We assessed the impact of unpurged autologous stem cell transplantation (ASCT) on long-term outcome of 118 patients with acute myeloid leukemia (AML) in first complete remission (CR1). With a median follow-up of 95 months, the 10-year overall survival, disease-free survival and relapse risk are, respectively, 54%, 50% and 46%. De novo AML, the presence of a favorable karyotype and intensification of treatment prior to ASCT are independently associated with clinical outcome by multivariate analysis. Thus, a remarkable proportion of AML patients in CR1 can be cured with high-dose therapy and ASCT.
