Initial response to treatment was satisfactory with progressive elevation of white blood cell (WBC) and neutrophil counts, reaching normal values after 3 days of treatment; therefore G-CSF therapy was discontinued.
G-CSF (granulocyte-colony stimulating factor), also known as colony-stimulating factor 3 (CSF 3), is a glycoprotein that stimulates the bone marrow to produce granulocytes and stem cells and release them into the bloodstream.
Given that there have been no reports concerning the effects of the G-CSF on ovaries damaged by CTX, in the present study, for the first time, we evaluated the effects of the G-CSF on damaged ovaries after creating a chemotherapy model with CTX and compared the results with the effects of BMSC transplantation into ovaries and the effects of the coadministration of BMSCs and the G-CSF on ovaries damaged by chemotherapy in rats.

Pelmeg (originator Neulasta3) is a pegylated version of granulocyte-colony stimulating factor (G-CSF) for the treatment of chemotherapy-induced neutropenia that works by stimulating the bone marrow to produce more neutrophils, thereby reducing the incidence of infection.
Objective: To determine the effectiveness of granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF) in the reduction of atherosclerotic lesions in a rabbit animal model.
Chemotherapy is associated with numerous side effects including neutropenia, and therefore granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF) is routinely used in order to improve neutrophil renewal [2].
