Evaluation of the Drug Plerixafor in Combination With Chemotherapy and G-CSF for Stem Cell Collection
The purpose of this study is to test whether the addition of the drug plerixafor to treatment with chemotherapy and G-CSF can better activate your bone marrow stem cells to improve the chances of transplant. The study will look for the activation of a certain type of blood cell, called CD34+ cells in patients who receive plerixafor, chemotherapy and G-CSF. The investigators will follow the number of patients that achieve the target numbers of CD34+ cells. The number of patients achieving the target level of CD34+ cells, and the total number of CD34+ cells, will be compared to the numbers in previous studies testing just chemotherapy and G-CSF, without plerixafor.
The investigators will also test the safety of the combination of plerixafor with chemotherapy and G-CSF and look at the success of the transplantation after 12 months.

Plerixafor + Chemo and G-CSF
Patients who receive a combination of Plerixafor, chemotherapy and G-CSF.
240 µg/kg subcutaneous injection on the day that the absolute neutrophil count (ANC) is > 1500/mm3 and on each day of apheresis for a total of 4 aphereses or the target CD34 cell dose has been reached.
