  • Number of patients with adverse events [ Time Frame: Up to 8 months after treatment start ]
    The number and percentage of patients who experience adverse events related to bortezomib treatment will be summarised for patients who received bortezomib consolidation after ASCT

Phase II Study of Bortezomib Consolidation After High Dose Therapy and Autologous Stem Cell Transplantation for Multiple Myeloma
The aim of this trial is to determine whether bortezomib improves response and delays progression for multiple myeloma patients after high dose therapy and autologous stem cell transplant. It will also assess the effect of bortezomib treatment on patient bone health.
