Multiple myeloma is an incurable cancer of certain blood cells that often returns after treatment. To improve survival, researchers want to find ways to identify the disease earlier when it returns. A clinical trial led by Elizabeth M. Hill, M.D., Assistant Research Physician in the Lymphoid Malignancies Branch, is studying a radiotracer that may be a useful detection method for multiple myeloma. 

The trial will take place at the NIH Clinical Center in Bethesda, Maryland, and there is no cost for participation.
