Effect of Eltrombopag Plus Granulocyte Colony-stimulating Factor (G-CSF) on Human CD34+ Cell Mobilization in Multiple Myeloma Patients Undergoing Autologous Stem Cell Transplant (ASCT)

This study is currently recruiting participants. (see Contacts and Locations)

Eltrombopag may improve the cell collection available for Autologous Stem Cell Transplant(ASCT). The overall goal is to determine if adding Eltrombopag to the standard ASCT will increase the number of blood cells collected and reduce the number of times blood needs to be collected. This study will also determine the highest dose of Eltrombopag that can be used without causing serious side effects.

Condition Intervention

Drug: Eltrombopag

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Open Label

Further study details as provided by Dana-Farber Cancer Institute:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Evaluate the median fold increase in the number of CD34+ cells/kg mobilized at each dose level. [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
  • Evaluate the number of apheresis procedures required to obtain at least 2 x 10^6 CD34+ cells/kg at each dose level [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
  • Determine the maximum tolerated dose of eltrombopag with granulocyte colony-stimulating factor. [ Time Frame: 1 year ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Evaluate the median fold increase in platelet counts at each of the dose levels [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
  • Evaluate the median fold increase in hematopoietic colony forming capacity of CD34+ cells at each dose level [ Time Frame: 1 year ]

Estimated Enrollment: 16
Study Start Date: March 2011
Estimated Study Completion Date: December 2018
Estimated Primary Completion Date: December 2016 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
