Controversies arise when considering routine use of granulocyte colony-stimulating factor to boost the immune response.
The WBC count was (6.4 [+ or -] 0.2) x [10.sup.9]/L, median value 5.8 (range: 1.7-20.3) x [10.sup.9]/L; granulocyte count (4.3 [+ or -] 0.1) x [10.sup.9]/L, median value 3.7 (range: 0.7-18.3) x [10.sup.9]/L; neutrophil count (4.2 [+ or -] 0.2) x [10.sup.9]/L, median value 3.9 (range: 0.9-17.9) x [10.sup.9]/L; lymphocyte count (1.5 [+ or -] 0.0) x [10.sup.9]/L, median value 1.4 (range: 0.3-4.2 x [10.sup.9]/L); and platelet count (180.1 [+ or -] 5.1) x [10.sup.9]/L, median value 170 (range: 27-543) x [10.sup.9]/L.
Stability of labelled cells was assessed incubating granulocytes, lymphocytes, and platelets in PBS at 37[degrees]C.
The existence of complement-dependent IgM antibodies against granulocytes in the serum of a patient who was receiving ATDs and suddenly developed agranulocytosis was reported, but antibody-mediated cytotoxicity was evident only against granulocytes taken from 2 of the 8 donors, suggesting that only a subset of patients receiving ATD may be susceptible to agranulocytosis [17].
Granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF) positive effects on muscle fiber degeneration and gait recovery after nerve lesion in MDX mice.
[15] While other study indicated that in vitro granulocyte G-CSF augmented ChAT activity in mouse embryonic primary septal neurons and in vivo GM-CSF promoted survival of septal cholinergic neurons in adult rats which had undergone fimbria-fornix transections.
Treatment with GTE significantly increased PLIR of monocytes and granulocytes at T3, whereas a nonsignificant increase was observed for PLIR of lymphocytes (Table 1).
