The major haematological effect of lithium in man is stimulation of granulopoiesis, the most likely mode of action being an enhancement of CSA production. Consistent with this view is the observation that neutropenic states most likely to benefit from lithium treatment are those where impaired CSA activity is demonstrable. While the physiological… CONTINUE READING
