G-CSF is a stimulatory factor of granulocyte colony formation. In vitro and in vivo G-CSF enhances functions of mature cells. Indirect evidence of this might be the increase of the activity of granulocyte enzymes participating in phagocytosis and killing tumor cells. The purpose of this investigation was to evaluate in the plasma of breast cancer patients the level of adhesion molecule - sL-selection, as a measure of mature granulocyte activity and MPO, granulocyte enzyme responsible for the… CONTINUE READING
