Abstract: Autologous stem cell transplantation (ASCT) has an important role in the treatment of multiple myeloma (MM) patients. The aim of our study was to analyse retrospectively the impact of selected simple parameters on the survival of patients with MM after ASCT, including age, type of M-protein, stage of MM, treatment response, and presence of renal impairment. A total of 181 MM patients were transplanted in our centre between 1995 and 2004. The median follow-up from transplant was 59 months. Following ASCT, 29% of patients were in complete remission (CR) and 62% in partial remission (PR); 35% of patients had very good partial response (VGPR). Median time to progression (TTP) and overall survival (OS) from start of therapy were 33.0 and 78.3 months, respectively. Significant prognostic parameters for poor survival after ASCT were: age at transplant > 60 years (P
