Investigational drug may improve stem cell transplantation for multiple myeloma patients (Links to an external site)

Shown are multiple myeloma cells from a patient. An international phase 3 clinical trial led by Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis has shown that the investigational drug motixafortide — when combined with the standard therapy for mobilizing stem cells — significantly increased the number of stem cells that can be harvested, compared with treatment with the standard agent alone. If approved, the combination with motixafortide potentially would improve stem cell transplantation for multiple myeloma patients.

The standard treatment for patients with multiple myeloma often includes stem cell transplantation in which the patient’s own stem cells are harvested and stored while the patient receives intensive chemotherapy to kill the cancer. Then, the patient’s stem cells are returned to the patient to help with recovery. But for a significant proportion of patients, […]
