Takeda Launches Largest Pharmaceutical Company-Sponsored Global Observational Study of Its Kind in Multiple Myeloma

Open-source, viagra collaborative study initiated to advance understanding of real-world experience with therapies and clinical outcomes in patients with newly diagnosed and relapsed/refractory multiple myeloma

Cambridge, Mass. and Osaka, Japan, August 31, 2016 – Takeda Pharmaceutical Company Limited (TSE: 4502) today announced that its global non-interventional, observational multiple myeloma study is now enrolling patients. Titled INSIGHT-MM, the study aims to enroll 5,000 patients over three years with a goal of following each patient for a minimum of five years in an effort to track patterns in disease presentation, patient characteristics, treatment and outcomes and thereby enhance the understanding of real world experience of patients with multiple myeloma.

“As both a physician and a patient, I have seen – and experienced – rapid changes in the approach to multiple myeloma treatment. Even with the recent introduction of new therapies, more work needs to be done to improve outcomes for patients across the globe,” said Jim Omel, M.D., INSIGHT-MM Steering Committee member, who was diagnosed with multiple myeloma in 1997. “The INSIGHT-MM study gives the community an opportunity to work together to better understand how clinical advances affect multiple myeloma patients in the real world.”
