WHAT IS THE SOAP STUDY?

The SOAP study is looking at the efficacy of COVID-19 vaccines in various cancers.

There is a specific sub-group about MDS led by King’s College Hospital, and we as MDS UK helped to recruit volunteers for it.

It is a small group of about 40 people – but will hopefully be robust enough to provide a good indication on how well the vaccine is working for MDS patients.

You can read more about SOAP on our website.

We will relay the initial results and the broad news in writing, on our website. We will also plan further meetings on this topic – as more data emerges.

Please – as ever – register to attend this meeting.

Hope many of you will join us.
