There are currently a range of novel and chemotherapy drugs and drug combinations available and in development for the treatment of myeloma. However, as myeloma is a complex and individual cancer, not every treatment is suitable for each patient.
To explore solutions to address this issue, Myeloma Patients Europe (MPE) is participating in Horizon 2020 MMPredict.
Funded by the European Commission, this is a multi-stakeholder, pan-European project, aiming to develop a personalised medicine tool to predict the most effective treatment strategy for individual myeloma patients.
To explain the main goals of MMPredict, MPE has filmed a video with some partners working in the project consortium:
- Erik Valent, Scientist and Junior Project leader, Skyline DX.
- Ken Redekop, PhD Associate Professor, Institute for Medical Technology Assessment, Erasmus Universiteti Rotterdam.
- Alessandra Laroca, MD, PhD Consultant Physician of the Division Haematology at the Department of Haematology-Oncology University Hospital Cittá della Scienza, Torino.
