We report on the partial effectiveness of sequential IL-3 and GM-CSF administration, following an ineffective 5-day trial with G-CSF, in a case of delayed graft failure after allogeneic bone marrow transplantation. Therapy with these growth factors was followed by a prompt (within 2 days) increase of neutrophil count, suggesting the possibility of a priming effect due to the previous G-CSF administration. The potential usefulness of this growth factor schedule administration in the treatment of graft failures after allogeneic bone marrow transplantation requires confirmation in controlled trials.
