Why this focus on Multiple Myeloma?
Each year worldwide more than 115,000 people are newly diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma, a type of blood cancer that develops from plasma cells in bone marrow. Recent advances in treatment mean that survival rates have significantly improved to between 5 and 9 years. However with time patients relapse as treatments fail to work over the long term meaning that for most patients the disease remains incurable. Over 220 people still die each day from Multiple Myeloma – the equivalent of 1 to 2% of all cancer related deaths in Western countries.
