Regulation of granulocyte and monocyte macrophage proliferation by colony stimulating factor a review






Experimental Hematology (Charlottesville) 1(4): 185-201

Regulation of granulocyte and monocyte macrophage proliferation by colony stimulating factor a review

The origin, chemical nature and in vitro action by CSF are discussed. The evidence for CSF as an important humoral regulator of granulopoiesis and monocyte formation in vivo is detailed. These systems have an important role in the study of human leukemia.
