Time Alteration in Timing of Plerixafor Administration

2014-08-27 03:12:42 | BioPortfolio


Typically, the collection of blood cells for autologous stem cell transplant is done after the drugs granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF) and plerixafor have been given to activate the bone marrow stem cells to produce a certain type of blood cell, called CD34+ cells. Currently, plerixafor is given in the evening, about 11 hours before apheresis (removal of blood) begins the following morning. The purpose of this study is to test whether plerixafor can instead be given 15-20 hours before apheresis. This timing would be more convenient since plerixafor would be given during normal clinic hours, and so patients would be within a clinic environment if any side effects develop.

The study will look for the activation of CD34+ cells in patients who receive plerixafor 15 and 20 hours before apheresis. We will follow the number of patients that achieve the target numbers of CD34+ cells, and the total number of CD34+ cells collected. These will be compared to the numbers in previous studies giving plerixafor 11 hours before apheresis.

We will also assess the safety of giving plerixafor 15 and 20 hours before apheresis.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Transplantation from another site in or on the body of the individual receiving it.

Transfer of HEMATOPOIETIC STEM CELLS from BONE MARROW or BLOOD between individuals within the same species (TRANSPLANTATION, HOMOLOGOUS) or transfer within the same individual (TRANSPLANTATION, AUTOLOGOUS). Hematopoietic stem cell transplantation has been used as an alternative to BONE MARROW TRANSPLANTATION in the treatment of a variety of neoplasms.

Transfer of MESENCHYMAL STEM CELLS between individuals within the same species (TRANSPLANTATION, HOMOLOGOUS) or transfer within the same individual (TRANSPLANTATION, AUTOLOGOUS).

Transplantation of tissue typical of one area to a different recipient site. The tissue may be autologous, heterologous, or homologous.

The transfer of STEM CELLS from one individual to another within the same species (TRANSPLANTATION, HOMOLOGOUS) or between species (XENOTRANSPLANTATION), or transfer within the same individual (TRANSPLANTATION, AUTOLOGOUS). The source and location of the stem cells determines their potency or pluripotency to differentiate into various cell types.
