How do response rates observed in clinical trials translate into real-world outcomes in MM?

Kumar discusses the characteristics of patients in clinical trials versus those treated in the real-world setting, highlighting the stringent inclusion/exclusion criteria and their impact on the generalizability of clinical trial results.
