Understanding your Minimal Residual Disease status, and understanding what MRD testing is and what it means is critical to the future of myeloma and your myeloma care. Below are some video excerpts from our HealthTree University curriculum to help you learn more about this important aspect of your disease.

16.07 Can MRD testing be used to guide treatment decisions?
