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: This phase II trial is studying how well plerixafor works in patients with multiple myeloma previously treated with lenalidomide and planning to undergo autologous stem cell transplant.
Primary Objective: I. To determine the proportion of patients reaching a stem cell yield of 3 million CD34 cells/kg by second day of apheresis with intravenously administered AMD3100 among patients receiving primary therapy for myeloma with lenalidomide. Secondary Objectives: I. Safety and tolerability of intravenously administered AMD3100. II. Rate of failure to mobilize. Outline: Patients receive plerixafor IV on days 5-8 and filgrastim subcutaneously on days 1-8 in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. After completion of study treatment, patients are followed at 30 days.

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: There are different methods of stem cell mobilization, such as using colony-stimulating factors alone or following chemotherapy priming. More recently, the combination of plerix...
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...
Primary Objective: To determine if Multi Myeloma (MM) patients mobilized with granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF) plus plerixafor 240 μg/kg are more likely to achieve a target ...
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...
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).
Osteoporosis is a disease in which the bones become extremely porous, are subject to fracture, and heal slowly, occurring especially in women following menopause and often leading to curvature of the spine from vertebral collapse. Follow and track&n...
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...
