Multiple myeloma is a hematologic cancer that develops in the marrow of the long bones. Researchers are working toward a cure, and this new e-book provides them with a basic foundation of how the disease is approached in the real world. Features of the guide include:
- How multiple myeloma is diagnosed
- The different types of multiple myeloma
- Labwork results of typical multiple myeloma patients in different stages
- Treatments and side effects
Furthermore, the e-book also details the challenges faced when studying multiple myeloma, including obtaining quality bone marrow and blood samples that are integral for research.
"Researchers will benefit from this e-book when they are developing the criteria and parameters of their multiple myeloma research," says Luke Doiron, Chief Commercial Officer of Conversant Bio. "They will gain a new perspective on the disease that is outside the scope of the lab. And if they are in need of high-quality bone marrow and blood samples for their research, they can achieve access to such samples through Conversant Bio"
