Abstract Share this page

Since the mid 1990s, high-dose therapy followed by autologous stem-cell transplantation (ASCT) has been considered the standard of care for frontline therapy in younger patients with multiple myeloma (MM). During the past 10 years, thalidomide, bortezomib, and lenalidomide have been widely incorporated to the therapeutic armamentarium for the treatment of this disease. These agents show promise for improving the rate of complete remission both before and after ASCT without increasing toxicity. However, it is not clear whether such therapies are superior if they are used as an alternative to transplantation or whether they may reduce the need for and use of transplantation in patients in whom treatment is indicated. Therefore, the role of ASCT itself is a matter of debate: Should it be used upfront or as salvage treatment at the time of progression in patients initially treated with novel agents? This review presents current trends in ASCT for MM in the era of novel therapies.
