Safety Study of Parathyroid Hormone in Patients Needing Additional Stem Cell Mobilization.
The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government.
Read our disclaimer for details.
The purpose of this study is to determine the safety of parathyroid hormone in combination with G-CSF when used as a stem cell mobilization regimen for patients who fail to mobilize sufficient progenitor stem cells after one or two attempts.
Patients will start treatment within 21 days of the determination of inadequate mobilization. PTH treatment will be given in 4 cohorts: 40 mcg, 60 mcg, 80 mcg, and 10 mcg. PTH will be given on day 1 and continue until stem cell collections are complete or a maximum of 20 days. G-CSF 10 mcg/kg will be given on days 10-14 and continue until stem cell collections are complete. Patients with inadequate CD34+ cells on Day 14 will meet off study criteria and not continue with PTH/G-CSF.
