The production and functional activity of two important white blood cells, the granulocytes and macrophages, are regulated mainly by a group of glycoprotein colony-stimulating factors. The colony-stimulating factors have been mass-produced with recombinant technology and are now proving of value in preventing or suppressing infections in a variety of individuals with subnormal or defective formation of blood cells.
