EVERY TIME I read an article about developing treatments ...and progress (or even lack thereof)... and clinical trials, I am THRILLED to feel a part of the process, as a participant in clinical trials.
Last year, at this time, I was taking three drugs (lenalidomide, dexamethasone, and ixazomib). This was a follow-up to an autologous stem cell transplant. At this time, I'm taking ixazomib, only. My ongoing tests have shown these drugs to have been....and continue to be.... quite effective. I'm not sure whether I can accurately claim CR, but I think I can. I, of course, do not know how my body (and the cancer therein) would have responded to non-trial treatment(s).
I am pleased to be a part of this, and prior studies. I am blessed to have received beneficial results. And I'm extremely hopeful that my participation will be helpful to many, many other multiple myeloma (and perhaps other?) patients, in the future.
Hello im new on the forum and to multiple myeloma. My husband and I have had the run around for 3 years; it shows up on CT Scan and negative for urine test. Plz give me some pointers as I am the caregiver and he is going thru it bad.
