Therapeutic efficacy of recombinant interleukin-6 (IL-6) alone and combined with recombinant human IL-3 in a nonhuman primate model of high-dose, sublethal radiation-induced marrow aplasia.

Abstract

Using a nonhuman-primate model of radiation-induced bone marrow aplasia, we examined whether the single, concomitant, or sequential administration of recombinant human interleukin-3 (IL-3) and IL-6 would promote bone marrow regeneration measured by an increase in circulating platelets (PLT) and neutrophils (PMN). Rhesus monkeys were irradiated at 450 cGy… (More)
