AIM: The Korean Multiple Myeloma Working Party performed a nationwide registration of multiple myeloma patients via a web-based data bank system.

METHODS: We retrospectively analyzed registered data from 3,209 patients since 1999.

RESULTS: The median overall survival (OS) was 50.13 months (95% confidence interval: 46.20-54.06 months). Patients < or =40 years demonstrated a longer OS than patients >65 years of age (median OS 71.13 vs. 36.73 months, p < 0.001). Patients who received novel agents at any time during their treatments showed a longer OS than patients who did not (median OS 42.23 vs. 55.50 months, p < 0.001). Response to treatment was associated with OS, with tandem autologous stem cell transplantation (SCT) producing longer OS than single autologous SCT.

CONCLUSIONS: We demonstrated associations between survival outcomes and treatment modalities as well as baseline disease characteristics in a registry of multiple myeloma patients using a web-based data analysis.
