Study Summary

The research question for the current study is: Is loratadine more effective than placebo in preventing G-CSF-related bone pain during autologous hematopoetic stem cell transplant in patients with lymphoma or multiple myeloma? The hypothesis is that prophylaxis with loratadine will help prevent or reduce the severity of bone pain in this setting.
