Uses

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.
