Prof Maria-Victoria Mateos - University Hospital of Salamanca, Salamanca, Spain

Prof Mateos talks to ecancertv at ICMM 2016 about the use of monoclonal gammopathy in early-stage pre-malignant disorders.

Unfortunately, she says, certain patients will see their disorder evolve into active myeloma disease.

She says it is important to predict better which patients are most at risk so they can be treated preemptively, possibly with lenalidomide and dexamethasone.

For more on this, watch the interview with Dr Van De Donk.
