A Randomized Phase 2 Trial Comparing Carfilzomib-Dexamethasone Vs Observation As Maintenance after Induction with Carfilzomib-Cyclophosphamide-Dexamethasone in Salvage ASCT in Multiple Myeloma: A Trial By the Nordic Myeloma Study Group

ASH 2019 Congress – Abstract No. 601, Gregersen, H et al.


“In this randomized phase 2 trial, maintenance therapy with carfilzomib and dexamethasone prolonged median TTP with approximately 10 months following salvage ASCT in multiple myeloma. The difference between TTP after upfront ASCT and TTP after salvage ASCT with carfilzomib based induction therapy was small which supports the use of salvage ASCT followed by maintenance in selected patients at first relapse.
