A Phase III, Randomized, Double-Blinded, Placebo-Controlled, Multi-Centre Study Evaluating the Safety, Tolerability, and Efficacy of Combination Treatment of BL-8040 and G-CSF as Compared to Placebo and G-CSF for the Mobilization of Hematopoietic Stem Cells for Autologous Transplantation in Subjects with Multiple Myeloma

Principal Investigator

Sarah Nagle

Study Purpose

This study is for patients with multiple myeloma who are undergoing autologous transplant. It compares two methods to increase the number of stem cells in the blood, which are collected from patients before their transplant. The study tries to find out if a study drug (BL-8040) added to usual care will help make more cells available for collection than the usual care with no study drug added. The study also tries to find out if the study drug combined with usual care will work faster than the usual care without the study drug.
