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.
Information provided by (Responsible Party):
Edmund Waller, Emory University
  Purpose
The purpose of this study is to determine whether or not the injection site of cytokines, or growth factors, has an effect on peripheral blood stem cell collection.

Condition Intervention Phase
Cytokines Drug: G-CSF, GM-CSF administered at extremities Drug: G-CSF and GMCSF administered at abdomen Phase 2

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Phase II Single Institution Randomized Study Comparing Cytokine Administration Sites for Mobilization of Peripheral Hematopoietic Progenitor Cells for Patients Undergoing Autologous Hematopoietic Progenitor Cell Transplant

Further study details as provided by Edmund Waller, Emory University:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • The Total Number of CD34+ Cells Collected. [ Time Frame: 4 days ]
  • Number of Participants for Whom Target Number of CD34+ Cells Were Collected. [ Time Frame: 7 days ]
    Target numbers of CD34+ cells for a single autologous transplant are typically at least 5.0 * 10^6 cells/kg, a cell dose that consistently results in rapid cell engraftment


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Total Number of Days of Apheresis [ Time Frame: 7 days ]
    the number of days of apheresis required to collect target numbers of CD34+ cells.


Enrollment: 35
Study Start Date: April 2008
Study Completion Date: February 2011
Primary Completion Date: September 2009 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Active Comparator: Abdomen
These subjects will have their cytokine injections administered only to their abdomen.
Drug: G-CSF and GMCSF administered at abdomen
Injection site Abdomen: G-CSF injections will commence on the day after completion of mobilization chemotherapy, at least 24 hours after completion of the last chemotherapy dose. On the seventh day of cytokine administration, GMCSF injections will be started, and patients will maintain a BID schedule of G-CSF/GM-CSF until stem cell collection is complete.
Other Name: Neupogen, Leukine, growth factors
Active Comparator: Extremities
The extremity arm will have their injections administered to their upper and/or lower extremities.
Drug: G-CSF, GM-CSF administered at extremities
Injection site Extremities: G-CSF injections will commence on the day after completion of mobilization chemotherapy, at least 24 hours after completion of the last chemotherapy dose. On the seventh day of cytokine administration, GMCSF injections will be started, and patients will maintain a twice daily schedule of G-CSF/GM-CSF until stem cell collection is complete.
Other Name: Neupogen, Leukine, growth factors

Detailed Description:

The purpose of this study is to determine the preferred injection site for G-CSF and GM-CSF, which are cytokines, or growth factors. The doctor may also choose to use these growth factors in combination with chemotherapy to increase the number of stem cells in the blood. Both options are established and are effective in increasing the number of stem cells in the blood.

Patients will receive one shot under the skin twice a day for approximately 12-15 days after receiving chemotherapy through the time your cells are being collected. Patients will be randomly assigned to receive growth factors administered either to their abdomen or to their extremities. Both shots will always be given either in the abdomen or in the extremities.
