Long-term follow-up of BMT CTN 0702 (STaMINA) of postautologous hematopoietic cell transplantation strategies in the upfront treatment of multiple myeloma
What is the STaMINA study?
STaMINA was a phase III trial comparing the long-term outcomes among 758 myeloma patients undergoing single autologous transplant with or without consolidation therapy versus tandem autologous transplant with lenalidomide maintenance.

Dr. Parameswaran Hari, Professor of Hematology at the Medical College of Wisconsin, discusses the long-term follow-up of the STaMINA study.
Long term outcomes are similar using ITT, but as treated analysis suggested a progression-free survival benefit for patients who had undergone tandem autologous hematopoietic cell transplant, driven mainly by patients with high-risk multiple myeloma. Lenalidomide discontinuation even at 38 mo was associated with inferior progression-free survival.
Clinical trial information: NCT02322320
