Start date February 2013
End date February 2015
Trial size 8 participants
Trial identifier NCT01852591, MCC-16727


There is no study hypothesis. The purpose of this study is to see if the Pneumococcal conjugate vaccine (PCV13), when administered before and early after an autologous peripheral stem cell transplant will induce an immune response.

Masking open label
Pneumococcal conjugate vaccine (PCV13, 0.5ml) 3 to 30 days prior to transplant and then again at 7-10 and 21-24 days after transplant
pcv13 Prevnar

Official title Exploration of Immune Response to Pneumococcal Conjugate Vaccine (PCV13) Administered Before and Early After Autologous Peripheral Stem Cell Transplant (Auto-PSCT) in Patients With Multiple Myeloma
Principal investigator Frederick L Locke, MD
Description This is a pilot study to determine the safety of PCV13 administered to patients with myeloma before and at +7-10 days and +21-24 days after autologous hematopoietic stem cell transplant; and,to quantify the immune response induced by PCV13 vaccination in patients with myeloma when administered before and early after autologous PSCT.
