The purpose of this study was to investigate whether storing mobilized peripheral blood progenitor cell (PBPC) collections overnight before CD34+ selection may delay platelet count recovery after high-dose chemotherapy and CD34+-enriched PBPC re-infusion. Lymphoma patients underwent PBPC mobilization with cyclophosphamide 4 g/m2 i.v. and G-CSF 10 microg/kg/day subcutaneously. Patients were prospectively randomized to have each PBPC collection enriched for CD34+ cells with the CellPro CEPRATE SC System either immediately or after overnight storage at 4 degrees C. Thirty-four patients were randomized to overnight storage and 34 to immediate processing of PBPC; 15 were excluded from analysis due to tumor progression or inadequate CD34+ cell mobilization. PBPC from 23 patients were stored overnight, while 30 subjects underwent immediate CD34+ selection and cryopreservation. Median yield of CD34+ enrichment was 43.6% in the immediate processing group compared to 39.1% in the overnight storage group (P = 0.339). Neutrophil recovery >500 x 10(9)/l occurred a median of 11 days (range 9-16 days) in the overnight storage group compared to 10.5 days (range 9-21 days) in the immediate processing group (P = 0.421). Median day to platelet transfusion independence was 13 (range 7-43) days in the overnight storage group vs 13.5 (range 8-35) days in those assigned to immediate processing (P = 0.933). We conclude that storage of PBPC overnight at 4 degrees C allows pooling of consecutive-day collections resulting in decreased costs and processing time without compromising neutrophil and platelet engraftment after infusion of CD34+-selected progenitor cells.
