Dr Bruno Paiva - Clinica Universidad de Navarra, Pamplona, Spain

Dr Bruno Paiva speaks to cancer at the 2019 MyKE Myeloma meeting about the latest technological advances in assessing a patient's MRD status.

Despite being high-risk for myeloma at the time of diagnosis, these patients may be MRD negative after treatment - in which Dr Paiva describes the risk as being "dynamic".

He discusses how the use of next-generation flow/sequencing and PET/CT scans have improved the assessment of MRD; in which flow cytometry and ASO-PCR methods have been used in the past.
