Summary

This trial will test how a special light treatment can help Multiple Myeloma patients with their sleep, inflammation and symptoms. 200 people will receive this light over a 2-month period.

Who is the study for?
This trial is for adults over 21 with multiple myeloma who are English-speaking and ready for their first autologous stem cell transplant. They must be able to consent to the study. Those pregnant, with eye diseases affecting light processing, other recent cancers, severe sleep or psychological disorders, history of bipolar/manic episodes, past light therapy use or active infections like COVID-19 cannot join.Check my eligibility
What is being tested?
The study tests two lighting conditions on circadian rhythm in multiple myeloma patients during stem cell transplantation. It aims to see if 'Circadian Effective Lighting' versus 'Circadian Ineffective Lighting' can improve sleep efficiency, melatonin levels in urine, reduce inflammation and symptom burden over two months.See study design
What are the potential side effects?
Since this trial involves lighting conditions rather than drugs or invasive procedures, side effects may include discomfort from the light settings or potential disruption of normal sleep patterns due to changes in exposure to certain types of artificial light.

Active Control
Placebo Group
Group I: Circadian Effective Lighting (CEL)Active Control1 Intervention
The CEL will be performed in hospital sites over a 2-month period.
Group II: Circadian Ineffective Lighting (CIL)Placebo Group1 Intervention
The comparator lighting will be performed identical to Arm 1, at specified lower levels of lighting.
