Trial Information

Treatment With AMD3100 in Multiple Myeloma Patients to Mobilize Peripheral Blood Progenitor Cells For Collection and for Transplantation

This study will examine whether 240 µg/kg plerixafor given alone for up to 4 days is safe
and well tolerated in multiple myeloma (MM) patients. In addition, this study determines if
240 µg/kg plerixafor alone can be used to mobilize peripheral blood progenitor cells (PBPCs)
for transplantation in MM patients. The minimum number of CD34+ cells to collect is 2*10^6
CD34+ cells/kg and the target is ≧4*10^6 CD34+ cells/kg. Success of transplant engraftment
will be measured by the number of days to polymorphonuclear leukocytes (PMN) and platelet
(PLT) engraftment. Durability of engraftment will be assessed for a minimum of one year.

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:

Exclusion Criteria:

- Patient received 2 or more alkylating agents, such as VBMCP (a combination of
Vincristine, BCNU (Bis-Chloronitrosourea), Melphalan, Cyclophosphamide, and

- Patient received a total dose of ≧200 mg of prior melphalan

- A co-morbid condition which, in the view of the investigators, renders the patient at
high risk from treatment complications

- History of ventricular arrhythmias

- Patient received thalidomide within 10 days prior to receiving the first dose of

- Patients who previously received experimental therapy within 4 weeks of enrolling in
this protocol or who are currently enrolled in another experimental protocol during
the mobilization phase

Type of Study:


Study Design:

Allocation: Non-Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment

Outcome Measure:

Number of Participants Who Achieved ≥4*10^6 CD34+ Cells/kg

Outcome Description:

Number of participants achieving a target of ≥ 4*10^6 CD34+ cells/kg during apheresis for up to 4 consecutive days. Apheresis was performed six hours following treatment with plerixafor 240 µg/kg (alone). Target was calculated as the sum of all daily values collected from central laboratory data over up to 4 apheresis days.

Outcome Time Frame:

Day 1 up to day 4
