In this population-based survey covering two geographically distinct UK regions, we evaluated the number of myeloma patients aged less than or equal to65 years who have not undergone transplantation. The combined data from both of these regions showed that 57% of age-eligible patients were not transplanted. While early death and comorbidity accounted for nearly half of the non-transplanted patients, we examined the other reasons for non-transplantation within each region, assessed regional variations in reasons for non-transplant and looked at possible strategies aimed at increasing the transplantation rate.
