Accepts Healthy Volunteers
Healthy volunteers are participants who do not have a disease or condition, or related conditions or symptoms
An interventional clinical study is where participants are assigned to receive one or more interventions (or no intervention) so that researchers can evaluate the effects of the interventions on biomedical or health-related outcomes.
An observational clinical study is where participants identified as belonging to study groups are assessed for biomedical or health outcomes.
Searching Both is inclusive of interventional and observational studies.
|Eligible Ages||18 Years - 75 Years|
This trial id was obtained from ClinicalTrials.gov, a service of the U.S. National Institutes of Health, providing information on publicly and privately supported clinical studies of human participants with locations in all 50 States and in 196 countries.
Phase 1: Studies that emphasize safety and how the drug is metabolized and excreted in humans.
Phase 2: Studies that gather preliminary data on effectiveness (whether the drug works in people who have a certain disease or condition) and additional safety data.
Phase 3: Studies that gather more information about safety and effectiveness by studying different populations and different dosages and by using the drug in combination with other drugs.
Phase 4: Studies occurring after FDA has approved a drug for marketing, efficacy, or optimal use.

|Overall Status||Not yet recruiting|
The disease, disorder, syndrome, illness, or injury that is being studied.
Subjects with multiple myeloma (MM) who are considered eligible for high-dose therapy and autologous stem cell transplantation by the transplant team at WCI will be enrolled in the study. Subjects will receive HBO therapy on Days 0, +1 and +2 of the transplant. The treatment consists of exposure to hyperbaric oxygen at 2.5 atmospheric absolutes for a total of 90 minutes after compression to 2.5 atmosphere absolutes in a monoplace hyperbaric chamber (Model 3200/3200R, Sechrist Industries, Inc., USA), breathing 100% oxygen. Subjects will be in the chamber for a total of 120 minutes as approximately 10-15 minutes will be spent during the compression and decompression phases and subjects will have 5-10 minute room air breaks every 30 minutes of hyperbaric oxygen treatment. Subjects will be seen daily until neutrophil recovery is documented . After neutrophil recovery is documented, the subjects will be seen in clinic at least weekly through day +100. A final visit will be scheduled day +100. As part of routine care, subjects will be followed daily or as directed by the treating physician until neutrophil recovery, defined as three consecutive days of achieving a neutrophil count of >500/mm3. Laboratory testing will occur per institutional guidelines. Follow-up will continue until Day +100. Donor chimerism and disease status will be determined by bone marrow biopsy on Day +30 and day +100 post-transplant.
Experimental: Experimental Arm:single
Repeated treatments with hyperbaric oxygen on Days 0, +1 and +2 of high-dose therapy melphalan and autologous transplants.
Drug: - Hyperbaric oxygen
The treatment consists of exposure to hyperbaric oxygen at 2.5 atmospheric absolutes (ATA) for a total of 90 minutes after compression to 2.5 atmosphere absolutes (ATA) in a monoplace hyperbaric chamber breathing 100% oxygen. The subjects will be in the chamber for a total of 120 minutes as approximately 10-15 minutes are spent during the compression and decompression phases and subjects have 5-10 minute room air breaks every 30 minutes of hyperbaric oxygen treatment.
