The primary objective of this study is to evaluate tumor cell mobilization (TCM) with non-pegylated G-CSF alone compared with non-pegylated G-CSF plus plerixafor in patients with multiple myeloma (MM) who are potentially poor mobilizers of hematopoietic stem cells (HSC).

Second objectives are to evaluate survival and disease status of G-CSF alone compared with GCSF plus plerixafor, and the efficacy and safety of G-CSF plus plerixafor when used to mobilize stem cells for autologous transplantation.

Condition Intervention Phase

Drug: Plerixafor
Drug: Granulocyte-colony stimulating factor (G-CSF)
Phase 2

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment

Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Pilot, Exploratory, Randomized, Phase 2 Safety Study Evaluating Tumor Cell (Plasma Cell) Mobilization and Apheresis Product Contamination in Plerixafor Plus Non-pegylated G-CSF Mobilized Patients and in Non-pegylated G-CSF Alone Mobilized Patients

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • The presence of myeloma tumor cells as measured by the percentage of myeloma tumor cells/CD34+ cells [ Time Frame: Day 1 to Day 8 of the apheresis/treatment period ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Peripheral blood parameters

  • The presence of myeloma tumor cells as measured by the percentage of myeloma tumor cells/plerixafor cumulative dose/kg body weights [ Time Frame: Day 5 to Day 8 of the apheresis/treatment period ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Peripheral blood parameters

  • The presence of myeloma tumor cells as measured by the percentage of myeloma tumor cells/G-CSF cumulative dose/kg body weight [ Time Frame: Day 5 to Day 8 of the apheresis/treatment period ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Peripheral blood parameters

  • The change in tumor cell mobilization(TCM) in the peripheral blood [ Time Frame: Day 4 pre-G-CSF to Day 5 pre-G-CSF ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Peripheral blood parameters

  • The number of myeloma tumor cells per patient at each apheresis [ Time Frame: Day 1 to Day 8 of the apheresis/treatment period ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Apheresis product parameters

  • The number of patients who mobilize at least 4.5x10^5 myeloma tumor cells/kg body weight as measured in each apheresis product [ Time Frame: Day 5 to Day 8 of the apheresis/treatment period ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Apheresis product parameters

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • CD34+ stem cell yield in the apheresis product [ Time Frame: Day 1 to Day 8 of the apheresis/treatment period ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • The number of patients that proceed to transplantation [ Time Frame: Up to 2 months after final apheresis ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Overall survival [ Time Frame: Day 100 post transplant and up to 2 years post first-G-CSF dose ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Patients with a diagnosis of MM in partial response or complete response, who are undergo an autologous hematopoietic stem cell transplantation and could be considered potentially poor mobilizers.

  • Chemotherapy for mobilization is not allowed.
  • Has bone marrow involvement >10% assessed based on the most recent bone marrow aspirate or biopsy performed prior to first dose of G-CSF.
