Our preliminary data indicate that rosiglitazone may be myeloprotective. We investigated whether it can modify bone marrow recovery. Five-day pre-treatment with rosiglitazone significantly accelerated recovery of 5-fluorouracil-damaged bone marrow in mice. Frequency and femoral content of granulocyte-macrophage progenitors reached mean baseline faster in(More)
Insulin promotes survival of haemopoietic progenitors. We investigated if rosiglitazone, an insulin sensitizer, could confer protection against 5-fluorouracil (5-FU)-induced myelotoxicity in mice. The decrease in bone marrow cellularity, frequency and content of granulocyte-macrophage progenitors (CFU-GM) characterized myelotoxicity in mice, while insulin(More)
Haematopoietic colony-stimulating factors are used frequently to moderate myelotoxicity, but administration of granulocyte-colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF) prior to chemotherapy actually may worsen the toxic effects on bone marrow. This is important in the design of clinical cancer treatment protocols. Previously, we found that rosiglitazone may protect(More)
