Daniel AuClair, PhD, Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation, Norwalk, CT, shares details of an analysis of the impact of measurable residual disease (MRD) by multiparameter flow cytometry (MFC) and next-generation sequencing (NGS) on survival outcomes in the FORTE trial (NCT02203643) of multiple myeloma patients. Patients were treated with carfilzomib-lenalidomide-dexamethasone (KRd) or carfilzomib-cyclophosphamide-dexamethasone (KCd) induction therapy prior to autologous stem-cell transplantation, or 12 cycles of KRd only. Second randomization to KR or R maintenance followed. The analysis found that those who achieved pre-maintenance MRD-negativity had a longer progression free survival (PFS) and overall survival compared to MRD-positive patients. A high-degree of concordance was shown between MFC and NGS, with MRD-negative patient outcomes by both techniques being similar. This interview took place during the 62nd American Society of Hematology (ASH) Annual Meeting and Exposition, 2020.
