Background information

Plerixafor (Mozobil) is indicated in combination with granulocyte-colony stimulating factor (G-CSF) to mobilize hematopoietic stem cells (HSC) to the peripheral blood for collection and subsequent autologous transplantation in patients with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma (NHL) and multiple myeloma (MM). Due to the cost prohibitive nature of Mozobil, the medication is intended to be used in assisting in the mobilization of stem cells for patients who previously or are currently failing to meet their target collection goal.
