Peripheral blood stem cells (PBSCs) are preferentially used as a hematopoietic stem cell source for autologous blood stem cell transplantation (ABSCT) upon high-dose chemotherapy (HDT) in a variety of hemato-oncologic diseases. As a prerequisite, hematopoietic stem cells have to be mobilized into the peripheral blood (PB) and collected by leukapheresis (LP). Despite continuous improvements, e.g., the introduction of plerixafor, current challenges are the further optimization regarding the leukapheresis procedure, preventing collection failures, as well as benchmarking and harmonization of mobilization approaches between institutions.

This chapter summarizes the current PBSC mobilization and collection approaches and is focusing on timely orchestration of mobilization therapy, granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF) application, and peripheral blood (PB) CD34+ cell assessment. Moreover, strategies for prediction and performance assessment of the PBSC collection yield are discussed.
