The granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor (GM-CSF) is a hemopoietic growth factor that regulates the production and functional activity of granulocytes and macrophages. GM-CSF is part of the complex cytokine/interleukine network. This complex network is composed of mediator molecules that participate in the immune system (see Table I). GM-CSF is also a member of the colony-stimulating factors (CSF’s) family. It has been known for a long time that CSF’s are humoral factors necessary for the control and induction of hemopoiesis (1, 2). Its name was derived from the observation that when GM-CSF is added to a semisolid culture of human bone marrow cells it stimulates the formation of pure colonies of both macrophages and neutrophils (3). GM-CSF plays a crucial role in the commitment of bone marrow stem cells, directing the proliferation and differentiation into specific precursors of the different lineages, and enhancing the survival of both progenitors and mature cells (4, 5). This cytokine is also able to potentiate the activation of mature phagocytes (neutrophils, eosinophils and macrophages) and in certain cases, it can activate directly mature phagocytes (6). Thus, GM-CSF plays an important role in host defense (7).
