2016 Minimal Residual Disease


The importance of MRD

MRD resources for researchers

Roundtable discussion: advances in MRD testing in myeloma

Minimal Residual Disease (MRD) is a hot topic today in the field of multiple myeloma (MM), in great part because we finally have very active treatment regimens that can bring deep and sustained responses to patients.
