The goal of this trial is to see whether a test based on a new technology which assesses tumor cell mass accumulation rate (MAR) can help to predict how patients with relapsed/refractory disease will respond to multiple myeloma treatments.
This trial is open but patient recruitment is temporarily on hold.
Researchers are asking patients who participate in this clinical trial to provide an approximately 10mL (2 teaspoons) bone marrow sample. This sample will be collected at a time when a bone marrow biopsy is already being performed as part of your standard of care treatment and will not require an additional procedure. This study has two groups, also called cohorts. Each cohort will provide the same volume of a one-time bone marrow sample.
Researchers are also requesting access to your medical information and myeloma treatment history. This data will be de-identified, and securely stored.
If you agree to take part in this study, there will be no direct medical benefit or additional costs to you.
You and your physician will not be informed of the results of the tests on your tumor cells at the time your physician is deciding on your treatment as the accuracy of this test is not yet proven. Proving the value of this this test is the purpose of this study. The testingprocedure is not a treatment. There is no benefit to participating in this part of the study except for the satisfaction of contributing to scientific knowledge. We hope the information learned from this study will benefit other people with multiple myeloma in the future.
