Aerosol gm csf
Aerosol gm csf - an aerosol inhalation formulation containing a yeast derived glycosylated recombinant form of human granulocyte macrophage colony stimulating factor (gm csf) with potential immunostimulating activity. Sargramostim binds to specific cell surface receptors, modulating the proliferation and differentiation of a variety of hematopoietic progenitor cells with some specificity towards stimulation of leukocyte production. This agent also activates neutrophils, monocytes, macrophages, and dendritic cells and promotes antigen presentation, upregulates antibody dependent cellular cytotoxicity (adcc), and increases interleukin 2 mediated, lymphokine activated killer cell function. Aerosol inhalation may help achieve high concentrations of sargramostim in the lung.
