Colony Stimulating Factor (CSF) Print E-mail

Dr. Kennedy Colony-stimulating factor (CSF) is a laboratory-made agent similar to a substance in the body that stimulates the production of white blood cells. Treatment with colony-stimulating factors (CSFs) can help the blood- forming tissue recover from the effects of chemotherapy and radiation therapy. The CSFs include granulocyte colony-stimulating factors (G-CSF) and granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factors (GM-CSF). (Erythropoitein is the hormone made by the body which doctors use in the recombinate form to stimulate the production of red blood cells which may also be depressed by radiation and chemotherapy.)
