Autologous Stem Cell Transplantation for Myeloma Patients Over 65 Years (LATMM)

This study is ongoing, but not recruiting participants.

Last verified: June 2016
Autologous stem cell transplantation remains the gold standard of treatment for newly diagnosed patients under the age of 65. Even though it is also regularly performed above the age of 65, there are very few data in this patient population. The investigators will capture safety and efficacy data in that setting.

above 65 years old

Detailed Description:
Newly diagnosed myeloma patients above the age of 65 years will be treated the following way: Bortezomib (Velcade®) based induction treatment (either Velcade Dexamethasone, Velcade Thalidomide Dexamethasone (VTD) or Velcade Cyclophosphamide Dexamethasone (VCD)). After the induction phase, for patients at least in partial remission, a collection of peripheral blood stem cells (PBSC) is done according to each center practice. High dose melphalan (140 mg/m2) followed by PBSC autologous transplantation is then performed. Three months post transplant, 2-3 cycles (similar to the initial induction phase) of consolidation are allowed.
