Poor mobilization of hematopoietic progenitors needed to support autologous transplantation is a serious clinical problem. We are investigating the role of plerixafor administered in an at risk population to augment successful stem cell collection.
To determine if plerixafor when administered on the day prior to planned autologous collection on first mobilization attempt in those with a peripheral blood CD34 ≤ 10X106/L will:
- increase the number of patients successfully collected in one day
- increase the number of patients successfully mobilized on first collection attempt
- is cost neutral within a Canadian setting
Allocation: Non-Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment
Plerixafor, Observation: Nonintervention

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...

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.
The act of regarding attentively and studying facts and occurrences, gathering data through analyzing, measuring, and drawing conclusions, with the purpose of applying the observed information to theoretical assumptions. Observation as a scientific method in the acquisition of knowledge began in classical antiquity; in modern science and medicine its greatest application is facilitated by modern technology. Observation is one of the components of the research process.
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 ...
