The is a randomized control study for newly-diagnosed myeloma patients 18-65 year old. All patients will receive 4 cycles of velcade and Dexamethasone as front-line therapy. Then patients will be randomized into standard group which will receive a single autologous hematopoietic stem cell transplantation with standard conditioning of melphalan 200mg/m2 and the study group which will receive single autologous hematopoietic stem cell transplantation with conditioning of melphalan 200mg/m2 + velcade followed by 3 more cycles of velcade alone as consolidation.
The is a randomized control study for newly-diagnosed myeloma patients 18-65 year old. Newly-diagnosed myeloma patient enrolled will receive 4 cycles of velcade and Dexamethasone as front-line induction therapy. All patients finished the induction therapy will be randomized into standard group and the study group. All patients will mobilized by cyclophosphamide with G-CSF to collect a target of 2x106 CD34+/kg and then undergo autologous stem cell transplantation. For standard group, patients will receive single auto-SCT with standard conditioning of melphalan 200mg/m2. The patients in the study group will receive single auto-SCT with conditioning of melphalan 200mg/m2 added with 4 dose of velcade at 1.0mg/m2 during the transplantation procedure and then followed by 3 more cycles of velcade alone as consolidation.

Daratumumab is a promising new anti-myeloma agent. We report a single center "real world" series of multiple myeloma (MM) and amyloidosis (AL) patients treated with daratumumab.
A rare, aggressive variant of MULTIPLE MYELOMA characterized by the circulation of excessive PLASMA CELLS in the peripheral blood. It can be a primary manifestation of multiple myeloma or develop as a terminal complication during the disease.
Abnormal immunoglobulins characteristic of MULTIPLE MYELOMA.
An abnormal protein with unusual thermosolubility characteristics that is found in the urine of patients with MULTIPLE MYELOMA.
A pyrazine and boronic acid derivative that functions as a reversible PROTEASOME INHIBITOR. It is used as an ANTINEOPLASTIC AGENT in the treatment of MULTIPLE MYELOMA and MANTLE CELL LYMPHOMA.
Class I human histocompatibility (HLA) antigens encoded by a small cluster of structural genes at the C locus on chromosome 6. They have significantly lower immunogenicity than the HLA-A and -B determinants and are therefore of minor importance in donor/recipient crossmatching. Their primary role is their high-risk association with certain disease manifestations (e.g., spondylarthritis, psoriasis, multiple myeloma).
Organ transplantation is the moving of an organ from one body to another or from a donor site to another location on the patient's own body, for the purpose of replacing the recipient's damaged or absent organ. The emerging field of regenerative ...
