We have retrospectively analysed 344 multiple myeloma (MM) patients (202 de novo patients) treated in a non-uniform way in whom high-dose therapy and autologous stem cell transplantation (ASCT) response was simultaneously measured by both electrophoresis (EP) and immunofixation (IF). Patients in complete remission (CR) by EP were further subclassified as CR1 when IF was negative and CR2 when it remained positive. Partial responders (PR) were also subclassified as PR1 (very good PR, > 90… CONTINUE READING
