    Reduct. in the duration of neutropenia and
    the incidence of febrile neutropenia in pts.

    in the duration of neutropenia in pts.
    undergoing myeloablative ther. followed
    by bone marrow transplant., considered
    to be at incr. risk of prolon. severe
    neutropenia. The safety and efficacy of
    Filgrastim are similar in adults and child.
    receiving cytotoxic chemother. Indic. for
    the mobilisation of peripheral blood
    progenitor cells (PBPCs). In pts., children/
    adults, with severe congen., cyclic or
    idiopathic neutropenia with an ANC of

    recurrent infec., long-term admin. of this
