Which patients with smoldering multiple myeloma would you enrol in a clinical trial?

María-Victoria Mateos discusses the importance of stratifying patients with smoldering multiple myeloma (MM) according to the risk of progression to MM, before enrolling them in clinical trials. The ideal candidates for inclusion in clinical trials for smoldering MM are patients at high risk of developing MM, in which the progression risk to MM is 50% at two years, and who would benefit more from treatment.
