Other adverse events of special importance associated with Neulasta include bone pain, allergic-type reactions including anaphylaxis (pegfilgrastim should be permanently discontinued in patients who experience a serious allergic reaction) and very rare cases of splenic rupture including fatal cases. Neulasta should be administered approximately 24 hours after administration of cytotoxic chemotherapy.
