Trial Information

A Multicenter, Randomized, Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled, Comparative Trial of AMD3100 Plus G-CSF Versus G-CSF Plus Placebo to Mobilize and Collect ≥ 5 * 10^6 CD34+ Cells/kg in Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma Patients for Autologous Transplantation

A peripheral stem cell transplant may be able to replace blood-forming cells that were
destroyed by chemotherapy. Currently filgrastim (G-CSF), a colony stimulating factor, is
used to cause the growth and mobilization of stem cells from bone marrow to peripheral
blood, which can then be collected from the peripheral blood by a process called apheresis.
Plerixafor aids in the release of the stem cells from the bone marrow into the peripheral
blood, possibly allowing for a more rapid collection of a larger number of stem cells from
the peripheral blood. Larger stem cell doses for transplantation correlate to faster
recovery times after high dose chemotherapy followed with stem cell transplantation. This
study is intended to determine whether the combination of plerixafor with filgrastim is
better than filgrastim alone in helping non-Hodgkin's lymphoma patients collect at least 5
million stem cells in four or less apheresis sessions.

This study was previously posted by AnorMED, Inc. In November 2006, AnorMED, Inc. was
acquired by Genzyme Corporation. Genzyme Corporation is the sponsor of the trial.

Inclusion Criteria

Inclusion Criteria (Abbreviated List):

- Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma in first or second complete or partial remission

- Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status of 0 or 1

- White Blood Cell count (WBC) > 2.5*10^9/L

- Platelet (PLT) > 100*10^9/L

Exclusion Criteria (Abbreviated List):

- Failed previous stem cell collection

- Prior autologous or allogeneic transplant

- Brain metastases or bone marrow involvement > 20%

- Radiation to pelvis

- Abnormal electrocardiogram (ECG) with rhythm disturbance (ventricular arrhythmias) or
other conduction abnormality

Type of Study:


Study Design:

Allocation: Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Caregiver, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor), Primary Purpose: Treatment

Outcome Measure:

Proportion of Participants Able to Achieve Target (≥ 5*10^6 CD34+ Cells/kg) in 4 or Fewer Days of Apheresis

Outcome Description:

Proportion of participants achieving a target of ≥ 5*10^6 CD34+ cells/kg in 4 or fewer days of apheresis. Central lab data were taken from Days 5 to 8 of the Treatment/Apheresis period. Each participant's value was calculated as the sum of all daily values collected over the 4 apheresis days.

Outcome Time Frame:

Days 5 to 8
