Newton’s Story

In 2007, Buckinghamshire resident Newton experienced severe back pain which led to a diagnosis of myeloma. After treatment, Newton was transferred to a clinical trial.

This Myeloma Awareness Week, Newton wants to raise awareness of the importance of clinical trials and their role in finding new and innovative treatments for myeloma.

What is a clinical trial?

A clinical trial is a type of research investigation which myeloma patients voluntarily take part in. Clinical trials test new ways to treat and care for patients, with new drugs or combinations of current treatments. If a myeloma patient is considering taking part in a clinical trial, they should first speak to their doctor.
