abstract

  • The use of PBP plus GM-CSF accelerated hematologic recovery after this chemotherapeutic regimen compared with GM-CSF alone; there were reduced morbidity and platelet transfusion requirements. Recovery was sufficiently rapid that PBP were an acceptable alternative to autologous bone marrow transplantation in patients receiving high-dose carboplatin, etoposide, and cyclophosphamide.
