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.

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
Actual Primary Completion Date : November 6, 2018
Actual Study Completion Date : February 21, 2019


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. Percent of Patients Who Mobilize and Collect at Least Half of the Total Target CD34+ Cell Dose in the First Apheresis [ Time Frame: within 100 days of transplant ]

    Percent of patients who mobilize and collect at least half of the total target CD34+ cell dose in the first apheresis with binomial exact confidence intervals according to disease:

    Multiple myeloma patients: percent of patients with >= 5x106 CD34 cells/kg in the first day's apheresis. Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma patients: percent of patients with >= 2.5x106 CD34 cells/kg in the first day's apheresis.



Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number of Patients With Treatment Related Adverse Events Grade 3 or Higher for Nonhematological Toxicity [ Time Frame: within 100 days of transplant ]
    Number of unique patients who had a treatment related (possible, probable or definite) non-hematological adverse event that was graded 3 or greater using Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (CTCAE) version 4.0.

  2. Summary Statistics for Graft Composition of Peripheral Blood Stem Cell Collection at Each Time Point [ Time Frame: Cycle 2, Days 1-4, within 100 days of transplant ]
    Mean and Standard Deviation of the Graft Composition of Peripheral Blood Stem Cell Collection (CD34 (x10^6cells/kg)) at each time point collected during Cycle 2.

  3. Time to Neutrophil Engraftment [ Time Frame: within 100 days of transplant ]
    Time to neutrophil engraftment will be analyzed by the Kaplan-Meier method. The time to engraftment of neutrophils is defined as the time from day 0 to the date of the first of three consecutive days after transplantation during which the absolute neutrophils count (ANC) is at least 0.5 x109/l. The median and 95% confidence intervals will be provided. Only patients with neutrophil engraftment will be included.

  4. Time to Platelet Engraftment [ Time Frame: within 100 days of transplant ]
    Time to platelet engraftment will be analyzed by the Kaplan-Meier method. The time to engraftment of platelets is defined as the time from day 0 to the first of seven consecutive Complete Blood Counts (CBCs) obtained on different days after transplantation during which the platelet count is at least 20 x109/l. The CBCs obtained should be at least seven days after the most recent platelet transfusion. The median and 95% confidence intervals will be provided. Only patients achieving platelet engraftment will be included.

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).
