Background and aim: High-dose chemotherapy followed by autologous stem cell transplantation (ASCT) has been considered the standard of treatment care for patients with multiple myeloma (MM). Insufficient mobilization and harvest of peripheral stem cells can be a major obstacle for performing ASCT. This is resulting in a lacking opportunity of cure in patients with MM. The aim of this study was to evaluate the factors which influence mobilization failure in patients with MM.
