Continuous treatment (CT) versus fixed duration of therapy (FDT) in newly diagnosed myeloma patients: PFS1, PFS2, OS endpoints

Continuous therapy significantly prolongs remission duration, resistant relapse may reduce the duration of subsequent remission which can negatively impact on OS. PFS1 defines the time from start of therapy to the occurrence of 1st relapse. PFS2 is defined as per EMA as the time from start of therapy to the occurrence of 2nd relapse, incorporating the duration of both 1st and 2nd remission. We evaluated PFS1, PFS2 and OS in newly diagnosed multiple myeloma (NDMM) patients who received CT or FDT.
