NCI researchers are investigating the use of the combination of Carfilzomib, Lenalidomide, and Dexamethasone against smoldering multiple myeloma. They aim to see how safe and effective these drugs can be in treating high-risk smoldering multiple myeloma.
