Stem Cell Transplantation for Multiple Myeloma

I came across this article that I thought might be of interest to many of you.

Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation for Multiple Myeloma: Guidelines from the American Society for Blood and Marrow Transplantation

It is a journal article, as such, fairly technical. It gives the consensus of expert transplant doctors on the role of stem cell transplants for MM. Interestingly, I found it an e-mail from the National Marrow Donor Program (NMDP), even though the article does not recommend allogeneic SCT except perhaps in a very small number of cases and really does not recommend it using an unrelated donor.

Thanks, Art, very informative.
