Granulocyte colony stimulating factor exacerbates antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibody vasculitis.

Abstract

OBJECTIVES Granulocyte colony stimulating factor (GCSF) is important in mobilising neutrophils from the bone marrow but also has a range of proinflammatory effects. We therefore decided to investigate the role of GCSF in antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibody (ANCA) vasculitis. METHODS We measured GCSF levels in the serum of 38 patients with active ANCA… (More)
