Therapy for neoplasma is limited by hematological side effects of tumor-destructive therapy and, in part, makes expensive supportive care necessary to overcome and treat leukopenia and thrombocytopenia and their consequences. Thrombocytopenia is a major clinical problem caused by chemotherapy and radiotherapy. An effective and very cost-effective option for treating moderate neutropenia is the administration of lithium carbonate. Lithium induces the release of colony-stimulating factors (CSF… CONTINUE READING
