Real-World Mapping Antithrombotic Regimens in MM Patients on Treatment

Study Purpose

The goal of this observational study is to learn about antithrombotic regimens in Multiple myeloma patients. The main question it aims to answer is the efficacy of different types of thromboprophylaxis (antiplatelet agents, heparins, oral anticoagulants) in preventing venous thromboembolism (VTE).

Recruitment Criteria

Accepts Healthy Volunteers

Healthy volunteers are participants who do not have a disease or condition, or related conditions or symptoms

Study Type

An interventional clinical study is where participants are assigned to receive one or more interventions (or no intervention) so that researchers can evaluate the effects of the interventions on biomedical or health-related outcomes.

An observational clinical study is where participants identified as belonging to study groups are assessed for biomedical or health outcomes.

Searching Both is inclusive of interventional and observational studies.

Trial ID:

This trial id was obtained from, a service of the U.S. National Institutes of Health, providing information on publicly and privately supported clinical studies of human participants with locations in all 50 States and in 196 countries.


Phase 1: Studies that emphasize safety and how the drug is metabolized and excreted in humans.

Phase 2: Studies that gather preliminary data on effectiveness (whether the drug works in people who have a certain disease or condition) and additional safety data.

Phase 3: Studies that gather more information about safety and effectiveness by studying different populations and different dosages and by using the drug in combination with other drugs.

Phase 4: Studies occurring after FDA has approved a drug for marketing, efficacy, or optimal use.

Additional Details

This is an observational prospective cohort study aimed at assessing the efficacy of different types of thromboprophylaxis in MM patients; the setting is the GIMEMA network of the Italian haematological Centers. The observation time for each patient will be of 3 years from the start of the active treatment for MM. Patients will remain in the study regardless of the stage of disease, type of treatment (induction, transplantation, maintenance), type of antithrombotic prophylaxis, occurrence of thrombosis. Four cohorts will be identified: cohort 1 will include patients without thromboprophylaxis, cohort 2 will include patients receiving antiplatelet agents, cohort 3 will include patients receiving heparins, and cohort 4 will include patients receiving oral anticoagulants.
