Significant changes have been made to lives of patients with blood cancer.
"Significant changes have been made to lives of patients with blood cancer. There was a patient who failed everything – bone marrow transplant and chemotherapy – and almost lost her life. But she went on to trials, and she is still alive today. That drives home the message of the importance of having access to novel agents and trials. You never know what is going to be the next breakthrough."
