OUR STUDY

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. 

OUR GOALS

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

Who can join and get screened at no cost?

2 groups of U.S. adults, age 40-75, qualify for a free screening:

1.  African Americans

AND / OR

2. People of Any Race Who Have a Parent, Sibling, or Child with: 

      Multiple myeloma OR one these related conditions: 

Please sign up for the study if you qualify.

 

Note: The PROMISE study is for people who may have higher risks,

but have not been diagnosed with any of these conditions. 

 

If you have been diagnosed with one of these conditions,  please visit our PCROWD study, a sister project for people with precursor conditions.  

?

Thank you for your interest in this mission.  We encourage anyone to invite people who may qualify for a screening.

We will check your blood sample for certain proteins that we call "precursor conditions" for  multiple myeloma - a type of blood cancer. 

We will notify all participants of their results.  Everyone who participates is helping researchers  find new ways to prevent and treat blood cancer.
