Further study details as provided by Celgene:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Identify and summarize patterns in therapeutic regimens [ Time Frame: up to 8 years ]
    Describe practice patterns of common first-line treatment regimens and subsequent therapeutic strategies in patients newly diagnosed with symptomatic MM in the community and academic setting

  • Identify and summarize patterns in therapeutic regimens and patient outcomes [ Time Frame: up to 8 years ]
    Provide insight into treatment regimens and therapy sequence in clinical practice as they relate to clinical outcomes (response, overall survival, progression-free survival) in patients newly diagnosed with symptomatic MM

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Summarize Effectiveness of Treatment Regimens [ Time Frame: up to 8 years ]
    Describe any differences in effectiveness associated with different treatment regimens, including common first-line regimens, subsequent therapeutic strategies and regional effects (such as proximity of academic centers) in patients newly diagnosed with symptomatic MM

  • Summarize health-related quality of life (HRQoL) relation to treatment regimens/sequence and clinical outcomes [ Time Frame: up to 8 years ]
    Describe the health-related quality of life (HRQoL) of patients newly diagnosed with symptomatic MM, and to explore the association with HRQoL of treatment regimens/sequence and clinical outcomes
