Condition g-csf, multiple myeloma, febrile episode, filgrastim, leograstim
Treatments filgrastim, lenograstim
Phase phase 3
Sponsor University of Pisa
Start date December 2004
End date April 2007
Trial size 180 participants
Trial identifier NCT00932217, Pisa 01


To evaluate the difference in the incidence of febrile episodes in patients undergoing stem cells mobilization with chemotherapy and filgrastim versus chemotherapy and lenograstim.

A febrile episode will be considered as: body temperature > 38°C for two measurements in the 24 hours with an interval of 6 hours at least between the two measurements.
