Romiplostim in Increasing Low Platelet Counts in Patients With Multiple Myeloma Receiving Chemotherapy

2014-10-01 16:53:23 | BioPortfolio

Summary

This phase II trial studies how well romiplostim works in increasing low platelet counts in patients with multiple myeloma receiving chemotherapy. Romiplostim may cause the body to make platelets after chemotherapy

Description

PRIMARY OBJECTIVES:

I. To determine if Nplate (romiplostim) is capable of increasing platelet counts to > 50 x 10^9/L for greater than 2 weeks in myeloma patients with chemotherapy induced thrombocytopenia.

SECONDARY OBJECTIVES:

I. To evaluate the toxicity of romiplostim in this patient population by standard Common Toxicity Criteria (CTC).

II. To determine any increase in thrombosis or marrow fibrosis.

OUTLINE:

Patients receive romiplostim subcutaneously (SC) once weekly for up to 6 weeks. Patients achieving a platelet count > 50 x 10^9 then receive romiplostim once weekly during 1 course of chemotherapy and may continue for as long as benefit is seen.

After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up every 3 months for 1 year.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

An asymptomatic and slow-growing PLASMA CELL dyscrasia characterized by presence of MYELOMA PROTEINS and clonal bone marrow plasma cells without end-organ damage (e.g., renal impairment). It is distinguished from MONOCLONAL GAMMOPATHY OF UNDETERMINED SIGNIFICANCE by a much higher risk of progression to symptomatic MULTIPLE MYELOMA.

A rare, aggressive variant of MULTIPLE MYELOMA characterized by the circulation of excessive PLASMA CELLS in the peripheral blood. It can be a primary manifestation of multiple myeloma or develop as a terminal complication during the disease.

Abnormal immunoglobulins characteristic of MULTIPLE MYELOMA.

Chronic refractory anemia with granulocytopenia, and/or thrombocytopenia. Myeloblasts and progranulocytes constitute 5 to 40 percent of the nucleated marrow cells.

An abnormal protein with unusual thermosolubility characteristics that is found in the urine of patients with MULTIPLE MYELOMA.
