A hallmark of the Myeloma Institute for Research and Therapy (MIRT) is a program of clinical trials that challenge the traditional body of thought on disease treatment in order to improve outcomes. The physicians at the Myeloma Institute work in tandem with myeloma scientists to bring the “bench of research to the bedside of the patient” and back again to optimize diagnosis and treatments.
The “Total Therapy” approach to the treatment of multiple myeloma, with its focus on attacking myeloma from all fronts, has been at the core of successful outcomes at MIRT. Starting with the Total Therapy 1 clinical trial in 1989, outcomes have continued to improve through the incorporation of new agents and adjustments in pre-transplant consolidation and post-transplant maintenance phases of care.
The Myeloma Institute partners with SWOG (formerly the Southwest Oncology Group) on collaborative, multi-center clinical trials, and also participates in pharmaceutical industry trials in order to give patients access to some of the latest pharmaceutical advances.
