ABSTRACT Progression or relapse occurs in the vast majority of patients with multiple myeloma (MM) who undergo up-front autologous haematopoietic cell transplantation (AHCT1), which remains a cornerstone of treatment in the era of novel agents. Limited data are available regarding the value of salvage therapy with a second AHCT (AHCT2) in patients who relapse/progress after AHCT1. We analysed the outcome of 83 patients who underwent salvage AHCT2 between 1994 and 2011. Most patients (77%) had received treatment with novel agents between AHCT1 and AHCT2, and 28% of patients were from ethnic minority groups. Median overall survival (OS) from AHCT2 was 31.5 months (95%CI: 22 - 41), and median progression-free survival (PFS) was 15.5 months (95%CI: 11-20). In multivariate analysis, only disease status (≥PR) at AHCT2 was associated with better OS. The 3-year OS rates for patients receiving AHCT2 in >PR and PR were 85.9% (95%CI: 61-96) and 51.3% (95%CI: 34-68), respectively. Disease status at AHCT2 and time to progression/relapse after AHCT1 were associated with PFS in multivariate analysis. In summary, salvage AHCT2 is an effective treatment option in patients with chemosensitive relapse/progression and prolonged remission after a prior autograft.
