Study Design
Allocation: Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment
Name: Granix Type: Drug
Name: High dose melphalan (HDR) Type: Drug
Name: Autologous Stem Cell Transplant (ASCT) Type: Procedure
Overall Status
This randomized phase II trial compares how well adding filgrastim to melphalan before a stem cell transplant works in treating patients with multiple myeloma. Chemotherapy drugs, such as melphalan, are given to prepare the bone marrow for the stem cell transplant. Giving colony-stimulating factors, such as filgrastim, may help multiple myeloma cells move from the patient's bone marrow to the blood where they may be more sensitive to treatment with melphalan. It is not yet known whether adding filgrastim to melphalan before a stem cell transplant will work better than melphalan alone in treating multiple myeloma.
