Abstract

Multiple myeloma is a cancer of the red bone marrow and despite modern treatments, such as high dose chemotherapy and stem cell transplants, it remains incurable with a median survival of between three to four years (Hoffbrand et al 2001, Bradwell 2003). The aim of this article is to increase awareness and understanding of this relatively unknown cancer.
