The purpose of this study is to determine whether it is safe and effective to collect peripheral blood hematopoietic stem cells 16 hours rather than the usual 11 hours after administration of plerixafor.
The current FDA-approved timing for plerixafor is approximately 11 hours prior to apheresis. This is a logistical problem, since plerixafor should be administered by a health care provider, given the risk of hypotension with administration. The primary purpose of this study is, in autologous donors with non-Hodgkins lymphoma and multiple myeloma undergoing hematopoietic progenitor cell mobilization with plerixafor and G-CSF, to determine whether the dosing interval can be increased to 16 hours prior to apheresis. Patients will be admitted to a special clinical research center on the 4th day of G-CSF administration, where the peripheral blood CD34+ count will be measured every 2 hours after plerixafor administration at 5 pm until 9 AM the following day, at which time apheresis will commence. The hypothesis is that plerixafor administration 16 hours prior to apheresis is as safe and effective as plerixafor administration at 11 hours prior to apheresis.

The purpose of this research study is to determine the safety of plerixafor and bortezomib, and the highest dose that can be given to people safely. Plerixafor appears to stop myeloma cel...
Rationale: Giving colony-stimulating factors, such as G-CSF and plerixafor helps stem cells move from the patient's bone marrow to the blood so they can be collected and stored. Purpose: T...
This study aims to realize an economic evaluation of the introduction of Plerixafor in addition to G-CSF and alternative options, in patients with multiple myeloma (MM) who failed or insuf...
The study is an italian multicentric and will be conducted in 20 centers. The aim of this study is to evaluate poor mobilizer (PM) rate in newly diagnosed MM patients who are mobilized wit...
This Phase 2 study was designed to assess the safety and hematological activity of AMD3100 (plerixafor) in patients with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) or multiple myeloma (MM) who were pred...
To estimate the association between organochlorine pesticides and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) and multiple myeloma (MM).
A 60-year-old woman diagnosed with multiple myeloma was referred for Ga-pentixafor PET/CT for evaluation of the disease. Diffuse and intense radioactivity throughout the axial and proximal appendicula...
In recent years, several new drugs have been approved for the treatment of multiple myeloma. Many of these newer drugs are highly efficacious and less toxic than older chemotherapy drugs. In 2014, the...
Daratumumab is a promising new anti-myeloma agent. We report a single center "real world" series of multiple myeloma (MM) and amyloidosis (AL) patients treated with daratumumab.
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.
An abnormal protein with unusual thermosolubility characteristics that is found in the urine of patients with MULTIPLE MYELOMA.
A pyrazine and boronic acid derivative that functions as a reversible PROTEASOME INHIBITOR. It is used as an ANTINEOPLASTIC AGENT in the treatment of MULTIPLE MYELOMA and MANTLE CELL LYMPHOMA.
Class I human histocompatibility (HLA) antigens encoded by a small cluster of structural genes at the C locus on chromosome 6. They have significantly lower immunogenicity than the HLA-A and -B determinants and are therefore of minor importance in donor/recipient crossmatching. Their primary role is their high-risk association with certain disease manifestations (e.g., spondylarthritis, psoriasis, multiple myeloma).
Within medicine, nutrition (the study of food and the effect of its components on the body) has many different roles. Appropriate nutrition can help prevent certain diseases, or treat others. In critically ill patients, artificial feeding by tubes need t...
