Identifying the Role of Inflammatory Cytokines in Symptom Production in Multiple Myeloma
If you agree to take part in this study, you will complete 4 questionnaires during a
regularly schedule clinic visit. These questionnaires will measure pain and other symptoms,
such as your mood and quality of life. You will also be asked to give a tissue sample by
inserting a swab into your mouth and rubbing firmly against the inside of your cheek or
underneath your lower or upper lip for about a minute at most. Completing the 5
questionnaires and the swab sample collection takes about 30 minutes in total.
Length of Study:
After you have completed the 5 questionnaires and the swab sample collection, your
participation in this study will be over.
This is an investigational study.
Up to 500 patients will take part in the cross-sectional phase of this study. All will be
enrolled at MD Anderson.
