Early vs Late Stem Cell Transplant

Dr. Kyle, from the Mayo Clinic (read about Dr. Kyle here), was one of the MM specialists at the recent IMF patient & family seminar. Dr. Kyle’s opinion is that overall survival is the same whether a stem cell transplant is performed late or early.

I understand that some people don’t have a choice about the timing of their SCT. In some cases though, the MM is indolent or slow moving, and one can wait if one chooses.
