Our research on myeloma

Thanks to research, survival from myeloma is improving all the time, and has quadrupled over the past 40 years. Today, a third of people will survive their disease for at least ten years, but we know we need to do better. Our researchers are working hard to save more lives, now and in the future.

Improving treatment for myeloma

Clinical trial research

Our researchers at UCL, led by Professor Kwee Yong, are running an important clinical trial testing a new combination of treatments for myeloma, which could one day help to save lives.
