Multiple Myeloma, Version 2.2019

This is a clinical practice guideline for patients with multiple myeloma. The guideline examines the primary therapy and surveillance/follow-up tests for both solitary plasmacytoma and smoldering (asymptomatic) myeloma, and the primary therapy and monitoring for active (symptomatic) myeloma. Stem cell transplants (SCT), including autologous SCT, tandem SCT, and allogeneic SCT, as well as follow-up after stem cell transplants, are also discussed. In addition, the guideline considers diagnostic tests, response criteria, maintenance therapy, treatment of progressive or relapsed myeloma, and supportive care treatment.
