Ohio State University Multiple Myeloma and Amyloidosis Data Registry and Sample Resource (B-SCR-MM)
The investigators are researching patients with diseases of their plasma cells in order to improve their quality and length of life. The investigators have created a database of patient information, blood samples, and bone marrow tissue in order to achieve the following three goals:
- Surveillance: The investigators want to track what treatments patients get or don't get, how effective they are, how they feel, what complications they suffer, how long they stay in remission, and how long they live.
- Contact: Because myeloma and amyloidosis are rare, less than 700 patients are diagnosed in the state of Ohio each year, patients often feel they don't have accurate information. The investigators want to provide them access to our clinical team (both phone and email consultations, even office visits for patients that can come to Columbus) as well as information regarding informational events pertaining to your disease and local support groups.
- Research: Because nearly all myeloma and amyloid patients relapse and treatment is eventually unsuccessful, our focus is to develop more effective treatments that not only prolong life, but cure the disease. Periodically the investigators will inform them about clinical trials studying new drugs or treatment paradigms.
Plasma Cell Dyscrasias
Monoclonal Gammopathy of Undetermined Significance
Procedure: tissue banking
|Study Type:||Observational [Patient Registry]|
|Study Design:||Observational Model: Cohort
Time Perspective: Prospective
|Target Follow-Up Duration:||10 Years|
|Official Title:||Buckeye Surveillance, Contact, and Research for Multiple Myeloma and Amyloidosis|
- Develop a data and sample resource that can be used to facilitate research with the ultimate goal of reducing the morbidity and/or mortality of patients diagnosed or living with Multiple Myeloma in the state of Ohio [ Time Frame: up to 3 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
- Surveillance [ Time Frame: up to 3 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]Establish a database of myeloma patients diagnosed or living in the state of Ohio to track myeloma disease course, patient reported outcomes, morbidity, and patient survival.
- Contact [ Time Frame: up to 3 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]Provide two-way communication with patients by providing information regarding multiple myeloma, local support groups, and standard of care procedures through active contact procedures
- Research [ Time Frame: up to 3 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]Offer patients, and occasionally spouses and family members, the opportunity to participate in tissue banking, observational, patient reported outcomes, and therapeutic clinical trials for their plasma cell dyscrasia.
|Study Start Date:||March 2011|
|Estimated Primary Completion Date:||March 2021 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
Procedure: tissue banking
The investigators propose to contact and interact with all patients with plasma cell dyscrasias in the State of Ohio (and all patients diagnosed or treated at Ohio State Medical Center) for both surveillance and research purposes in order to develop interventions targeted to decrease their morbidity and mortality.
