For five decades now, our cooperative group, the ALLG has been bringing together blood cancer experts from across Australia and New Zealand to volunteer their time and run clinical trials to change the way blood cancers – leukaemia, lymphoma and myeloma, – are treated. Our not-for-profit has contributed to what are now standard treatments for some blood cancers and continues to drive change for greater access to new and more effective therapies for patients.

If you are interested in participating in a clinical trial, speak with you doctor and visit ALLG’s Current Clinical Trials list and see Frequently Asked Questions about participating in a clinical trial and learn more here about getting involved in clinical trial research.
