Study Summary

This trial aims to compare the effectiveness of two different treatments for multiple myeloma. The first treatment is the standard of care, which is Melphalan. The second treatment is BEAM, which has not been well studied in multiple myeloma specifically, but has been studied in other lymphomas. Early data suggests that BEAM may be effective in multiple myeloma, but there is not enough data to know for sure. This trial will help to determine whether BEAM is more effective than Melphalan.
