The study will be conducted as a single center Phase I/II study to evaluate the safety of administering Plerixafor administered as part of a myeloablative preparative regimen (Institutional Protocol:Fludarabine 50mg/m2/da x 4 days, Busulfan 3.2mg/kg/day x 4 days, TBI 400cGy in divided fractions) for stem cell transplant recipients with AML and to determine whether or not residual leukemic stem cells can be mobilized. Three patients will be enrolled into each of 4 sequential cohorts. Patients in the first cohort will receive 1 dose of Plerixafor (240mcg/kg sc) prior to administration of the first dose of Fludarabine and Busulfan. If tolerated it is planned to escalate the number of Plerixafor doses in the subsequent cohorts to 2. 3. and 4 to be administered before the respective 2nd, 3rd, and 4th dose of chemotherapy.
The study will be conducted as a single center Phase I/II study to evaluate the safety of administering PLERIXAFOR as part of a myeloablative preparative regimen (Institutional Protocol: FBT(400) - FLUDARABINE 50mg/m2/d x 4 days, BUSULFAN 3.2mg/kg/day x 4 days, TBI 400cGy in 2 fractions) for stem cell transplant recipients with Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML) and to determine whether or not residual leukemic stem cells can be mobilized. Three patients will be enrolled into each of 4 sequential cohorts. Patients in the first cohort will receive 1 dose (240mcg/kg SC) of PLERIXAFOR ( MOZOBIL, formerly known as AMD3100) prior to administration of the first dose of FLUDARABINE and BUSULFAN It is planned to escalate the number of PLERIXAFOR doses in the subsequent cohorts to 2. 3. and 4 to be administered before the respective 2nd, 3rd, and 4th doses of chemotherapy. As primary endpoint the study will establish the toxicity of combined administration of PLERIXAFOR and the preparative regimen at each dose level. Secondary endpoints will include quantification of CXCR4 positive cells and candidates for leukemic disease propagating cells before and after administration of PLERIXAFOR. Mobilized cells will be examined for the ability to undergo apoptosis. Clinical parameters including SAE, OS and LFS are part of the evaluation.
The comparison of cell populations in peripheral blood before and after PLERIXAFOR may facilitate a better definition of minimal residual disease in patients deemed morphologically in a complete remission. The assessment after completion of the preparative regimen will provide a measurement of minimal residual disease prior to the transplant. The assessment of residual leukemic cells with respect to apoptosis will define their responsiveness to the administration of FLUDARABINE and BUSULFAN. The obtained information will facilitate development of a new platform to optimize preparation of patients for a transplant. Eg. Insufficient mobilization of leukemic cells may be addressed in future studies by combining mobilization strategies. Similarly, if cells are shown to be apoptosis resistant one may be able to include apoptosis inducing small molecules.

The purpose of this research study is to determine if Plerixafor can release cells into the blood and make them more sensitive to killing by Cytarabine and Daunorubicin, an anti-cancer dru...
This study is designed to test the combination of Plerixafor with G-CSF for chemosensitization in patients with relapsed or refractory AML.
In this phase I extension study, the investigators seek to test the safety of both higher doses of plerixafor as well as intravenous dosing to maximize inhibition of the target, CXCR4.
This is a phase 1, dose escalation study of Plerixafor in combination with granulocyte-colony stimulating factor , Daunorubicin and Cytarabine in adults patients with relapsed acute myeloi...
Primary Objectives: To determine the safety of Plerixafor and Filgrastim (G-CSF) in combination with sorafenib for treatment of refractory or relapsed myeloid leukemias with mutated fms-l...
Previously, we found that dual therapy by the CXCR4 inhibitor Plerixafor and cytosine arabinoside (Ara-C) effectively eradicated leukemia cells and concurrently activated immune cells in acute myeloid...
Exposures to DNA-damaging drugs and ionizing radiations increase risks of acute myeloid leukemia (AML) and myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS).
Acute leukemia is a well known childhood cancer. The relation between leukemia and otological symptoms has long been established but is highly rare as a debut symptom of leukemia. External otitis is a...
Among 235 children with acute myeloid leukemia, 17 experienced 19 perianal infections. Among 12 episodes with definite abscess, 75% were severely neutropenic. Sixteen diagnostic imaging evaluations we...
A pediatric acute myeloid leukemia involving both myeloid and monocytoid precursors. At least 20% of non-erythroid cells are of monocytic origin.
A rare acute myeloid leukemia characterized by abnormal EOSINOPHILS in the bone marrow.
An acute myeloid leukemia in which abnormal PROMYELOCYTES predominate. It is frequently associated with DISSEMINATED INTRAVASCULAR COAGULATION.
An acute leukemia exhibiting cell features characteristic of both the myeloid and lymphoid lineages and probably arising from MULTIPOTENT STEM CELLS.
Clonal expansion of myeloid blasts in bone marrow, blood, and other tissue. Myeloid leukemias develop from changes in cells that normally produce NEUTROPHILS; BASOPHILS; EOSINOPHILS; and MONOCYTES.
In a clinical trial or interventional study, participants receive specific interventions according to the research plan or protocol created by the investigators. These interventions may be medical products, such as drugs or devices; procedures; or change...
Organ transplantation is the moving of an organ from one body to another or from a donor site to another location on the patient's own body, for the purpose of replacing the recipient's damaged or absent organ. The emerging field of regenerative ...
