You are evaluating a 47-year-old man with revised international staging system stage III myeloma who recently underwent an autologous stem cell transplant after receiving 6 cycles of carfilzomib, lenalidomide, and dexamethasone for newly diagnosed disease. Fluorescence in situ hybridization testing at initial presentation also revealed t(4;14). On day 100 evaluation after transplant, he has achieved a stringent complete response. Two-tube, 8-color advanced flow cytometry with a sensitivity of 10−5 shows no minimal residual disease. Whole-body positron emission tomography/computed tomography scan shows resolution of all fluorodeoxyglucose avid uptake seen at diagnosis. The patient asks you how these test results impact his prognosis and whether this overcomes his baseline high risk from t(4;14)?
