Mobilization of peripheral blood stem cells (PBSC) by granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF), at 10 micrograms/kg/day vs. 20 micrograms/kg/day (in 42 and 29 patients, respectively), was compared in children with solid tumors or leukemias. During mobilization, differences were noted in the peak values of CD34+ cells in peripheral blood (PB) in these… CONTINUE READING
