ASH 2023 | Evolution of autoSCT in multiple myeloma: patient demographics and improved outcomes

Muzaffar Qazilbash, MD, The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, Houston, TX, discusses a study investigating trends in outcomes for patients with multiple myeloma who have received autologous stem cell transplantation (autoSCT) since 1988. The study included over 3000 patients and showed that the median age for autoSCT had increased over time, as had the number of patients with higher-risk cytogenetics and pre-existing co-morbidities receiving autoSCT. Improvements to induction therapy and maintenance therapy contributed to improved outcomes, including progression-free survival (PFS) and overall survival (OS). This interview took place at the 65th ASH Annual Meeting and Exposition, held in San Diego, CA.
