Prognostic factor analyses of myeloma (MM) survival outcomes on intergroup trial S9321 (int 0141): Examining whether different variables govern different time segments of survival.

8599 Background: MM survival varies enormously from few months to more than a decade. Baseline prognostic factors (PF) have been identified that are linked to survival outcomes, especially B2M and albumin. MM survival plots are typically characterized by 3 segments of slopes with decreasing steepness, suggesting that different PF may govern these time… CONTINUE READING
