Additional comments
In 2015 werden 11 volwassenen behandeld met plerixafor. De verhouding van 1-18 jarigen ten opzichte van 18+ in Nederland in 2017 was 1:3,7. Dit zou betekenen dat er 3 kinderen in aanmerking zouden komen voor deze indicatie-uitbreiding. In het prinses Maxima centrum werden in 2018 6 kinderen behandeld met Mozobil, in 2019 tot op heden 4 kinderen.

Additional comments
In 2015 werd er €10.648 vergoed per gebruiker van plerixafor. Aangezien plerixafor per kg lichaamsgewicht wordt toegediend zullen de kosten per patiënt per jaar wellicht iets lager uitvallen.
