Granulocyte colony-stimulating factor administration: adverse events.

Recombinant human granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF) has been in clinical use for approximately 2 decades. In healthy donors, it has been used to mobilize peripheral blood progenitor cells for hematopoietic stem cell transplantation and granulocytes for apheresis collection. In patients, it has been used to decrease the duration of neutropenia after chemotherapy and to offset the neutropenia due to myelodysplasia, acquired immunodeficiency syndrome, and genetic disorders of granulocyte production. As the number of uses of G-CSF in clinical practice grows, more side effects of this generally safe pharmaceutical agent are being recognized. Our objective in this article is to provide an in-depth review of the reported adverse events associated with the use of G-CSF.
