Plerixafor added to G-CSF allows mobilization of a sufficient number of hematopoietic progenitors without impacting the efficacy of TCR-alpha/beta depletion in pediatric haploidentical and genoidentical donors failing to mobilize with G-CSF alone.

Background: Collection of a large number of early hematopoietic progenitors is essential for allogeneic apheresis products intended for TCR-alpha/beta depletion.

Materials And Methods: We added plerixafor 0.24 mg/kg body weight (bw) on day 4 of high-dose filgrastim mobilization 10 hours prior to apheresis in 16 (30.5%) pediatric allogeneic donors who failed to recover a sufficient number of CD34+ cells.

Results: On day 4 of G-CSF, the median CD34+ cell count in peripheral blood was 6 per μL (range 4-9 per μL) in 6 poor mobilizers and 16 per μL (range 12-19 per μL) in insufficient mobilizers. In all donors, the threshold of 50 CD34+ cells/μL was achieved, and the median increase was 14.8-fold in poor mobilizers and 6.5-fold in insufficient mobilizers, whereas it was 3.45-fold increase in those mobilized with G-CSF alone.

Discussion: In all donors, a predefined number of >10 × 10 CD34+ cells/kg of recipient bw before depletion was reached in the apheresis product. The use of plerixafor did not affect the purity of further TCR-alpha/beta depletion. Side effects were mild to moderate and consisted of nausea and vomiting.

Conclusion: Thus, the safety and high efficacy of plerixafor was proven in healthy pediatric allogeneic hematopoietic cell donors.
