Brief Summary:
Here we propose an "integrative sequencing approach" utilizing a 1500 gene exome comparative analysis between multiple myeloma or related plasma cell malignancies and normal cells coupled to capture transcriptome sequencing to provide a nearly comprehensive landscape of the genetic alterations for the purpose of identifying informative and/or actionable mutations in patients with multiple myeloma and plasma cell malignancies. The approach will enable the detection of point mutations, insertions/deletions, gene fusions and rearrangements, amplifications/deletions, and outlier expressed genes among other classes of alterations.

Study Population
patients with multiple myeloma and other related disorders including, without limitation to, smoldering myeloma, monoclonal gammopathy of undetermined significance (MGUS), primary plasma cell leukemia, solitary plasmacytoma, and amyloidosis

Inclusion Criteria:

  1. Patients must have a diagnosis of multiple myeloma or related malignancy
  2. Patients are undergoing standard of care bone marrow aspirates
  3. Patients (male or female) from any race or ethnicity must be at least 18 years of age at the time of registration.

  2. Patients who are incarcerated are not eligible to participate.
  3. Women who are pregnant
  4. Patients who have had another malignancy within the last five (5) years (except for basal or squamous cell carcinoma, or in situ cancer of the cervix) where there is a possibility to contaminate the bone marrow aspirate.
