Minimal Residual Disease (MRD) Chapter

Event Description

MRD (Minimal Residual Disease) is one of the strongest predictors of outcomes in blood cancers, including myeloma. While new treatments today are helping myeloma patients achieve complete responses, a small number of cancer cells can remain in your body and may cause your myeloma to return. Using highly sensitive tests like the clonoSEQ MRD tests to test results what cancer cells, if any, remain in your body after achieving a complete response is needed in order to asses therapy responses over time and be aware of what your myeloma status truly is.
