Treatments and Therapies for Bone Marrow Cancer

Treatment for multiple myeloma typically involves chemotherapy, radiation or stem cell transplants, with the goal of remission. Different treatments work differently from patient to patient. Your Norton Cancer Institute oncologist will work closely with you to determine the best course of treatment and walk you through the pros and cons of each.

Explore Multiple Myeloma Clinical Trials

In addition to our current leading-edge treatments, Norton Cancer Institute gives our myeloma patients the opportunity to participate in innovative National Cancer Institute- and industry-sponsored clinical research studies. These trials help to improve current cancer treatments, in addition to finding new and promising solutions.

See our current list of myeloma clinical trials or call (502) 629-3449 for additional options and participation information.
