New Data Confirms the Negative Impact of Febrile Neutropenia in Patients With Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma Receiving R-CHOP Chemotherapy
Date:6/13/2010

s an abnormally low level of neutrophils, an important infection-fighting white blood cell (WBC), in the blood stream.  A low white blood cell count indicates that the immune system is not as strong as it should be, and the risk for serious infection is increased.(iv)

FN is a common and potentially dangerous side effect of myelosuppressive chemotherapy leading to a heightened risk of infection, sometimes life-threatening, among people with cancer. Severe neutropenia and/or FN may lead physicians to delay the next cycle of chemotherapy or reduce the dose given (in order to reduce further toxicity).

About G-CSFs

Granulocyte-colony stimulating factors (G-CSFs) are haematopoetic growth factors. It stimulates the bone marrow to produce more white blood cells. A major side effect of chemotherapy is the reduction in white blood cells which makes the body less able to combat infection. The use of a G-CSF after chemotherapy reduces the risk to patients of developing febrile neutropenia and reduces the duration of neutropenia.(v)

For further information please refer to the SmPC for pegfilgrastim and filgrastim – two commonly used G-CSFs.
