Abstract

Four of 10 patients who were enrolled on protocols of high-dose immunosuppression with peripheral blood stem cell rescue for MS experienced neurologic worsening while receiving recombinant human granulocyte colony- stimulating factor. There was improvement when methylprednisolone was given to three of the patients, but one patient died of respiratory failure. The mechanism of the neurologic worsening is uncertain.
