Plans are also in place to produce UKMF Good Practice Papers (GPPs) on the investigation and management of monoclonal gammopathy of undetermined significance (MGUS), a separate GPP on the investigation and management of monoclonal gammopathy of renal significance (MGRS) and a GPP/guideline on management of smouldering myeloma. Work on these GPPs has begun within the last year.
