Revised Multiple Myeloma International Staging System (R-ISS)

Advice

Many MM patients are treated through clinical trials. Physicians may consider referring patients to academic treatment centers if they are eligible and willing to receive transplantation, not only to discuss standard treatment options, but also to consider clinical trial options.

Management

  • Current staging systems provide prognostic information and are useful for stratification and data assessments/comparisons.
  • The R-ISS, though a more robust powerful prognostic tool compared to ISS, is NOT directly used to alter treatment recommendations outside of a clinical trial at this time.
