Predicting Progression of Developing Myeloma in a High-Risk Screened Population (PROMISE)



THE PROMISE study is the first study to test healthy people who may be at risk for early warning signs of a blood cancer called multiple myeloma.

We will further study people who test positive for these early warning signs of multiple myeloma so that we can learn how to prevent them from developing into cancer.


This study aims to make multiple myeloma a cancer that is preventable.
