Event Description

Brian McMahon CEO and Founder, SparkCures Interview Date: December 6, 2015 

 

Summary Clinical trials are the way that newer and better treatments are brought to multiple myeloma patients, but finding one that's right for you can be completely overhwhelming. Brian McMahon's mother died of an aggressive form of multiple myeloma and he has dedicated his life to help myeloma patients find a cure for this disease. Normally, patients search the never ending maze of www.clinicaltrials.gov to find a trial, but on average, the results list are in the hundreds. Really? How do you choose your optimal treatment? With his new tool, SparkCures, the number of trials that are personally relevant can reduced to a more manageable number (like 10-15) that you can then discuss with your doctor. ALL myeloma patients should consider clinical trials. They are not last-ditch attempts, but are comparing the "standard of care" with something much better. Learn more about how this product was created just for myeloma patients and how you can use it to plan ahead for your myeloma care.  Perform a Search on SparkCures The Myeloma Crowd Radio Show With Brian McMahon of SparkCures.
