An MPN clinical trials are studies that tests new ways to diagnose or treat MPN. Trials often use patients who have MPN because their condition can be reproduced, and there’s a high level of interest in learning more about it.
MPN stands for multiple myeloma, plasmacytoma, and neuroblastoma, three types of cancer-related diseases caused by plasma cell disorders. MPN affects both adults and children in all ethnic groups around the world.
How does this trial work?
The first step is that your doctor will refer you to an MPN clinic with which they are familiar if he thinks it would suit your needs. Once at the clinic, you’ll meet key members such as nurses, social workers, and dieticians who work together for best management practices (BMP). After this meeting, they may offer MPN treatment options based on your symptoms, overall health, and lifestyle.
The next step is going through an initial screening process where they’ll determine if you’re eligible for such studies based on your medical history and current state of health. This stage will involve blood tests, imaging scans like x-rays, and physical exams, which allow them to compare your results against others involved in the study.
