The first Multiple Myeloma Hub Satellite Symposium: Should cure be the goal for multiple myeloma. Watch here!

Welcome to the Multiple Myeloma Hub Satellite Symposium.

Please take a moment to complete the survey and answer the following question to help us gauge your current understanding of the treatment of multiple myeloma.

In the presentation, Mohty discusses how the word 'cure' has different implications for young and older patients, and discusses the functional/operational cure for patients with standard- and high-risk disease. Mohty focuses on the importance of sustained MRD negativity on survival and why it should also be monitored by PET-CT. Seeing novel agent combinations reaching unprecedented results, he is hopeful that the cure rates will rise in both young and older patients with MM in the near future.
