What is Zarxio?

Zarxio is indicated for the treatment of neutropenia associated with chemotherapy as well as chronic neutropenia and its related complications (fever, infections, oropharyngeal ulcers).

Zarxio active ingredients

Zarxio (filgrastim-sndz) is a man-made granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF) manufactured using recombinant DNA technology. G-CSF is a naturally occurring substance in the body that helps produce neutrophils, a type of white blood cell. Neutrophils are the first line of defense against infection as well as helping to control the immune system’s response to severe injury and trauma. Colony-stimulating factors also affect neutrophil progenitor growth, its rate of growth, and function.

The most common side effects caused by Zarxio include:

  • Loss of appetite or weight loss
