RN: 208265-92-3
UNII: 3A58010674

Notes

  • Pegylated (r-G-CSF) conjugated to polyethylene glycol for treatment of neutropenic patients with non-myeloid malignancies who are at high risk for infection.
  • Pegylated (r-G-CSF) conjugated to polyethylene glycol for treatment of neutropenic patients with non-myeloid malignancies who are at high risk for infection.

    NCI: pegfilgrastim. A long-acting pegylated form of a recombinant therapeutic agent which is chemically identical to or similar to an endogenous human granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF). Produced endogenously by monocytes, fibroblasts, and endothelial cells, G-CSF binds to and activates specific cell surface receptors, stimulating neutrophil progenitor proliferation and differentiation and selected neutrophil functions. Conjugation of the cytokine with a branched polyethylene glycol molecule (pegylation) significantly increases its therapeutic half-life. (NCI Thesaurus)
