About the study

A total of 207 subjects will be randomized into the study which will employ a double-blind placebo-controlled setting to assess the efficacy and safety of G-CSF + BL-8040 as compared to G-CSF + placebo.

  3. Eligible for Autologous Hematopoietic stem cell transplantation according at the investigator discretion.
  4. The subjects should be in first or second CR (including CR and SCR) or PR (including PR and VGPR)
