Abstract

The current definition of multiple myeloma is outdated. The diagnosis requires evidence of overt end-organ damage, preventing initiation of early therapy when the malignancy is at its most susceptible stage. We propose an evidence-based approach using more-sensitive and highly specific biomarkers to update the definition of this disease.
