Myeloma SPORE

The DF/HCC SPORE in multiple myeloma (Myeloma SPORE) is a key component of the DF/HCC program to find new treatments for multiple myeloma. This cancer of the blood-forming tissues affects 14,000 new individuals in the United States each year, with 50,000 total patients, and remains incurable despite conventional and high-dose therapies. Among the six collaborative projects underway is an effort to identify the genes involved and develop appropriate target drugs to prevent or delay disease progression.
