Noemi Puig, MD, PhD, University Hospital Salamanca, Salamanca, Spain, highlights the advantages of mass spectrometry over immunofixation in the diagnosis and monitoring of multiple myeloma. Dr Puig explains that mass spectrometry is more sensitive and allows identifying patients who will have worse outcomes better than immunofixation. In addition, mass spectrometry can discriminate between the patient’s M-protein and therapeutic monoclonal antibodies, thereby leading to better treatment response monitoring. This interview took place at the 19th International Myeloma Society Meeting (IMS) held in Los Angeles, CA.
