In NEUPOGEN clinical trials of patients with cancer receiving myelosuppressive chemotherapy, WBC counts > 100,000/mm³ have been reported in less than 5% of patients, but were not associated with any reported adverse clinical effects. Patients in the BMT studies received up to 138 mcg/kg/day without toxic effects, although there was a flattening of the dose response curve above daily doses of greater than 10 mcg/kg/day.

CONTRAINDICATIONS

NEUPOGEN is contraindicated in patients with a history of serious allergic reactions to human granulocyte colony-stimulating factors such as filgrastim or pegfilgrastim [see WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS].
