New induction regimens with lenalidomide and carfilzomib are under evaluation. Autologous transplantation The concept of HDT plus auto-SCT was developed in the 1980s. The objective of auto-SCT was to support HDT in order to reduce the duration and toxicity of severe myelosuppression. The IFM group was the first to conduct a randomized trial showing the superiority of HDT/auto-SCT over conventional chemotherapy in patients younger than 65 years regarding response rate, event-free survival (EFS) and overall survival (OS) [16].
