Collecting Stem Cells in Patients With Waldenstrom's Macroglobulinemia
Recruitment status was Recruiting
RATIONALE: Collecting and storing stem cells to study in the laboratory may help doctors learn more about collecting stem cells from patients who have undergone treatment for Waldenstrom's macroglobulinemia.
PURPOSE: This laboratory study is collecting stem cells from patients with Waldenstrom's macroglobulinemia.
|Official Title:||Autologous Stem Cell Harvesting for Waldenstrom's Macroglobulinemia|
- Number of days to adequate stem cell harvest [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
|Study Start Date:||November 2005|
- Harvest and store adequate CD34+ stem cells from patients with Waldenstrom's macroglobulinemia (WM) for potential future use in transplantation strategies.
- Evaluate the ability to harvest stem cells after therapy for WM (e.g., fludarabine-based chemotherapy) by evaluating the number of days to adequate harvest.
- Collect aliquots of stem cells for future research analysis as part of a WM database project.
OUTLINE: Patients undergo collection of autologous stem cells beginning on day 4 or 5 and continuing until an adequate number of stem cells are collected. Cells are then cryopreserved.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 40 patients will be accrued for this study.
