CoMMpass from the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation

cancer genomic


The Relating Clinical Outcomes in Multiple Myeloma to Personal Assessment of Genetic Profile study is the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation (MMRF)’s landmark personalized medicine initiative. CoMMpass is a longitudinal observation study of around 1000 newly diagnosed myeloma patients receiving various standard approved treatments. The MMRF’s vision is to track the treatment and results for each CoMMpass patient so that someday the information can be used to guide decisions for newly diagnosed patients. CoMMpass checked on patients every 6 months for 8 years, collecting tissue samples, genetic, information, quality of life and various disease and clinical outcomes. The study has produced one of the largest genomic and clinical datasets of a single disease.
