White Blood Cell Injection

Feb 6, 2009

Hi Doc BY,

I would like to ask if the White Blood Cell is safe because I received a shot from my doctor to improve my WBC count?

Thank you!

Response from Dr. Young


I think you're referring to one of the neutrophil growth factors, like Neupogen or Neulasta--these are safe to use, provided that you have a need (ie, low neutrophil count).

Be well, BY
