Immunopharmacology Comments
GM-CSF is a cytokine that augments proliferation, differentiation, and maturation of granulocytes and is implicated in several chronic inflammatory diseases, including severe asthma [4]. Cytokine-neutralising experiments have showed GM-CSF to be a contributor to the anti-apoptotic activity of neutrophils generated by airway epithelial conditioned medium from more severe asthmatics [7].
