    • By integrating genomic and in vitro functional analysis, this study uncovers tumor-intrinsic mechanisms of resistance to immunotherapies that target B cell maturation antigen (BCMA) or the orphan G-protein-coupled-receptor GPRC5D in multiple myeloma (MM), highlighting a pivotal role for mutations in the genes encoding BCMA and GPRC5D in driving clinical relapse. These insights provide crucial guidance for the selection of therapeutic strategies and the development of next-generation targeted immunotherapies in MM.
