Abstract: For 10 consecutive patients in our unit who did not show a significant rise in blood progenitor cells within 14 days following chemotherapy and G-CSF, we increased the G-CSF dose from 5 to 10 microg/kg/day (n = 9) or from 10 to 15 microg/kg/day (n = 1). As a result, there were significant increases in total yield as well as yield per apheresis of mononuclear cells, CD34+ cells and CFU-GM (P < 0.025, <0.01 and <0.005, respectively). After G-CSF dose escalation, six of the 10 patients had sufficient CD34+ cells for performing transplantation. These results demonstrate a dose-dependent response of progenitor cell mobilization by G-CSF when used in combination with chemotherapy. Moreover, increasing the dose of G-CSF as late as the third week of mobilization may still provide sufficient cell yield even with patients who did not show a significant mobilization with conventional doses of G-CSF.
