Filgrastim (G-CSF, Neupogen)

(fil-GRA-stim)

Filgrastim or G-CSF (granulocyte-colony stimulating factor) is a medication that is used in some patients to try to stimulate certain blood cells (white blood cells) to enter the circulation faster after receiving chemotherapy.

This decreases the time that you are without certain blood cells that are used to fight infections.

It is also sometimes used in combination with other medicines like ganciclovir and Septra that can cause blood counts to decrease.
