Some drugs have the ability to push stem cells (the cells responsible for producing new cell types) out of the bone marrow and into the blood stream. The steps involved in this process are still poorly understood. However, a better understanding of this process could lead to improved results in transplantation, cancer treatment, and contribute to the development of new genetic therapies for a wide variety of disorders.
In this study researchers plan to compare two different treatments, both that mobilize (push) stem cells out of the bone marrow into the blood stream. In addition, researchers will attempt to determine which is the most efficient at mobilizing blood cells of patients with multiple myeloma.
Information and knowledge gained from this study will help to design future transplantation and genetic therapy research studies.
