Dr. Braverman,
Can/would you use G-CSF to treat Elevated Cytokines when nothing else has worked to bring them down and all other immune issues have been addressed and responding to other immune therapies? If so, does this medication have to be taken months prior to a cycle of conception or is it only taken during the cycle of conception? Also, what is the cost of this medication and is it usually covered by insurance? Thank you and have a great day.

Hi Ann

yes we have used it to move into a more TH2 dominant state when other therapies have failed. It should still be considered experimental and used only when all other options have failed, but we are seeing excellent results so far.
Feel free to call me and schedule a consultation , I would be happy to review your case as well as the options with 'g-csf.
