Newly Diagnosed Multiple Myeloma

Frequently Asked Questions

What is multiple myeloma?

  • Multiple myeloma is a blood cancer of plasma cells, a type of white blood cell which produces antibodies to help fight infection,2 and originates in bone marrow.11
  • People living with multiple myeloma might experience bone pain, fatigue, restlessness or weakness, confusion, infections, constipation, nausea and vomiting, excessive thirst, loss of appetite, and weight loss.12

How is multiple myeloma diagnosed?

  • It’s difficult to diagnose multiple myeloma early because it often causes no symptoms until it reaches an advanced stage. Sometimes, multiple myeloma might cause vague symptoms that at first seem to be caused by other diseases.13
     
  • Multiple myeloma can be found early when a routine blood test shows an abnormally high amount of protein in the blood.13
  • If symptoms suggest that a person might have multiple myeloma, more tests are done to confirm. These tests may include14 
      • Blood tests
      • Urine tests
      • Biopsy
  • A diagnosis requires a plasma cell tumor (proven by biopsy) OR at least 10% plasma cells in the bone marrow AND at least one of the following14:
      • High blood calcium level
      • Poor kidney function
      • Low red blood cell counts (anemia)
      • Holes in the bones from tumor found on imaging studies (CT, MRI, PET scan)
      • Increase in one type of light chain in the blood so that one type is 100 times more common than the other
      • 60% or more plasma cells in the bone marrow

What should I do if I think I have multiple myeloma?

  • If you suspect that you may have multiple myeloma, you will need to talk with your doctor about any symptoms you are having. Your doctor will conduct some additional tests to confirm if you have multiple myeloma.
  • If you are interested in learning more about multiple myeloma, getting answers to your questions, and finding support, visit the Resources page to find more information about the advocacy community.

I have multiple myeloma, but it is not relapsed/refractory. Do you have resources that will help me?

  • Even if you do not have relapsed/refractory multiple myeloma, there are still resources available to you. Visit the Resources page to find multiple myeloma advocacy groups that can help provide the support you need.

Oncopeptides, Inc. (“Oncopeptides”) is committed to protecting the privacy of users of the website located at www.myelomachannel.com or any website owned, operated, licensed or controlled by us (the “Website”). This Privacy Policy describes how we gather and use information about visitors to our Website (“Visitors”).  This Privacy Policy applies solely to the information that we collect through the Website.  This Privacy Policy does not address personal information that you provide to us in other contexts (e.g., through a business relationship not handled through the Website).

Acceptance of Privacy Policy

By using the Website, you signify your acceptance of this Privacy Policy. If you do not agree to the terms of this Privacy Policy, please do not use the Website. Your continued use of the Website following the posting of changes to these terms will mean that you accept those changes.

How Do We Collect Your Personal Information?

You may visit our Website without telling us anything about yourself. If you contact us and choose to provide personally identifiable information, such as your name, address, telephone number or e-mail address (“Personal Information”), we will use that information and may share it with other companies and/or individuals (e.g., our partners, consultants, and service providers) for the purpose for which you submitted it to us, such as to respond to your inquiry or to provide you with information that you requested. For example, you may contact us through the “Contact” page of the Website for information about (i) employment opportunities, (ii) product information, (iii) media inquiries, or (iv) business development inquiries.

From time to time, our Website may be configured to collect domain information. This data enables us to become more familiar with which users visit our site, how often they visit and what parts of the site they visit most often. Oncopeptides uses this information to improve our Website. No personally identifiable information is gathered in this process. This information is collected automatically and requires no action on your part.

If you do not wish to receive unsolicited emails or other communications from us, you may contact us at privacy@oncopeptides.com and request that your Personal Information be removed from our list.

Do We Disclose Any Personal Information to Outside Parties?

Unless you expressly give us permission in writing to do so, Oncopeptides will not sell, rent, license, or trade your Personal Information other than as specified in this Privacy Policy.

