Outpatient Visitor Guidelines
Due to an increase in COVID-19 patients in Arkansas and across the country, UAMS is implementing new visiting policies for our clinics. Effective March 20, 2020, patients must come to their visit alone, unless there are special needs such as:
- Patients undergoing a procedure that requires a driver
- Minor patients
- Patients in a wheelchair who need assistance
Visitors must be 18 or older and pass a health screening before entering a UAMS building.
About Myeloma Center
The UAMS Myeloma Center is one of the largest centers in the world for research and clinical care related to myeloma and related disorders. Our success in treating multiple myeloma patients is based on the findings of our research program. Multiple myeloma is a type of cancer that affects the plasma cells. Nationwide, the median survival rate of patients with multiple myeloma is only about four years. But at our UAMS Myeloma Center, the survival rate is closer to eight or nine years, and many patients treated at our center are considered cured. Five-year survival rates at the Myeloma Center are greater than 65% — nearly twice the average of any other treatment facility.
Why UAMS is the Authority in Multiple Myeloma Therapies and Research
Many breakthroughs in therapies to treat myeloma have been accomplished at our center. UAMS was the first to:
- Use tandem bone marrow/peripheral blood stem cell transplants
- Perform transplants on an outpatient basis
- Safely transplant patients age 70 and above
- Introduce thalidomide as anti-angiogenesis therapy
- Identify myeloma subtypes based on gene expression profiling
- Design treatment regimens specific to disease subtype
The UAMS Myeloma Center sees more patients with myeloma and related diseases per year than any other institution in the world. On any given day, there are more than 200 myeloma patients staying in Little Rock for diagnosis and treatment. UAMS can offer hope to you and your family as you deal with a disease that is challenging to treat.
