Autologous stem cell transplant (ASCT) remains an integral part of the treatment strategy for many myeloma patients. The role of allogeneic stem cell transplant continues to be defined. There is increasing evidence that posttransplant maintenance therapy can significantly improve outcomes. It is predicted that with more routine use of cytogenetic and gene expression profiling in the future, we will be better able to identify those subgroups of patients who are expected to benefit most from early versus late versus no ASCT and those who will benefit from allogeneic stem cell transplant.
