PREDICTING INFECTIONS IN CANCER OF THE PLASMA CELLS IN BONE MARROW (MYELOMA)

Grant number: 1074391 | Funding period: 2014 - 2016

Completed

Abstract

The study will look for new risks for infection in patients with multiple myeloma, a cancer of plasma cells in the bone marrow. Currently these patients are expected to live longer because of the discovery and use of new generation cancer drugs. By finding new infection risks, the treatment of life threatening infections can be improved or infection can be prevented so patients have a better quality of life whilst on cancer treatment.
