Motixafortide Acetate

What is Aphexda used for?

Motixafortide is used by people with a certain type of cancer (multiple myeloma) to prepare for stem cell transplant. Stem cells, which are found mainly in the bone marrow, turn into red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets. Motixafortide is used to help stem cells move from the bone marrow to the bloodstream so that the cells can be collected and stored. The stem cells are then given back to you by infusion after chemotherapy or radiation.

Motixafortide may cause serious (sometimes fatal) allergic reactions, usually within 30 minutes after the injection. To help prevent these side effects, your doctor will prescribe other medications (such as diphenhydramine, montelukast, and an H2 blocker) for you to receive before each dose. Carefully follow your doctor's instructions. Your health care professional will also closely monitor you for 1 hour after the injection. Get medical help right away if you notice any signs of a serious allergic reaction such as rash, itching/swelling (especially of the face, tongue, throat), severe dizziness, trouble breathing, flushing, chills, nausea, or vomiting.
