Trial of Filgrastim Versus Placebo Following Allogeneic Bone Marrow Transplantation
Recruitment status was Recruiting
The effect of haematopoietic growth factors on neutrophil recovery after allogeneic bone marrow transplantation is well recognized. Recent laboratory studies demonstrated that these cytokines may also modify T-cell and dendritic cell function, but whether the effect is strong enough to alter the risk of graft-versus-host disease (GvHD) is unclear.
The aim of this randomised study is to determine the effect of granulocyte colony-stimulating factor [G-CSF] (Neupogen; filgrastim) on the risk of acute GvHD after allogeneic bone marrow transplantation.
