  • Kirtida Patel on Oct, 25, 2011:

    I am taking Neupogen for the Neutrophilia during chemo therapy to increase WBCs and platelets. First two treatments increased the cell count. The third one did not because I think, it interacts with the Keflex, which doctor had prescribed me for the skin redness. I am on both Neupogen and Keflex at same time and I feel, my cell count is not increased because the Neupogen (made from E. Coli bacteria) is killed by Keflex (kills the cell walls of bacteria). Any one did any study about this?

    I am a pharmacist and I think I can help clear this up for you. Neupogen is a type of protein known as a "granulocyte stimulating factor" that is produced by E. coli bacteria. The gene for producing what is essentially Neupogen is inserted into the genome of a captive colony of E. coli. Therefore, the Neupogen is merely a harvested byproduct of the E. coli in the manufacturer's lab. There is no bacteria in your Neupogen and consequently you have no reason to be concerned about the Keflex inactivating the Neupogen. Hope this helps
