Neulasta® helps reduce the risk of infection by boosting your white blood cell count to strengthen your immune system.2
Neulasta® (pegfilgrastim) is a prescription medicine used to help reduce the chance of infection due to a low white blood cell count, in people with certain types of cancer (non-myeloid), who receive anti-cancer medicines (chemotherapy) that can cause fever and low blood cell count.2
It is not known if Neulasta® is safe and effective in children.2
Neulasta® has possible serious side effects. Do not take Neulasta® if you have had a serious allergic reaction to Neulasta® (pegfilgrastim) or to NEUPOGEN® (filgrastim).2 Please see additional Important Safety Information.Learn About Neulasta®
