Feedback:
G-CSFs help to prevent infection by reducing the incidence, severity, and duration of neutropenia associated with several chemotherapy regimens. The administration of a G-CSF should not lower red blood cell count or raise white blood cell count. They assist in the prevention of infection but do not necessarily resolve fatigue.
