September: Blood Cancer Awareness Month
There are three major types of blood cancer: leukemia, lymphoma and multiple myeloma.
Blood cancer is rare and hard to diagnose. This is why many patients are left untreated during early stages of the disease. Symptoms may include: chest pain, fever, frequent infections and overall weakness.
Yearly, about 1 000 000 people worldwide are diagnosed with blood cancer.
Global Clinical Trials has successfully conducted several Phase II and Phase III studies in Lymphoma, and is familiar with the challenges blood cancer poses. We would like to use this opportunity to spread awareness about this group of diseases, and we hope that the diagnosis and treatments methods become more effective and precise very soon.
