Effect of Recombinant Human Granulocyte Colony- Stimulating Factor on CD11b in Septic Neonates

In Vivo Effect of Recombinant Human Granulocyte Colony- Stimulating Factor on Neutrophilic Expression of CD11b in Septic Neonates


Lead Sponsor: Ain Shams University

Brief Summary

The investigators aimed to evaluate the effect of G-CSF administration in septic neonates on neutrophil production and CD11b expression.

Detailed Description

Neonates are susceptible to septicemia secondary to quantitative and qualitative neutrophilic defects. Granulocyte-colony stimulating factor (G-CSF) stimulates myeloid progenitor cell proliferation and induces selective neutrophil functions.
