Bayer Establishes US Special Access Program for Leukine(R) While Replacing Current Liquid Formulation
Date:1/23/2008

- Leukine lyophilized formulation temporarily reserved for patients with

Leukine is the only myeloid growth factor approved to reduce the incidence of infections resulting in early death following induction chemotherapy in older adults with AML and to prolong survival of patients with bone marrow graft failure or engraftment delay, as co
