Abstract

We aimed to assess the efficacy of vinorelbine plus granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF) for chemo-mobilization of CD34(+) hematopoietic progenitor cells (HPC) in patients with multiple myeloma and to identify adverse risk factors for successful mobilization. Vinorelbine 35 mg/m(2) was administered intravenously on day 1 in an outpatient setting. Filgrastim 5 μg/kg body weight (BW) was given twice daily subcutaneously from day 4 until the end of the collection procedure. Leukapheresis was scheduled to start on day 8 and be performed for a maximum of 3 consecutive days until at least 4 × 10(6) CD34(+) cells per kg BW were collected. Overall, 223 patients were mobilized and 221 (99%) patients proceeded to leukapheresis. Three (1.5%) patients required an unscheduled hospitalization after chemo-mobilization because of neutropenic fever and renal failure (n = 1), severe bone pain (n = 1), and abdominal pain with constipation (n = 1). In 211 (95%) patients, the leukaphereses were started as planned at day 8, whereas in 8 (3%) patients the procedure was postponed to day 9 and in 2 (1%) patients to day 10. In the great majority of patients (77%), the predefined amount of HPC could be collected with 1 leukapheresis. Forty-four (20%) patients needed a second leukapheresis, whereas only 6 (3%) patients required a third leukapheresis procedure. The median number of CD34(+) cells collected was 6.56 × 10(6) (range, .18 to 25.9 × 10(6)) per kg BW at the first day of leukapheresis and 7.65 × 10(6) (range, .18 to 25.9 × 10(6)) per kg BW in total. HPC collection was successful in 212 (95%) patients after a maximum of 3 leukaphereses. Patient age (P = .02) and prior exposition to lenalidomide (P < .001) were independent risk factors for a lower HPC amount collected in multiple regression analysis. Vinorelbine plus G-CSF enables a very reliable prediction of the timing of leukapheresis and results in successful HPC collection in 95% of the patients.
