Colony-stimulating factors (CSFs) are cytokines that stimulate the proliferation of bone marrow cells in agar cultures and the creation of granulocytes, macrophages and other blood cells. Examples include: interleukin-3 (IL-3), granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF), granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor (GM-CSF), macrophage colony-stimulating factor (M-CSF) and stem cell factor (SCF).[1]
