Brief Summary

This clinical trial studies peripheral blood hemapoietic stem cell mobilization with the combination of bortezomib and G-CSF (filgrastim) in multiple myeloma and non-Hodgkin lymphoma patients.

Detailed Description

PRIMARY OBJECTIVES: I. To estimate if addition of Bortezomib to the mobilization protocol will result with an increase in the levels of circulating peripheral blood stem cells (PBSCs) by at least 2-fold in blood and in the apheresis collections in up to 4-days collection protocol. II. To assess whether time to neutrophil engraftment is 12 days or less, the historical value. SECONDARY OBJECTIVES: I. To test for co-mobilization of lymphoma or myeloma cells by bortezomib and G-CSF using real time polymerase chain reaction (PCR) for non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) patients and by flow cytometry (cluster of differentiation [CD]38+/CD138+ cell) for multiple myeloma (MM) patients. II. To determine the effect of Bortezomib on the extent of mobilization of dendritic cells subsets, plasmacytoid dendritic cell (pDC)1 and pDC2 and DC1/DC2 ratio by flow cytometry.
