Autologous stem cell transplant for multiple myeloma patients 70 years or older

For newly diagnosed patients, median PFS was 33.5 months for the older cohort and 33.8 months for the younger cohort (P=0.91), and median overall survival was 6.1 and 7.8 years, respectively (P=0.11). Presumably, a smaller fraction of patients, age 70–76, is selected for Auto-SCT, but the benefits are comparable to those seen for younger patients.
