  • Conditions: Precancerous condition | Smoldering Multiple Myeloma | Precancerous Conditions
  • Age: Between 18 - 100 Years
  • Gender: Male or Female

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Age 18 years.
  • SMM defined by IMWG 2014 criteria
    1. Serum monoclonal protein (IgG or IgA) 30 g/L and/or urinary monoclonal protein 500 mg per 24 h and/or clonal bone marrow plasma cells 10-60%
    2. Absence of myeloma defining events or amyloidosis
  • Diagnosed less than 1 year before the inclusion
  • Able and willing to give valid written informed consent. Patients must give written informed consent (IC) in accordance with institutional and local guidelines.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Previous antimyeloma treatment including bisphosphonates
  • Second Primary Malignancy and/or auto-immune disease treated by immunosuppressive drugs.
  • Evidence of end organ damage that can be attributed to the underlying SMM:
    1. Hypercalcaemia: serum calcium >0.25 mmol/L (>10 mg/L) higher than the upper limit of normal or >2.75 mmol/L (>110 mg/L)
    2. Renal insufficiency: creatinine clearance <40 mL/min or serum creatinine >177 mol/L (>20 mg/L)
    3. Anaemia: haemoglobin value of >2 g/dL below the lower limit of normal, or a haemoglobin value <10 g/dL
    4. Bone lesions: one or more osteolytic lesions on skeletal radiography, CT, or Positron Emission Tomography-Computed Tomography (PET-CT)
  • Presence of one of the following biomarkers of malignancy:
    1. Clonal bone marrow plasmocytosis 60%
    2. Involved/uninvolved serum Free Light Chain (FLC) ratio 100 (The involved free light chain must be 100 mg/L)
    3. Presence of one or more focal lesions on MRI studies (each focal lesion must be 5 mm or more in size)
  • History of malignancy other than SMM within 3 years before inclusion
  • Amyloidosis
  • POEMS syndrome
  • Contraindication to MRI
  • Pregnancy
  • Nursing mother
  • Legally protected adults (under judicial protection, guardianship, or supervision)
