Our aim

The consortium aims to commercialise the MMpredictor as a personalised medicine tool that predicts the most effective treatment strategy for individual Multiple Myeloma (MM) patients. MM is the second most common form of blood cancer contributing to 15% of all blood cancers and ~1,5% and 2% of all cancer deaths annually in the EU and US, respectively. Patients show a large variability in treatment response and side effects due to tumour heterogeneity and the patient’s intrinsic characteristics.

Therefore, not every treatment will be suitable for each patient, and treatment strategies are often based on trial-and-error. The availability of multiple (>20) treatment options complicates treatment decision-making even more. With the current development of many more promising treatments, there is an urgent unmet clinical need for a diagnostic assay that supports personalised cancer treatment in order to improve patient health outcomes, prevent side effects and reduce healthcare costs.

 

MMpredictor enables personalised medicine strategies: based on genetic subtypes (biomarker combinations) the most optimal treatment method for each MM patients can be selected (from: MD Anderson Cancer Center).
