Brief Summary

To evaluate the efficacy and safety of pegteograstim on chemotherapy-induced neutropenia in children with solid tumors

Detailed Description

Children with solid tumor experience neutropenia after cytotoxic chemotherapy, and they usually receive granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF) to stimulate neutrophil recovery. However it needs daily injection of G-CSF. Pegteograstim is a new formulation of PEGylated recombinant human G-CSF analogue pegfilgrastim. In this study, investigators aimed to evaluate the efficacy and safety of pegteograstim on chemotherapy-induced neutropenia in children with solid tumors.
