Hematopoietic Cell Growth Factors
Hematopoietic Cell Growth Factor
Hematopoietic Stem Cell Stimulators
Hematopoietic Stem Cell-Activating Factors
These growth factors comprise a family of hematopoietic regulators with biological specificities defined by their ability to support proliferation and differentiation of blood cells of different lineages. ERYTHROPOIETIN and the COLONY-STIMULATING FACTORS belong to this family. Some of these factors have been studied and used in the treatment of chemotherapy-induced neutropenia, myelodysplastic syndromes, and bone marrow failure syndromes.
