Dr Francesca Gay - University Hospital City of Health and Science of Turin, Turin, Italy

Dr Francesca Gay talks to ecancer at the 2019 American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Annual Meeting about the results from the randomised FORTE trial which looked at the use of carfilzomib lenalidomide dexamethasone (KRd) with or without transplantation in newly diagnosed myeloma and evaluated according to risk status.

She reports that the rate of response and of minimal residual disease negativity between the two arms was similar but that patients with standard risk had a higher rate of stringent CR and minimal residual disease negativity.

Dr Gay adds that high risk patients receiving transplant had a higher rate of 1 year sustained minimal residual disease negativity than patients who did not.

She explains that this could be why patients who did not receive transplant have a higher rate of relapse compared with patients who received transplant.
