What is the PROMISE Study?
The PROMISE study is the biggest myeloma screening study ever run to help prevent the blood cancer from occurring by catching it at an early stage. Supported by a $10M Stand Up 2 Cancer award, the study will include patients over the age of 45 with family members of MGUS, smoldering myeloma, multiple myeloma or Waldenstrom’s patients and African American patients, who are 3 times as likely to develop multiple myeloma. See more about joining the PROMISE Study.
