Description

Some drugs, such as hematopoietic cytokines, result in mobilization of primitive stem cells out of the bone marrow space and into the blood, but the mechanisms of this process are still poorly understood. A better understanding of this process could greatly improve clinical results in transplantation, cancer treatment, and potentially genetic therapy of a wide variety of disorders. In this protocol, we will study two different mobilization treatments and compare how efficient they are at increasing the number of primitive cells in the blood in patients with multiple myeloma. These cells wil...

Eligibility criteria

  • INCLUSION CRITERIA
  • Age 70 or younger at time of pretransplant evaluation.
  • An established diagnosis of multiple myeloma.
  • ECOG performance status of 0 or 1 and a life-expectancy of greater than 6 months.
  • Marrow cellularity greater than 20 percent, with less than or equal to 30 percent plasma cells within one month of study entry.
  • Platelet count greater than 100,000/ul, ANC greater than 1200/ul.
  • Demonstration of a partial or complete response to initial or salvage therapy (a minimum of a 50 percent reduction in the detectable serum paraprotein or at least a 90 percent reduction in the detectable urine monoclonal light chains, stable for at least four weeks prior to entry into study). A cumulative total of less than or equal to 6 cycles of regimens containing alkylating agents.
  • Bilirubin less than 2.0, transaminases less than 2x upper limit of normal, serum creatinine less than 3.0.
  • Ability and willingness to give informed consent.
  • EXCLUSION CRITERIA
  • Prior bone marrow or PBSC transplant.
  • HIV positivity.
  • Extensive marrow fibrosis, non-aspirable marrow, myelodysplastic changes or greater than 30 percent marrow plasma cells.
  • Prior treatment with greater than 6 cycles of chemotherapy regimens containing alkylating agents such as melphalan, cyclophosphamide or BCNU.
  • History of another malignancy within 5 years of protocol entry, with the exception of localized carcinomas cured by surgical resection such as basal cell carcinoma, stage I breast or bladder cancer, or in situ carcinoma of the cervix.
  • Significant nonmalignant disease including uncontrolled hypertension, unstable angina, congestive heart failure, poorly controlled diabetes, coronary angioplasty within 6 months, myocardial infarction within 6 months, uncontrolled arrhythmias, or any other medical condition felt by the principal investigator to unduly increase the risk of autologous transplantation.
  • Significant allergy history: these criteria will be assessed via the Allergy History CRF Screening Form.
  • Patients with any of the following concurrent conditions are not eligible:
  • No history of positive allergy tests to insect venoms (either skin or RAST).
  • No history of seasonal or recurrent asthma within the preceding 10 years.
  • No asthmatic symptoms (e.g. wheezing) related to a current respiratory tract infection.
  • No anaphylactic/anaphylactoid-type event manifested by disseminated urticaria, laryngeal edema, and/or bronchospasm (or for example: food, insect bites, etc.) Patients with drug allergies, manifest solely by rash, and/or urticaria are not excluded.
  • No history of angioedema or recurrent urticaria (an isolated episode of urticaria is not a contraindication).
  • No active infection (including those with current symptoms of bronchoconstriction), or fever greater than or equal to 38.2 degrees Celsius.
  • No known allergy to E. coli-derived products.
  • No concurrent use of beta adrenergic blocking agents.
  • No concurrent use of other investigative agents.
  • No pregnancy or breast-feeding. Men and women of child-bearing potential, admitted to the trial are to be advised to take adequate measures to prevent conception.
  • Patients maintained on interferon, chemotherapy or hematopoietic growth factors must have these treatments discontinued for at least four weeks prior to entry into this study.
