Similar dynamics of intraapheresis autologous CD34+ recruitment and collection efficiency in patients undergoing mobilization with or without plerixafor

Academic Article


  • Background Compared with growth factor (G) alone, the combination of G with plerixafor (G + P) increases peripheral blood CD34+ count (PB-CD34+) and improves CD34+ collection yield (yCD34+) in multiple myeloma and lymphoma patients undergoing autologous hematopoietic progenitor cell (AHPC) mobilization. It is unknown whether the improved yCD34+ with G + P results entirely from expansion of PB-CD34+ or also from increased intraapheresis CD34+ recruitment and collection efficiency.
