Innovative Clinical Trials 
Wednesday, March 6, 2019
1:00 PM–2:00 PM (EST)
 
                                                                                                   
If you’ve never heard of “umbrella trials” or “platform trials,” you’re not alone. But these terms—used to describe different types of clinical trials—are defining the future of cancer research. These trials allow researchers to study several treatments at once. This is a marked contrast—and a significant advantage over—traditional clinical trials, which are able to test just one drug at a time. For patients with multiple myeloma, these new trial designs offer the prospect of making effective new drugs available more quickly.


With its launch of MyDRUG, the first ever multiple myeloma platform trial, the MMRF is leading the charge in this new research approach. Currently, MyDRUG has six treatment arms studying therapies designed to benefit patients with high-risk multiple myeloma.


This webinar has been developed to provide patients and caregivers with an overview of these new clinical trial types, further details on the MMRF’s groundbreaking MyDRUG study (and other novel clinical trials), and other essential information that will empower them to achieve the best possible outcome for their disease.
