Saad Z. Usmani, MD
Saad Z. Usmani, MD, Department of Hematologic Oncology and Blood Disorders, Levine Cancer Institute/Carolinas HealthCare System, discusses the phase III Gimema-MMY-3006 study for patients with multiple myeloma.
MMprofiler is a gene expression profiling tool that is going to be commercialized in the United States, explains Usmani. The Gimema-MMY-3006 study investigated MMprofiler with SKY92 for patients with high- and low-risk of relapse.
SKY92 can independently prognosticate patients who are at the highest risk for disease relapse. According to Usmani, the field is at the point where there is a better prognostication as well as molecular subclass identification of myeloma with gene expression profiling.
