iStopMM (Iceland Screens, Treats, or Prevents Multiple Myeloma)
In this video, Dr. Sigurdur Kristinsson of the University of Iceland describes the exciting new Black Swan Research Initiative® study, iStopMM (Iceland Screens, Treats, or Prevents Multiple Myeloma). As part of the iStopMM study, 140,000 Icelanders over the age of 40 will have their blood samples tested for the precursor to multiple myeloma, or MGUS (monoclonal gammopathy of undetermined significance). If they test for MGUS, they are given the option to take part in a randomized clinical trial to treat or prevent the progression of MM. Dr. Kristinsson explains the four aims of this groundbreaking study in this video.
