Effects of stem cell factor and granulocyte colony-stimulating factor on granulocyte recovery and Candida albicans infection in granulocytopenic mice.

Abstract

The combined action of stem cell factor (SCF) and granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF) on granulocyte recovery and infection with Candida albicans was studied. In mice rendered granulocytopenic with 200 mg/kg cyclophosphamide, daily coinjection of SCF (100 micrograms/kg) and G-CSF (10 micrograms/kg) for 5 days synergistically stimulated granulocyte… (More)
