Product Description
Pegstim - Pegfilgrastim Injection is used to prevent or treat neutropenia (having a lower than normal number of white blood cells called neutrophils), which in turn lowers a person's risk of serious infections. Neutropenia can sometimes occur as a result of cancer chemotherapy or other treatments.

How does this drug work?

Pegfilgrastim is a longer-acting form of the drug filgrastim. It is a man-made version of a protein called granulocyte-colony stimulating factor (G-CSF). This protein is normally made by some cells in the body to stimulate the bone marrow to make more infection-fighting white blood cells called neutrophils. The man-made version (filgrastim) has the same effect when injected into the body.

Pegfilgrastim is made by attaching filgrastim to a molecule called polyethylene glycol (PEG). This addition helps it stay in the body longer than filgrastim, which means it can be given less often and still get the same result.
