Plerixafor

Identification

Name
Plerixafor
Accession Number
DB06809
Description

Plerixafor is a hematopoietic stem cell mobilizer. It is used to stimulate the release of stem cells from the bone marrow into the blood in patients with non-Hodgkin lymphoma and multiple myeloma for the purpose of stimulating the immune system. These stem cells are then collected and used in autologous stem cell transplantation to replace blood-forming cells that were destroyed by chemotherapy. Plerixafor has orphan drug status in the United States and European Union; it was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration on December 15, 2008.

Pharmacology

Indication

Used in combination with granulocyte-colony stimulating factor (G-CSF, filgrastim) to mobilize hematopoietic stem cells to the peripheral blood for collection and subsequent autologous transplantation in patients with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma (NHL) and multiple myeloma (MM).

Pharmacodynamics

Plerixafor is a bicyclam derivative that antagonizes CXCR4 by binding to three acidic residues in the ligand-binding pocket: Asp171, Asp262, and Glu288. Blood levels of CD34+ cells peaked at 9 hours after administration of 0.24 mg/kg plerixafor in healthy subjects. In patients that have non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma or multiple myeloma, blood levels of CD34+ peaked at 6 hours. In combination with a G-CSF, circulating CD34+ cells in the peripheral blood peaked at 9-14 hours.

Mechanism of action

Plerixafor inhibits the CXCR4 chemokine receptors on CD34+ cells and reversibly blocks binding of the ligand, stromal cell-derived factor-1-alpha (SDF-1α). By blocking the interaction between SDF-1α and CXCR4 with plerixafor, mobilization of progenitor cells is triggered. Filgrastim, a granulocyte-colony stimulating factor, is added to enhance CD34+ cell mobilization, thus increasing the yield of stem cells- an important determinant of graft adequacy.

Absorption

Pharmacokinetic profile follows a two-compartment model with first-order absorption. A median peak plasma concentration of 0.24 mg/kg of plerixafor occurred 30-60 minutes after subcutaneous dose.

Volume of distribution

0.3 L/kg

Protein binding

58%

Metabolism

Metabolism does not involved CYP isoenzymes

Route of elimination

0.24 mg/kg, healthy subjects: ~70% of the parent drug is excreted in urine in the first 24 hours.

Half-life

Terminal elimination half-life, NHL patients: 4.4 hours; Terminal elimination half-life, MM patients: 5.6 hours; Terminal elimination half-life, Hodgkin's lymphoma patients: 3.5 hours; Distribution half-life: 0.3 hours

Clearance

Total plasma clearance: 4.38 L/h; Renal clearance: 3.15 L/h
