- Colony-Stimulating Factors
- Accession Number
Glycoproteins found in a subfraction of normal mammalian plasma and urine. They stimulate the proliferation of bone marrow cells in agar cultures and the formation of colonies of granulocytes and/or macrophages. The factors include INTERLEUKIN-3; (IL-3); GRANULOCYTE COLONY-STIMULATING FACTOR; (G-CSF); MACROPHAGE COLONY-STIMULATING FACTOR; (M-CSF); and GRANULOCYTE-MACROPHAGE COLONY-STIMULATING FACTOR; (GM-CSF).
- ATC Classification
Drug Drug Description Sargramostim A modified form of recombinant human granulocyte-macrophage colony stimulating factor used to increase immune cell production after myelosuppressive therapy or bone marrow transplant. Filgrastim A form of recombinant human granulocyte colony stimulating factor used to induce the production of granulocytes and lower infection risk after myelosuppressive therapy. Pegfilgrastim A recombinant human granulocyte colony stimulating factor used to stimulate the production of neutrophils and prevent febrile neutropenia or infections after myelosuppressive chemotherapy. Molgramostim Molgramostim has been used in trials studying the treatment of Bronchiectasis, Cystic Fibrosis, Pulmonary Alveolar Proteinosis, Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome, and Autoimmune Pulmonary Alveolar Proteinosis. Balugrastim Balugrastim has been used in trials studying the treatment of Solid Tumors. Lenograstim A granulocyte colony-stimulating factor indicated in the reduction of duration of neutropenia in bone marrow transplant and cytotoxic chemotherapy, as well as mobilizing hematopoietic stem cells in healthy donors. Lipegfilgrastim A medication used to reduce the duration of chemotherapy-induced neutropenia and incidence of febrile neutropenia in cytotoxic chemotherapy. Darbepoetin alfa A recombinant form of human erythropoietin used to increase differentiation of progenitor cells to red blood cells in the treatment of anemia. Erythropoietin A recombinant form of human erythropoietin used to increase differentiation of progenitor cells to red blood cells in the treatment of anemia. Romiplostim A fusion protein thrombopoietin (TPO) peptide analog that increases platelet counts by binding to and activating the human TPO receptor.
