Brief Summary:
The trial is an open label Simon optimal two-stage Phase II trial of fixed doses of oral meloxicam and subcutaneous filgrastim to assess the safety and efficacy in mobilizing autologous peripheral blood stem cells (PBSC) from multiple myeloma (MM) and non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) patients planning to undergo high-dose chemotherapy with stem cell support. Clinical data regarding the cellular composition and function of the graft mobilized by this combination will be obtained.

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Estimated Enrollment : 32 participants
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Phase II Trial of Prostaglandin E2 Inhibition, Using Meloxicam, Plus Filgrastim for Mobilization of Autologous Peripheral Blood Stem Cells in Patients With Multiple Myeloma and Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma
Actual Study Start Date : March 11, 2014
Estimated Primary Completion Date : November 1, 2019
Estimated Study Completion Date : January 1, 2020


Arm Intervention/treatment
Treatment

Meloxicam and Filgrastim will be administered in fixed doses to each patient enrolled on this study. The treatments will be administered in a staggered dose schedule for a total treatment duration of 7 days prior to apheresis.

15 mg tablets of Meloxicam will be taken orally for 5 consecutive days.

10 µg/kg of Filgrastim will be subcutaneously injected for 5 consecutive days. Filgrastim may be subcutaneously injected for an additional 3 days if patients do not meet the primary endpoint for cell collection.

Drug: Meloxicam
15 mg tablets of Meloxicam will be taken orally in the morning, with or without food.
Other Name: Mobic

Drug: Filgrastim
Filgrastim will be subcutaneously injected in one or two sites at home.
Other Name: Neupogen




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number of patients who mobilize and collect at least half of the total target CD34+ cell dose in the first apheresis [ Time Frame: 4 years ]

    The objective of this study is to investigate whether meloxicam and filgrastim can result in a 20% increase in the proportion of patients who mobilize and collect at least half of the total target CD34+ cell dose in the first apheresis. As the total target CD34 dose varies with disease, the primary objective will be as follows according to disease:

    • Multiple myeloma patients: Investigate if meloxicam and filgrastim can result in an increase in the proportion of patients who mobilize and collect ≥5x106 CD34 cells/kg in the first day's apheresis, from a historical 40% to at least 60%.

    • Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma patients: Investigate if meloxicam and filgrastim can result in an increase in the proportion of patients who mobilize and collect ≥2.5x106 CD34 cells/kg in the first day's apheresis, from a historical 50% to at least 70%.



Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Toxicity Profile of Meloxicam and Filgrastim [ Time Frame: 4 years ]
    Describe the toxicity profile of the combination of Meloxicam and Filgrastim

  2. Graft Composition of Peripheral Blood Stem Cell Collection [ Time Frame: 4 years ]
    Describe the graft composition of PBSC collected using Meloxicam and Filgrastim including hematopoietic and immune cell subsets.

  3. Engraftment Kinetics of Meloxicam and Filgrastim [ Time Frame: 4 years ]
    Describe the engraftment kinetics of Meloxicam and Filgrastim mobilized PBSC in MM and NHL patients undergoing myeloablative autologous PBSC transplantation

    5. Urine M-protein ≤1 g/24 hours (MM patients only)
  6. No prior attempt at mobilizing PBSC.
  7. Patients must be at least 4 weeks from last cytotoxic chemotherapy (including alkylating, anthracyclines, epipodophylatoxins, and platinum drugs), or immunomodulatory drugs (including lenalidomide or pomalidomide, or related derivatives) at time of treatment on this protocol.
  8. Patients must be at least 2 weeks from last treatment with a proteasome inhibitor (e.g., bortezomib, carfilzomib) at time of treatment on this protocol.

    1. Women and men must use adequate birth control while taking part in this study (such as a condom or diaphragm with contraceptive cream/jelly, birth control pills, Norplant, abstinence (no sexual intercourse) or surgical sterilization.

Exclusion Criteria:

Exclude a patient if any of the following conditions are observed:

  1. Patients must not have received radiation therapy within the past 4 weeks, and not to more than 20% of hematopoiesis forming bones (spine, pelvis and proximal long bones).
  2. Patients must not have active central nervous system involvement.
