The changing definition of complete remission in multiple myeloma

Carlos Fernandez de Larrea, MD, PhD from the Hospital Clínic de Barcelona, Barcelona, Spain discusses the definition of complete remission (CR) in multiple myeloma (MM). The current definiton of CR requires a negative serum and urine immunofixation electrophoresis (IFE) and less than 5% bone marrow plasma cells (BMPCs). However, two-thirds of patients with CR still relapse and the aim is to be able to identify those patients who are really cured.
