Proposed trial


Information on proposed patient trail to test vitamin B12 as a treatment for MGUS

Survive Cancer is hoping to raise money to run a small patient trial to test Dr Carmen Wheatley's hypothesis, which will test vitamin B12 in the treatment of MGUS, the pre-cancer stage, from which 1 out of 4 patients can be expected to progress to Multiple Myeloma, or other related conditions, such as Waldenstrom's, Chronic Lymphocytic Leukaemia, Myelodysplastic Syndrome, Macroglobulinaemia, Myelofibrosis, Polycythaemia/Vera/Rubra, Essential Thrombocythaemia, and certain lymphomas, such as Lymphocytic Lymphoma.

If and when the money is in place and we have the go ahead, anyone wishing to take part in the trial will be able to contact the participating hospital nearest to them. If you wish us to contact you directly about this, please leave your details. We have published the current protocol, see link (which may be revised before the trial takes place), and we will keep you informed on this site about our progress in setting up the trial.

Depending on the results of this patient trial to test vitamin B12 in the treatment of MGUS, the charity plans to do a follow-up trial to test vitamin B12 in the treatment of Multiple Myeloma.
