    THE current study was undertaken to evaluate the effects of granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor (GM-CSF) and cyclic AMP (cAMP) signaling interaction on human neutrophil apoptosis, either occurring spontaneously or induced by Fas antigen activation. Results show that GM-CSF,...

    Granulocyte colony-stimulating factor is a potent stimulator for neutrophils in the circulation as well as those progenitors to be increased and be grown in the bone marrow. Recombinant forms of this colony-stimulating factor, therefore, are widely using in the various kinds of clinical fields...

    We report the use of granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF) in a renal transplant recipient in whom neutropenia developed following a presumed viral infection. G-CSF was successful in producing a rise in neutrophil count which coincided with a resolution of fever; there was no adverse...

    Background: The granulocyte colony-stimulating factor receptor (G-CSFR) plays a critical role in maintaining homeostatic levels of circulating neutrophils (PMN). The mechanisms modulating G-CSFR surface expression to prevent chronic neutrophilia are poorly understood. Here, we report that...
