The purpose of this study is to test whether the addition of the drug plerixafor to treatment with chemotherapy and G-CSF can better activate your bone marrow stem cells to improve the chances of transplant. The study will look for the activation of a certain type of blood cell, called CD34+ cells in patients who receive plerixafor, chemotherapy and G-CSF. The investigators will follow the number of patients that achieve the target numbers of CD34+ cells. The number of patients achieving the target level of CD34+ cells, and the total number of CD34+ cells, will be compared to the numbers in previous studies testing just chemotherapy and G-CSF, without plerixafor.

The investigators will also test the safety of the combination of plerixafor with chemotherapy and G-CSF and look at the success of the transplantation after 12 months.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Proportion of patients achieving the target number of either 5 x 106 (lymphoma) or 10 x 106 (myeloma) of CD34+ cells/kg in a single day of apheresis [ Time Frame: Within the first 4 days following the first dose of Plerixafor ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Total numbers of CD34+ cells/kg collected, mean numbers of days of apheresis needed to collect the target numbers of CD34+ cells/kg , neutrophil and platelet engraftment and graft durability at 12 months post transplant [ Time Frame: Within the first 4 days following the first dose of Plerixafor ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Estimated Enrollment: 40

Estimated Study Completion Date: November 2013
Estimated Primary Completion Date: November 2012 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Single Arm
Patients who receive a combination of Plerixafor, chemotherapy and G-CSF vs. a historical group of control patients who received chemotherapy and G-CSF alone.
Drug: Plerixafor
240 µg/kg subcutaneous injection on the day that the ANC is > 1500/mm3 and on each day of apheresis for a total of 4 aphereses or the target CD34 cell dose has been reached.