            Disclosures to Third Parties Assisting In Our Operations.  Oncopeptides may share your Personal Information under confidentiality agreements with other companies that work with, or on behalf of, Oncopeptides to provide products and services.  These companies may use your Personal Information to assist Oncopeptides in its operations.  However, these companies do not have any independent right to share this information.

            Disclosures Under Special Circumstances.  We may provide information about you to respond to subpoenas, court orders, legal process or governmental regulations, or to establish or exercise our legal rights or defend against legal claims.  We believe it is necessary to share information in order to investigate, prevent or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, or as otherwise required by law.  In such circumstances, we will take appropriate measures to ensure that the requester understands the sensitive nature of the Personal Information that they may receive.

            Business Transfers.  We may share your Personal Information with other business entities in connection with the sale, assignment, merger or other transfer of all or a portion of Oncopeptides’ business to such business entity.  We will require any such successor business entity to honor the terms of this Privacy Policy.

Automatically Collected Information and Anonymous Information

Each time a Visitor comes to the Website, Oncopeptides collects some information to improve the overall quality of the Visitor’s online experience.

            Aggregated Data.  Oncopeptides collects aggregate queries for internal reporting and also counts, tracks, and aggregates the Visitor’s activity into Oncopeptides’ analysis of general traffic-flow at the Website.  To these ends, Oncopeptides may merge information about you into aggregated group data.  In some cases, Oncopeptides may remove personal identifiers from Personal Information and maintain it in aggregate form that may later be combined with other information to generate anonymous, aggregated statistical information. Such anonymous, group data may be shared on an aggregated basis with Oncopeptides’ affiliates, business partners, service providers and/or vendors; if it does so, Oncopeptides will not disclose your individual identity.

            Web Server Logs and IP Addresses.  An Internet Protocol (“IP”) address is a number that automatically identifies the computer or device you have used to access the Internet. The IP address enables our server to send you the web pages that you want to visit, and it may disclose the server owned by your Internet Service Provider. Oncopeptides may use IP addresses to conduct Website analyses and performance reviews and to administer the Website.

            Cookies and Web Beacons.  Periodically, some pages on this Website may use “cookies,” which are small files that the site places on your hard drive for identification purposes. These files are used for site registration and customization the next time you visit us. You should note that cookies cannot read data off of your hard drive. Your web browser may allow you to be notified when you are receiving a cookie, giving you the choice to accept it or not. You can also refuse all cookies by turning them off in your browser. By not accepting cookies, some pages may not fully function and you may not be able to access certain information on this Website.  Information that we collect through cookies includes (i) the name and version of the operating system on the Visitor’s computer, (ii) the name and version of the Visitor’s browser, (iii) which page on the Site the Visitor is currently reading, as well as clicks and time spent on a particular page, (iv) if the Visitor was sent to the current page by some other page on the web, the universal resource locator (“URL”) of the referring web page, and (v) geolocation of the Visitor’s computer or device.  Some of the Site’s web pages may use web beacons in conjunction with cookies to compile aggregate statistics about Site usage.  A web beacon is an electronic image (also referred to as an “action tag,” “single-pixel,” or “clear GIF”) that is commonly used to track the traffic patterns of users from one web page to another in order to maximize web traffic flow and to otherwise analyze the effectiveness of the Website.  Some web beacons may be unusable if you elect to reject their associated cookies.

By accessing and using the Website, you expressly consent to the storage of cookies, other local storage technologies, beacons or other information on your computer or devices.  You also consent to the access of such cookies, local storage technologies, beacons and information by us.

Security

The security of your data is very important to Oncopeptides. We have implemented appropriate security measures preventing your Personal Information from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorized way, altered or disclosed. However, you should know that no web site operator, including Oncopeptides, can fully eliminate security risks associated with Personal Information. While Oncopeptides has endeavored to create a secure and reliable website for users, the confidentiality of any communication or material transmitted to/from the Website or via e-mail cannot be guaranteed.
