Brief Summary:
This pilot clinical trial studies how well desipramine hydrochloride and filgrastim works for stem cell mobilization in patients with multiple myeloma undergoing stem cell transplant. Giving colony-stimulating factors, such as filgrastim, and other drugs, such as desipramine hydrochloride, helps stem cells move from the patient's bone marrow to the blood so they can be collected and stored.

Detailed Description:

PRIMARY OBJECTIVES:

I. To study efficacy, safety, harvest kinetics and engraftment kinetics of patients undergoing autologous stem cell mobilization, mobilized with a combination of granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (GCSF) (filgrastim) with desipramine (desipramine hydrochloride) (G+D).

II. To analyze polymorphisms of adrenergic receptor beta 2 (ADRB2) and adrenergic receptor beta 3 (ADRB3) genes that correlate with mobilization efficiency.

OUTLINE:

Patients receive desipramine hydrochloride orally (PO) daily on days -3 to +4 and filgrastim PO twice daily (BID) on days 1-4. Stem cell collection begins on day 6.

After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up 1 week after completion of stem cell collection.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Success rate of stem cell mobilization (SCM) using filgrastim and desipramine to collect > 5 x 10^6 cluster of differentiation (CD)34/kg in patients with multiple myeloma (MM) who are first time mobilizers or unexposed to alkylating agents [ Time Frame: Day 5 ]
    Standard descriptive statistics will be used to summarize the data, including means, medians, standard deviations and ranges for continuous variables, and frequencies for categorical variables. The success rates observed in first-time mobilizers, along with corresponding 95% binomial confidence intervals, will be estimated.

  2. Success rate of SCM using filgrastim and desipramine to achieve a total collection of > 5 x 10^6 CD34/kg in patients with MM who failed prior mobilization or were exposed to alkylator therapy or are predicted to be difficult to mobilize [ Time Frame: Day 5 ]
    Standard descriptive statistics will be used to summarize the data, including means, medians, standard deviations and ranges for continuous variables, and frequencies for categorical variables. The success rates observed in predicted difficult mobilizers, along with corresponding 95% binomial confidence intervals, will be estimated.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Average number of days of apheresis required to collect > 5 x 10^6 CD34+/kg [ Time Frame: Up to 1 week after completion of study treatment ]
    Standard descriptive statistics will be used to summarize the data, including means, medians, standard deviations and ranges for continuous variables, and frequencies for categorical variables.

  2. Incidence of adverse events graded by the National Cancer Institute Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events version 4 [ Time Frame: Up to 1 week after completion of study treatment ]
    Standard descriptive statistics will be used to summarize the data, including means, medians, standard deviations and ranges for continuous variables, and frequencies for categorical variables.

  3. Time to neutrophil engraftment: first of three consecutive days with absolute neutrophil count (ANC) > 500/ul or first day with ANC > 1000/ul in the absence of growth factor support [ Time Frame: Up to 1 week after completion of study treatment ]
    Standard descriptive statistics will be used to summarize the data, including means, medians, standard deviations and ranges for continuous variables, and frequencies for categorical variables.

  4. Time to platelet engraftment: first of three days of platelets > 20,000/ul without transfusion [ Time Frame: Up to 1 week after completion of study treatment ]
    Standard descriptive statistics will be used to summarize the data, including means, medians, standard deviations and ranges for continuous variables, and frequencies for categorical variables.
