During the 62nd American Society of Hematology (ASH) Annual Meeting and Exposition, Know AML spoke to Danielle Hammond, MD Anderson Cancer Center, Houston, US. We asked, What is measurable residual disease (MRD) and when should it be tested? In this video, after explaining what MRD is, Hammond talks about the different techniques used to assess MRD. She then highlights the importance of MRD assessment at the end of treatment and for at least the first two years after achieving deep remission.
