Mobilization of Blood Stem Cells with Recombinant Human (rh)G-CSF in Patients with Hematological Malignancies and Solid Tumors
Peripheral blood stem cells (PBSC) are being increasingly used for autografting in patients with malignant diseases to circumvent the myelotoxic effects of high-dose therapy . It is generally accepted that the kinetics of hematological recovery following autografting essentially depend on the number of hemopoietic stem cells transplanted [2, 3]. In the past, different methods have thus been explored to improve blood stem cell collection [4, 5].
