Minimal Residual Disease (MRD)
event Apr 12, 2022 / 01:00PM - 02:00PM EDT

Event Description

While remission (or state of complete response) can be an exciting time for myeloma patients, there might be a level of stress surrounding the monitoring of the disease for the inevitable relapse. And while MRD testing can help provide insight on the disease's activity within the body, excessive MRD testing might become costly or negatively affect your quality of life. Here to help share insight on this complicated topic is multiple myeloma specialist Dr. Joshua Richter from Mount Sinai Hospital in NYC. Be prepared to learn with us and come with questions!
