Mecapegfilgrastim With Chemotherapy for Peripheral Blood Stem Cell Mobilization in MM and Lymphoma

Study Purpose

This is a multicenter prospective study to evaluate the efficacy and safety of chemotherapy combined with a single dose of subcutaneous(SC) injection mecapegfilgrastim on day 2 or day 5 after chemotherapy for autologous peripheral blood stem cell (PBSC) mobilization in patients with multiple myeloma or lymphoma.

Recruitment Criteria

Accepts Healthy Volunteers

Healthy volunteers are participants who do not have a disease or condition, or related conditions or symptoms

Study Type

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 - 65 Years
Gender All

Trial Details

Trial ID:

This trial id was obtained from, 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.

Phase 2

Additional Details

Subjects eligible for autologous stem-cell transplantation are randomized to receive a single dose of 12mg mecapegfilgrastim SC on day 2 or day 5 after chemotherapy for PBSC mobilization. According to the protocol, high-dose cyclophosphamide (50mg/kg or 2g/m2, for 2 days) is given to patients with MM, and high-dose etoposide (1.5-1.8g/m2, single dose ) is administered to patients with lymphoma. Apheresis is performed according to the standard institutional regulations. The primary point is to evaluate the percentage of successful mobilization, defined as the cumulative collection of ≥2×10^6/kg CD34+ cells in three or fewer apheresis.
