How Pegfilgrastim works

Pegfilgrastim is works by stimulating the bone marrow to produce more white blood cells. It also enhances the survival of the white blood cells by protecting it against the harmful effects of chemotherapy. This reduces the risk of neutropenia and its associated complications (such as fever, flu, and risk of infections) among patients receiving chemotherapy.
