The availability of drugs such as thalidomide, bortezomib and lenalidomide changed the landscape in myeloma treatment and has extended the median survival up to 10 years with a substantial improvement in quality of life.

These recommendations should help clinicians in their decision making to achieve the best outcome based on currently available data.
