PURPOSE To determine if an injection of granulocyte colony stimulating factor (G-CSF) prevoulatory can enable oocyte release from the follicle in women who have failed to release in natural cycles despite an endogenous luteinizing hormone (LH) surge, and also despite treatment with human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) or a gonadotropin releasing hormone agonist (GnRHa). MATERIALS AND METHODS A single injection of 100 mg G-CSF was given in the late follicular phase followed by hCG 10,000 units… Expand
