Maintenance therapy with lenalidomide (Revlimid) following autologous stem-cell transplantation (ASCT) conferred a survival benefit for patients with newly diagnosed multiple myeloma, according to results from a meta-analysis published in the Journal of Clinical Oncology.1

Compared with patients assigned to placebo or observation (n = 603), those assigned to lenalidomide (n = 605) had superior progression-free survival (PFS; 52.8 vs 23.5 months), with a hazard ratio (HR) of 0.48 (95% CI, 0.41-0.55). Median follow-up was 79.5 months for all surviving patients at the March 1, 2015 data cutoff. At that time, median overall survival (OS) was 86.0 months for the placebo or observation group and had not been reached for the lenalidomide maintenance group (HR, 0.75; 95% CI, 0.63-0.90; P = .001).
