Dr Salomon Manier - Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, Boston, USA

Dr Salomon Manier speaks with ecancer at the 16th International Myeloma Workshop about cell-free DNA (cfDNA) and circulating tumour cells (CTCs) sequencing that enable serial temporal sampling.

The team looked at whole-exome sequencing (WES) and ultra low pass-whole genome sequencing (ULP-WGS) of cfDNA and CTCs in multiple myeloma.

The study demonstrated that WES and ULP-WGS of cfDNA and CTCs are consistently representative of tumour DNA alterations in terms of CNAs and SNVs.

This approach could therefore be used to longitudinally follow clonal evolution and minimal residual disease in MM, personalising and improving treatment.

It also reduces the need for bone marrow biopsy, greatly improving the patient experience.
