The current therapeutic paradigm for the transplant recipient in multiple myeloma needs to be continuously updated. It will be clarified if it actually defines the standard of care stating the unmet needs as well. With the dual purpose of treating a symptomatic disease and obtaining a maximized depth of response autologous stem cell support (ASCT) is the backbone of young multiple myeloma patient approach. This manuscript provides a real-life oriented strategy, needed for a patient centered clinical practice.
