Is the treatment of high-risk SMM the way for achieving the cure?

During the 7th World Congress on Controversies in Multiple Myeloma (COMy), the Multiple Myeloma Hub hosted its first Satellite Symposium: Should 'cure' be the goal for multiple myeloma? María-Victoria Mateos, University Hospital of Salamanca, Salamanca, ES, answered: Is the treatment of high-risk smoldering multiple myeloma (SMM) the way for achieving the cure?

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 and its precursor states.

In this presentation, Mateos discusses the progression of monoclonal gammopathy of undetermined significance (MGUS) and SMM to MM from a molecular point of view. She explains the 2/20/20 risk stratification model for SMM, and the phase III clinical trials that have demonstrated a benefit in treating patients with high-risk SMM to delay the progression to overt MM. In her road map to cure MM, early treatment of SMM is a crucial step, and she presents two curative approaches being currently investigated in clinical trials.

Is the treatment of high-risk SMM the way for achieving the cure?
